WBW News & Action: Prosecuted for Not Killing

If this was forwarded to you, sign up for future news here.

Ukraine is prosecuting Yurii Sheliazhenko for supporting peace. Sign the petition to support Yurii. Hear what Yurii says about it. Read about the military breaking into his apartment.


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!

Online Book Club with David Swanson and The Monroe Doctrine at 200 and What to Replace it With: In September 2023 WBW will be holding a weekly discussion each of four weeks. Swanson will send each participant a signed paperback or an ebook of your choice, and let you know the Zoom details when you sign up.
