Philadelphia Anti-War Mobilizing Against Threat of US War with Russia

Thus far there were two events in Philadelphia on February 5 to oppose the threat of US war with Russia in the Ukraine at the Federal Court house organized by the Brandywine Peace Community and a later one at the Entrance to Ben Franklin Bridge by Peace, Justice, Sustainability NOW.

There are also have been meetings to discuss a follow up plan.  According to Philadelphia anti war organizer Joe Piette: “We will push for a rally on Friday Feb 11 or Sat. Feb 12, depending on war situation then. There is also a day-after emergency protest plan if war breaks out at any point before then .”

Here are some photos by Joe from the first protest which included a march around the Liberty Bell pavillion.


 

Proposed Action Plan

The following are some suggested steps:

Initial Launch Discussions  Discussions can be in person and via zoom, etc.

Draft Statement of unity against US war and preparation for war including provision of weapons and troops to the Ukraine,

Mobilization at car caravan and rallies at US Senator and Represenatives offices opposing US war on Russia.

Issue Responses to events as they occur and escalate.

Create Network of organizations and individuals dedicated to joining this fight.

Staff with volunteers and ideally stipended staff to continue forward opposition to war.

Potential Organizational and Individual Resources

Approach and engage the organizations in Philly and Southern NJ area to participate.

Funding

Critical to the success of this effort will be staffing a fully supported effort .  While we can likely sustain an initial action without a significant budget – to continue forward we might want to consider some sort of fundraising efforts to sustain expenses for one or more staff to coordinate moving the effort forward.
