May 23, 2022
Speakers: Scott Ritter – Former UN Weapons Inspector, Ajamu Baraka – Black Alliance for Peace, Sara Flounders – International Action Center, Alan Freeman – International Manifesto Group Moderator – Joe Lombardo, UNAC Coordinator
The webinar discussed the present situation in Ukraine as well as what position the peace movement should take. Our movement has been affected by the massive propaganda and censorship that we are experiencing in the US. This war brings the US in direct confrontation with Russia, a major nuclear power. Join us for this important discussion.
As COP26 met in Scotland during this year of extreme weather due to climate change, it is more important than ever that the Climate Change and Antiwar movements work together to end these threats to humankind. This important webinar helped make some of these connections and explained the danger of the new US initiated arms race in space.
