Use some of the talking points below or the Draft Statement on Ukraine Escalation in letters to the editor, OpEds, comments on published articles, social media posts and radio/podcast interviews:
  • The proxy war with Russia in Ukraine and Israel’s genocidal assault on the Palestinian people in Gaza both serve US imperial interests to control the world and exploit the world's resources

  • Both risk a wider war, possibly leading to World War 3.

  • US military spending for Israel & Ukraine is draining the people of our own country of resources-housing, healthcare, education, desperately needed at home.

  • Both Ukrainians and Palestinians are being sacrificed so the US can maintain the US empire.

  • Both wars are worsening the climate crisis with contamination of land, air and water, increased greenhouse gas emissions and money robbed from solutions to the climate crisis.

  • Both wars embolden NATO, a nuclear-armed alliance that threatens global security in its escalation of the nuclear arms race.

    The U.S. already promised, and failed, to allow a referendum, as part of the Minsk agreements. The U.S. always promises to have referendums, then changes its mind when their folks poll poorly, remember Vietnam? Crimea and the breakaway provinces already had them. So sure, demand Minsk be honored, but don’t let them negotiate ANOTHER framework again. And demand U.S./NATO troops leave too, not only Russian troops; they are the only ones we have any control over.
