The world urgently needs a ceasefire and diplomacy in Ukraine before thousands more are killed and the war widens to include a direct war between the United States and Russia. Alongside the Peace in Ukraine Coalition, CODEPINK is asking you to sign this petition demanding vigorous diplomatic efforts to end the war in Ukraine.
To build the movement needed to help end the war in Ukraine, we’ll need to reach more people. That’s why we’re raising funds to place this petition as an ad or series of ads in a major newspaper. Please make a contribution towards publishing this petition as an ad campaign in a Capitol Hill newspaper.
The greater the number of signatures submitted and money raised will mean bigger and better ad placements.
Together, we can build the movement needed to end the war in Ukraine.
To Presidents Biden, Putin and Zelensky:
IT’S TIME TO STOP THE KILLING AND DEVASTATION. CEASEFIRE & PEACE NEGOTIATIONS NOW!
The war in Ukraine has taken tens of thousands of Ukrainian and Russian lives, uprooted millions, contaminated land, air and water and worsened the climate crisis.
The longer the war goes on, the greater the danger of spiraling escalation which can lead to a wider war, environmental devastation and nuclear annihilation.
The war diverts billions that could be addressing urgent human needs.
Total military victory cannot be achieved by either Russia or Ukraine. It is time to support the calls by Pope Francis, United Nations Secretary-General Guterres, Presidents Lula de Silva of Brazil, Erdoğan of Turkey, Xi of China, and others for a ceasefire and a negotiated end to this calamitous war.
Stop the killing, agree to a ceasefire and begin negotiations!
