CODEPINK'S STATEMENT ON THE CPC'S DECISION TO WITHDRAWAL LETTER TO BIDEN REGARDING UKRAINE WAR
It is sad that we live in such a political climate where being an advocate for peace and a policymaker that seeks diplomacy is met with such fierce opposition and political backlash. We still commend the signatories of the Ukraine letter and their pursuit of negotiations instead of escalation. Every day that we as a nation fail to promote diplomacy is another day we accept the death and destruction in Ukraine and the threat of a nuclear war that could destroy the entire planet.
For us, peace is not a partisan issue. Regardless of what happens in the midterm elections, we will continue to push all of our elected officials, including President Biden, to engage all parties in the conflict to find a negotiated solution to stop the killing, avert a nuclear war, and use our collective resources for life-affirming pursuits, not war.
