EMPORIA PEACE PROJECT
The Emporia Peace Project is an organization formed after the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001. EPP has been organized by students and faculty of Emporia State University, as well as residents of Emporia, who are concerned about the U.S. government's impulsive move toward war as a solution to the nation's—and the world's—present situation.
Among our aims is to offer alternative information and news to those who believe that mainstream news media have been by and large fanning the flames of martial discourse and one of its by-products, ethnic hate. We are particularly interested in providing support to those who may face social confrontation as a result of personal demonstrations of dissent.
Another aim is to collectivize, to show solidarity during the sudden appearence of rhetoric asserting that to be "American" is to be "unified" in war consensus. Our organization, as do many throughout the nation, demonstrates that war consensus is a myth. We voice dissent at the local level.
A third aim is to provide information and support to international students and residents in the present climate.
