The purpose of the MAKE HIP HOP NOT WAR CAMPAIGN is to get more people of color, college students and young people involved in the anti-war movement. Make Hip Hop Not War will provide the anti-war movement with a “surge” that could transform current public opinion which opposes the war into powerful mobilization against the war. A stronger and more diverse mobilization is critical to force our policymakers to take concrete steps to withdraw our troops from Iraq and to prevent an attack on Iran.

Our need for racial justice is rooted in the decimation and annihilation of our natives peoples, in the historic and monumental enslavement and marginalization of African peoples, it informs our excuse to go to war without counting the dead or measuring the destruction, and it is the weight we put on the back of every so-called illegal laborer who harvests our sustenance, builds our shelters, and who will ultimately dig our graves."-- Walter Mosley
