With 75+ planned rallies and demonstrations in the US and abroad, we want to uplift those who mobilized people in their communities to show the people say: NO War with Russia over Ukraine!
Juliana, a long-time volunteer with CODEPINK in Mt. Rainier, MD said, “Larger rallies serve to show us who we are and bring us together in solidarity. Small ones like this, when a movement is just starting an upswing (we hope!), serve more to get folks to notice that there actually is another point of view. We got quite a few supportive honks, and a lot of stares. Hopefully we sparked a few questions and conversations among folks who likely have been inundated in the official narrative.”
Max, an organizer of a Baltimore rally stated, “It is imperative that we keep speaking out, and like Matt Lee (of the AP), demand of our government and our legislators that war is not the answer, that diplomacy can lead to peace and that we will not allow the weapons contractors to profit from a crisis.”
While Congress is set to fast track $500 million in “security assistance” to Ukraine, they continue to never be able to find the funds to support communities and climate justice. To learn more and take action for no No War Against Russia over Ukraine, click here!
