Peace in Ukraine!
Say NO to Endless U.S. Wars!
Fund People’s Needs, Not the War Machine!
On Saturday, March 18, people from all across the country will gather outside the White House in Washington, D.C., to demand an end to the war in Ukraine and all the endless wars the government is waging with our blood and our tax dollars.
In the last year, Congress has appropriated more than $116 BILLION for the Ukrainian government. That’s more than it spent here at home on education, cops – even prisons. The goal isn’t to help the people of Ukraine, but simply to “weaken Russia,” as was recently stated by U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin – even at the risk of a catastrophic nuclear war that could end all life on Earth.
Meanwhile, back home, evictions are skyrocketing. Supplemental SNAP benefits have ended. Millions are being forced off Medicaid. Credit card debt is at an all-time high because people have run through their savings and are now deep in the hole just trying to put food on the table.
The March 18 demonstration will make the connections between the human and financial toll of U.S. militarism at home and abroad:
- Peace in Ukraine – No weapons, no money for the Ukraine war!
- Abolish NATO – End U.S. militarism & sanctions!
- Fund people’s needs, not the war machine!
- No war with China!
- End U.S. aid to racist apartheid Israel!
- Fight racism & bigotry at home, not other peoples!
- U.S. hands off Haiti!
- End AFRICOM!
- End Sanctions on Syria!
This protest represents the coming together of more than 200 organizations, including the ANSWER Coalition, United National Antiwar Coalition, Black Alliance for Peace, Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, International Action Center, Struggle-La Lucha, DSA International Committee, Shenandoah Valley Antiwar Coalition, Dissenters at UVA, Virginia Defenders for Freedom, Justice & Equality and the Defenders’ Odessa Solidarity Campaign.
Join with us in this historic demonstration and make the warmakers listen to the will of the people!
At this point, we know of carpools and vans being organized from Hampton Roads, Richmond and Norfolk:
