The Peace in Ukraine Coalition Opposes $95 billion for war in Ukraine and Gaza genocide

Block the Bill. No More Weapons for Israel or Ukraine!!!

The Peace in Ukraine Coalition calls all on members of Congress to vote against the Biden administration’s $95 billion supplemental war spending bill that includes $61 billion to continue the war in Ukraine, $14 billion for weapons for Israel’s war on the Palestinian people, $2.4 billion for the attacks on Yemen and $8 billion to further militarize East Asia for a confrontation with China.  We also oppose any stand-alone bill that may follow with billions in weapons for war. We call for immediate ceasefires in Gaza and Ukraine. 

We condemn Israel’s assault on the Palestinian people of Gaza and US complicity in this genocide. We call for: an immediate ceasefire;  an end to US weapons transfers to Israel; no more US blocking of ceasefire resolutions in the UN; reinstatement of funding for UNRWA.

We stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine, South Africa, Yemen and the millions of people in the US and around the world taking action to let Gaza live.

US militarism in the Middle East, including strikes on Yemen, Iraq and Syria, is escalating tension that may lead to the war with Iran that hawks are openly pushing for. Along with its proxy war against Russia in Ukraine, the US is taking the world to the brink of World War 3.

The recent US strikes on Yemen continue our country’s shameful legacy of attacks on one of the most impoverished nations in the Middle East. The blockade on Israeli shipping aims to secure a permanent ceasefire in Gaza. However, instead of supporting calls for a ceasefire, the White House is bombing Yemen. 

The US support for and complicity with Israel’s slaughter in Gaza, in defiance of the UN and international law, further exposes the hypocrisy of US foreign policy with respect to the war in Ukraine.  The US follows its self-proclaimed rules selectively as it continues to pick and choose which conflicts it frames as ones that violate “the rules-based order” and which do not.

Notably in Israel’s war almost 30,000 civilians have been killed in Gaza, including over 10,000 children in less than 5 months of war. While the US professes concern for civilian casualties and alleged Russian war crimes in Ukraine, it is fully complicit and responsible for Israeli war crimes far more horrific and widespread against the people of Palestine

While the focus of our coalition is for Peace in Ukraine, many of our coalition organizations and members are allies, supporters and activists as part of the movement for a Free Palestine. 

 Join us in demanding and taking action.

    A permanent ceasefire in Gaza and Ukraine can only be established with NO US Military Aid to Israel or Ukraine. Negotiations cannot successfully be enacted without Ceasefire. It’s often been said," Hands off Yemen!" And for good reason…skirmishing with the Yemene can only lead to a fuller blown conflict. An all-out WAR with Iran is inevitable unless skirmishing ceases.

    thank you for clarity and comprehensiveness. It helps to at least be able to comprehend the chaos and inhumanity

    Fundamentally, Americans and Canadians and Europeans need to demand an end to these pro-war policies and continuously make committed efforts at Diplomatic Peace Talks to peacefully resolve all of these current conflicts. War and killing will NEVER produce a peaceful world and will never resolve any conflict. War is just plain STUPID and all wars and violence violate people’s Human Right for Human Security & Safety.

    How the hell can someone who calls themselves “liberal” or “progressive” be supportive of any of these war policies? People have been DUPED by swallowing the lies and propaganda that “justifies” all these atrocities and war-supporting policies.

    Enough of this! Let’s Spend Our Public Money on People & Planet.
