Ukraine, one year of war. «The people under the boot of the Russian invasion»
(20-26/02) International week of actions for the one year of war — solidarity in Ukraine & against the Russian invasion February 24 marks one year since the total invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army. A year of bloodshed that continues to shock us all. We consider it crucial today to give a public space to the very people who have been at the centre of the war from the very first days, to give us a direct report on what is happening, breaking the chain of various false news stories that find the space to be reproduced. 4 different online projects are joining forces to organize this event, talking directly to the people from below!
Refugees will join us and discuss with us:
