The International Summit for Peace in Ukraine, held in Vienna earlier this summer, proposed Global Days of Action, Sept. 30 – Oct. 8th, 2023. Plan a meeting, rally, forum, dramatic performance, vigil, banner-drop, tabling, teach-in, protest, art-creation, or blockading of a weapons shipment. Add it to the events page, or find one there already planned near you. If in the U.S., also add it to Peace in Ukraine Coalition. Plan and promote your actions at NoWar2023 on Sept. 22-24.
This war will end with compromise and negotiation or with nuclear apocalypse. Total defeat of either side is dramatically less likely. So, while both sides are to blame, and while most people like to blame only one side or the other, what matters right now is that both sides are insisting on unconditional surrender, which will not happen — nuclear war will happen first. We need negotiations now!
