Tuesday, June 6 Capitol Calling Party: Let's Talk About Crimea

On Tuesday, June 6, join us to talk with special guests about Crimea, as well as the urgent need for debate on the US-Russia proxy war.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry recently summoned US diplomats from the US embassy in Moscow to object to National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s comments suggesting the US supports Ukrainian strikes on Crimea, a Black Sea peninsula reunified or annexed by Russia (depending on one’s perspective) after the 2014 US-backed coup in Ukraine. From Moscow’s vantage point, US-assisted attacks on Crimea are as provocative as direct attacks inside Russia.

Join us as we speak with journalist Rick Sterling, who recently returned from Crimea, to update us on the political climate, as well as Tamara Lorincz, an activist with the NO to NATO Network focused on State Department censorship of dissenting views on Crimea, as well as the war in Ukraine.

Featuring:

Rick Sterling is a Canadian American journalist who recently returned from Crimea, a peninsula located between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. Rick will discuss what he saw and heard there, as well as his analysis of the political situation in Crimea, home to ethnic Russians who, in 2014, voted to join the Russian Federation. Having previously worked in publishing, electronics and aerospace, Rick is active in the Mt. Diablo Peace and Justice Center, Syria Support Movement, and Task Force on the Americas. His writing is published at AntiWar.com, LA Progressive and other progressive sites.

Tamara Lorincz serves on the advisory committee of the No to NATO Network, Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space, and World Beyond War. She is a PhD candidate in Global Governance at the Balsillie School for International Affairs at Wilfrid Laurier University and holds a Masters in International Politics & Security Studies from the University of Bradford, as well as a law degree and MBA from Dalhousie University. Her research focuses on the climate and environmental impacts of the military. As a member of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom-Canada, she serves as the International’s convenor of the Environment Working Group.
