Vigil for Peace in Ukraine!
June 4, 2022 @ 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Join us on Saturday, June 4, 10:30 am to 12:30 noon, for a Vigil at Grand Army Plaza Arch. We’ll be distributing this flyer and holding a banner and signs, urging a cease-fire and serious negotiations to end this war, which is killing thousands of people, displacing millions, and causing hunger, inflation, and increased militarism around the world.
NOTE: We’ll be in front of the Library, not under the Arch. Look for our table!
Brooklyn for Peace strongly condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine (see our statement.) However, we also believe the priority of the U.S. at this time should be the encouragement of a cease-fire and energetic diplomacy, designed to create long-term peace.
This recent Op-Ed in the New York Times The War in Ukraine May Be Impossible to Stop. And the U.S. Deserves Much of the Blame is very anxiety-provoking. We need to amplify the voices pushing for a cease-fire and negotiations to end the war!
