The International Action Center was founded in 1992. From the very first day, our underlying motivation has been the same: Against U.S. imperialism, for people’s needs. We look towards a society free of war, racism, and unemployment; where sexism and the oppression of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans people are abolished; their jobs, education and health care are rights and not privileges.
IAC have led campaigns against the Pentagon wars and sanctions against Iraq, Cuba, and Yugoslavia. We have supported the Puerto Rican people in their fight to get the U.S. Navy out of Vieques. In every struggle, we solidarize ourselves with the most determined opponents of racism war, and colonialism.
In the U.S., the fight against racism, police brutality and the death penalty is paramount. We have played a leading people in the fight to free Mumia Abu-Jamal and spearheaded the opposition to Shaka Sankofa’s execution.
We work to build links between activists of many different struggles and facing many forms of oppression. We take on our shoulder the task of building a giant wave of resistance in the United States against the generals and bankers who try to rule the world in our name.
