Stop the War in Ukraine – 1 Year On – National Demonstration

Facebook event

**Assemble at BBC, Portland Place, W1A 1AA at 12 Noon. Marching to Trafalgar Square.**

At the end of February it will be one year since Russia invaded Ukraine. As with all wars millions of ordinary people have suffered, vast numbers of refugees have been displaced and thousands of troops on both sides have been killed. Clearly the longer the war goes on the more suffering will occur. Rather than sending more arms and weaponry to Ukraine, as the US and its allies are doing, ending the war will only be achieved through peace talks and diplomacy. In the absence of negotiation the danger of escalation, possibly nuclear escalation, is very real. This is why we demand peace talks now.

Stop the War has opposed the invasion and the war since it began. To mark this dreadful one year anniversary we have called a national demonstration in central London for Saturday 25 February. Please join us and make our demands heard: stop the war in Ukraine – peace talks now!

Speakers at the demo will include:

Tariq Ali, Writer & Activist
Brian Eno, Stop the War President & Musician
Sevim DaÄźdelen, German MP (Die Linke)
Lowkey, Stop the War Patron & Musician
Riccardo LaTorre, FBU National Officer
Lindsey German, Stop the War Convenor
Tom Unterrainer, CND Chair
Mohhamad Asif, Afghan Human Rights Foundation

More TBA! Please keep inviting friends and spreading the word in your communities and workplaces.
