SAT-SUN: Global Mobilization Week – Stop The War in Ukraine

September 30, 2023 @ 8:00 AM October 8, 2023 @ 6:00 PM

The International Summit for Peace in Ukraine (ISP) was held in Vienna on June 10 -11. Over 330 people from 32 countries on 6 continents, including members of the Peace in Ukraine Coalition, came to Vienna, in spite of attempts by warmakers and their enablers to keep the event from happening.

The summit was a big step toward building a unified global movement to stop the war. The declaration from organizers called on “leaders in all countries to act in support of an immediate ceasefire and negotiations to end the war in Ukraine.” It ended with a call for a “Global Mobilization the week of September 30 – October 8 for an immediate ceasefire and negotiations” to stop the killing. Check out national and local events here.

We’ll have a vigil and outreach table on Saturday, October 7. Also, we’ll be at the Flatbush Frolic on Sunday, October 15. Please email pej@brooklynpeace.org for details and to let us know you can join us! And if you haven’t already done so, please sign and share our petition to Congress. Each day the war in Ukraine drags on, the more lives are lost and the closer we come to an accidental or intentional nuclear war.
