Global Week of Action Boston Launch

Saturday, Sept. 30

12:00pm noon

 

On June 10-11 three hundred people representing organizations from 32 countries met in Vienna, Austria for the International Summit for Peace in Ukraine. The summit issued a call for people in all countries to join together for a week of Global Mobilization for an immediate ceasefire and peace negotiations to end this war, and set the week of September 30 to October 8 for this mobilization.

Here in Boston we will kick off this week of mobilization with a public rally in Downtown Crossing in Boston followed by a march to the Boston Common.  Students from Greater Boston colleges will participate and address the event. During the following week there will be a national webinar teach-in on the war, media events and tabling with postcards in different communities and on different campuses. Please join us on Saturday, September 30 to begin this week to promote a ceasefire and negotiations as the only way to end this war and avoid potential catastrophe for the planet.

  • The war must end now if we want to prevent hundreds of thousands more dead and maimed soldiers and thousands more civilians
  • This war must end now if the world is to come together to prevent certain climate catastophe as fossil fuel emissions grow by leaps and bounds and fires and floods and murderous heat waves rage on.
  • This war must end now if Ukraine is not to be destroyed.
  • This war must end now if we want to reduce the growing danger of it leading to nuclear war
  • This war must end now if global hunger from restrictions and sanctions on food deliveries is to be avoided
  • This war must end now if the risk to a nuclear meltdown of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is to be prevented
  • And every week billions of our tax dollars are diverted from housing, public health, education, public transportation and numreous other important needs here at home to pay for the war
