Ukraine War Anniversary; Press Conference and Picket at Barbara Lee’s Oakland Office
Please spread the word. Thanks!
We are gathering to ask Representative Lee to speak out publicly for an end to the conflict in Ukraine, actually a U.S./NATO proxy war with Russia. We’re asking her to stop voting for weapons to Ukraine, which is escalating the conflict and risking nuclear war. We re asking her to publicly state her position on a ceasefire, diplomacy, negotiations, an end to weapons funding, and nuclear war. Lee is running for Senate, and we need to know if she will be a peace candidate. Her constituents will speak to her at the event, asking for funding for healthcare, housing, education, clean energy, climate justice, student debt relief, child and elder care, and all human needs that are having to beg for resources because of the Democratic and Republican Parties’ unified support for U.S. militarism and the war machine. Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Grumman, etc. are making a fortune while Lee’s constituents struggle to make ends meet. Speakers, street theater, music, dance, poetry, picket line. We’ll have posters and banners available.
NOTE: if there are enough “Billionaires for War” actors there, we can do a skit.
