LA: Rally & Peace Walk for Ukraine

Rally and peace walk with CODEPINK on Venice Beach Sunday, November 6, as we edge closer to the brink of nuclear war!

The war in Ukraine is a disaster for the people of Ukraine and a terrible threat to us all, including increasing the danger of nuclear war. We oppose the Russian invasion and call for the immediate withdrawal of all Russian troops. We recognize that the expansion of NATO and the aggressive approach of Western nations have helped cause the crisis and we demand an end to NATO expansion. We also oppose sanctions that will harm ordinary Russians and call on all countries to welcome refugees fleeing the war. 

CODEPINK demands:

CEASEFIRE Now.
DO NOT RISK NUCLEAR WAR! 
DIPLOMACY to End the War in Ukraine.
$$$ for Climate, Jobs, Healthcare, & Housing.
NOT Weapons for Endless War

Join us in Venice Beach as we organize amongst peace-loving people to say No to War in Ukraine; Yes to Negotiations and Peace.

Can we count you in?

    Hi, I wrote a letter to Ysabel. Here is an excerpt from my letter for you to consider below…..I’m also sharing this link to a background briefing I wrote for myself to better understand the Ukraine situation; dispel conspiracies; address objections to helping or denying help to Ukraine.Here’s my brief https://bit.ly/3DkGeYG and my comments to Ysabel about Putin’s Genocidal War Machine:
    We have all seen Putin’s vision for Ukraine—-we saw it when the small city of Bucha was liberated by Ukrainian forces. When Russian forces departed this town with a pre-war population of only 25,000 residents, Putin left behind mass graves where so far 500 bodies have been recovered….and counting. The number of dead recovered so far just from the mass graves is 2 percent of the population. Every 2 out of 100 residents has been tossed into mass graves…and counting…
    Defenseless, civilian, residents of Bucha were tortured, tied behind-the-back, shot dead at point-blank range, and tossed into mass graves or left in the middle of the street as their final resting place. This is REALITY. This is NOT fake news promoted by Putin’s propaganda machine that has made absurd claims about Ukrainians committing genocide against their fellow citizens of ethnic Russian heritage.
    Whenever Putin’s troops evacuate a Ukrainian town, Putin leaves behind another Bucha as a reminder of his willingness to commit horrendous acts of terror and war crimes. Let me simply ask you these simple questions Ysabel.
    7. Are these Ukrainian leaders I am connecting you with in Los Angeles wrong for helping their families and friends?
    8. Are you willing to condone these atrocities by denying MILITARY aid to Ukraine necessary to stop rapes, murders, and massacres of Bucha and almost everywhere else by Putin’s evacuating military machine? This is not Medea Benjamin’s land of Make-Believe. Take away their guns and the Ukrainians will be slaughtered.
    9. Are you willing to tell these very real Ukrainians on this email list that you want to DENY them the right to exist?
    10. Why does CodePink promote the DENIAL of U.S. military aid, economic aid, and humanitarian supplies necessary for Ukrainians to defend their country? To protect their homes and families?
    Let me add.. …..I am aware of America’s prior roles in creating false flag operations in Havana, Gulf of Tonkin, Iraq and elsewhere to be used as pretenses for war. My position is simple—Following mom’s admonitions to me as a child, Two Wrongs don’t make a right. W’s immoral Iraq invasion does not justify Putin or any other leader to wage unprovoked war on a neighbor.
