feb 24 call for diplomacy

Marking the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, join with others in the Defuse Nuclear War coalition to call on the United States to LEAD WITH DIPLOMACY instead of escalation to end the war.

Defuse Nuclear War Over Ukraine!

Join Feb. 24, 2023 Global Protests

Actions Needed: Cease Fire! Stop the Flow of Weapons to Ukraine!

Hold Negotiations in a Neutral Location! Diplomacy is the Path to Peace!

As the Feb. 24 anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine approaches, war hawks and merchants of death are moving the world closer to global destruction. Many scholars and scientists say the world has never been closer to nuclear catastrophe. See https://www.nationofchange.org/2023/02/09/weve-never-been-closer-to-nuclear-catastrophe-who-gains-by-ignoring-it/? The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has put their doomsday clock minute hand closest to midnight since the clock was designed in 1947.  To illustrate the present closeness to nuclear war–it’s now 90 seconds before midnight. UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, called the Doomsday Clock a “global alarm clock.” Hopefully it will awaken the world from sleepwalking to Nuclear Armageddon.

The US and NATO continue to flood Ukraine with weapons and more weapons. The US alone has pumped in more than $100 Billions dollars to aid the war effort, as the Pentagon’s overall budget now approaches $1 Trillion dollars annuallyThe European news giant, Reuters, announced that Americans have been told to leave Russia. Poland is calling up over 200,000 men for military training and NATO now has ten times the number of their troops on Russian borders than last year. Tanks, planes, missiles, and drones flood Ukraine. 100 Ukrainians are doing Patriot missile training in Oklahoma as the walk to war becomes a trot. And… U.S. destruction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.  More war is NOT the answer. Speak up for peace NOW before it is too late!
