May 7 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Tweet to your representatives in Congress and tell them to oppose spending for endless weapons shipments leading to a possible nuclear confrontation! Tweet to Pelosi to unlink military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine. Tweet to tell President Biden, WH Chief of Staff Ron Klain, Secretary of State Antony Blinken & Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to stop pushing for war with Russia, with US intelligence targeting Russian Generals for assassination (NYT). Instead support the following:

1) Lifting of sanctions for a Russian ceasefire and withdrawal of troops

2) Neutrality for Ukraine and no NATO expansion

3) Elections for self-governance in the Donbas (eastern Ukraine)

4) Return to the arms control agreements Trump abandoned with Russia 

We will also be tweeting to news anchors and comedians to urge them to feature diverse voices for peace in Ukraine.

There is no military solution to this conflict. The Biden administration must address the humanitarian crisis while pushing for a negotiated solution.

Below are articles that may provide talking points. We want to tweet, retweet each other, and engage on twitter threads with followers of the Biden Administration.

Interested? Email Marcy@CODEPINK.org for an assignment or grab talking points from some of the article below:
