"We call on Libya, Cuba, and Syria to live up to the agreements they have signed. We will watch closely their actions, not simply listen to their words. Working with our allies, we will expose those countries that do not live up to their commitments." [more]
"Human right must be respected by all, and in all circumstances. That is why the international community is right to seek to investigate the recent assault on Jenin." [more]

This website is a tribute to Why War?, one of the nation's first and most innovative post-9/11 student antiwar organizations. Born on October 22, 2001 at Swarthmore College, we were a handful of freshmen and sophmores who vocally opposed the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.

We hope that it continues to serve future activists and we remain confident that humanity is on the verge birthing a better world.
