International Emergency Online Rally: No War in Ukraine – No to NATO
On Sat 26 Feb, a global community of peace activists came together to speak out against the Russian invasion of #Ukraine, demand de-escalation and an end to wars and occupations across the world from Yemen to Palestine.
This is URGENT! We are horrified at the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine. We must come together across borders to demand a diplomatic solution to the present crisis. As part of that solution, Ukrainian membership in NATO must be off the table. The crisis over Ukraine has exposed how dangerous NATO is. It is an aggressive military alliance that has massively expanded since the end of the Cold War. And as we head towards the next NATO summit in Madrid in June - and the Peace Summit organized by the movements - let's come
together, across the Atlantic, to say No to War, No to NATO.
