Tuesday, March 1 Capitol Calling Party: No War in Ukraine! Negotiations, not Escalation

Tuesday, March 1 Capitol Calling Party: No War in Ukraine! Negotiations, not Escalation


On Tuesday, March 1, join CODEPINK Congress & Massachusetts Peace Action for the third event in our SPECIAL SERIES ON FOREIGN POLICY! This event is also co-sponsored by the Campaign for Peace, Disarmament and Common Security.

CODEPINK Congress will be followed by a viewing of the State of the Union address at 6pm PT/9pm ET,  during which time CODEPINK will post suggested social media messages stressing diplomatic solutions and participants can post their reactions to President Biden's speech. The CODEPINK Peace Collective will join us for the State of the Union, as well as Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's commentary - just stay on the original Zoom call! 

Tensions between the U.S. and Russia are higher than they've been in many years. The U.S. insists that Ukraine may join NATO in the future while Russia insists that it should not. NATO has become a worldwide military alliance as the U.S. pursues its policy of a new Cold War against Russia. Will Ukraine be recognized as a neutral nation or will the U.S. maintain its goal of integrating Ukraine into NATO? Can Europe turn towards a common security policy before NATO’s June summit in Madrid?

*Note: By RSVPing to this event, you are signing up to join the CODEPINK AND either Massachusetts Peace Action or your local Peace Action affiliate's email list

Featured Guests:

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson is an adjunct professor of government and public policy at the College of William and Mary and the former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell (2002 to 2005). He is a critic of U.S. foreign policy surrounding the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, Iran, and the new Cold Wars with China and Russia, and asserts that the U.S. is not a democracy but a war state that forces its will on the global community. In 2020, Wilkerson worked on bipartisan projects to prepare for the possibility that a defeated Donald Trump would refuse to leave office.

Reiner Braun¬†is the executive director of the International Peace Bureau, the founder of the No to NATO Network, and is active with the International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Global Responsibility (INES) and the International Association of Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms (IALANA).
