Help Johnson County get rid of their Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, and avoid acquiring a new one!

There is a meeting of the Johnson County Supervisors on Monday (tomorrow) morning at 9:00 am. The second link, below, allows you to join the Zoom call. No need to participate (feel free, of course), but just joining and muting will let the supervisors know you are paying attention. You don't need to live in Johnson County as this militarization of law enforcement negatively impacts all Iowans.

Veterans For Peace Chapter #161 and PEACE Iowa announce a ”No to War on Yemen” caravan, to begin at noon on January 25th at Mercer Park in Iowa City.
This caravan is one of many similar events happening that day across the USA.
In November, the UN director of the World Food Programme declared Yemen the worst humanitarian disaster in the world. Starvation has already claimed tens of thousands, and another 10 million are close to starving. The US continues to provide military support to Saudi Arabia, as it has for over 5 years, has cut food aid, and has declared increased sanctions. The January 25th caravan will call for an end to US military involvement, an end to arms shipments to Saudi Arabia, an increase in humanitarian aid and a speedy end to sanctions.

The caravan will go through downtown Iowa City, with the whole event lasting about an hour. Social distancing will be observed throughout. Public is invited to join. Arrive before noon at Mercer Park, 2701 Bradford Dr, Iowa City.

This coastal town needs federal aid for climate adaptation. It will get a military truck instead.

“In Johnson County, Iowa, for example, sheriffs have never used their military-grade ‘mine-resistant’ armored vehicle to support residents during blizzards as it was originally procured for in 2014. Instead, it has been used to do things like disrupting Black Lives Matter protests and serving arrest warrants.”
