20-26 February 2023 global week of action

20-26 February 2023 global week of action

  • Peace for Ukraine, no to the Russian war! Immediate cessation of bombing by the Russian military and withdrawal of all Russian troops from Ukraine.

Ukrainian trade unions, self-help groups, feminist and left collectives, and the Ukrainian diaspora are calling for global support to Ukraine’s armed and unarmed resistance. Across Europe and on other continents, we will be demonstrating our solidarity with them, and demanding that our governments and civil society do more.

Russia’s supporters are calling for Ukrainian surrender, and for Russia to continue occupying the territory it has seized. Their slogan is “ceasefire first, talks later.” They are lobbying against sanctions and western military aid to Ukraine. All their efforts are to strengthen Russia and weaken Ukraine.

In Washington DC, Russia’s supporters and fake pacifists are mobilising for the Rage Against the War event on February 19th. Please consider signing this statement of the Ukraine Socialist Solidarity Campaign, an ENSU member.
Check out the arguments of Ukraine solidarity activists across Europe and North America. Don’t be fooled by fake pacifists and Putin supporters. Stand with Ukrainians at home and in the diaspora. Which way for peace?

The ENSU declaration is the basis for the main Brussels demonstration to mark the anniversary of the full scale invasion. This event is coorganised with the Ukrainian diaspora and a wide range of solidarity groups (more news in français, nederlands). Many solidarity groups in other countries have adapted our declaration for local mobilisation. For example, the Greek anti-authoritarian group Aftenergeia is calling for support to our joint week of action, using their modified version (Ελληνικά) of the ENSU declaration. There is still time for individuals and organisations to sign!
