The Russian war on Ukraine is escalating by the hour. Talk of a no fly zone which will result in much greater military conflict is only further inflaming the situation. The danger of further escalations by the US and NATO threaten a much wider conflict which must be resisted. We are talking about a real threat of nuclear powers in direct conflict.
The actions of Putin in invading Ukraine have shocked the world. The longer the war continues, the longer the suffering will continue.
A huge convoy of Russian troops is approaching Kyiv and there have been devastating air attacks in which over 100 civilians have been killed. We must demand the withdrawal of all Russian forces and a ceasefire immediately.
In Russia and around the world people are protesting for peace and a negotiated settlement to the war. We must send them our solidarity and do so by following their lead and taking to our own streets to demand an end to this war.
This Sunday (6th March) there will be an International Day of Action against war which Plymouth Trades Council is supporting.
Join us at the Sundial as we hold a vigil for peace and invite speakers to express their opposition to this war as well as any escalation by NATO forces.
