Baltimore's People Powered Peace Movement Says No to NATO War!

A large coalition joined with Baltimore’s Peoples Power Assembly (on Facebook) to energize the Baltimore anti-war movement in opposition to US war on Russia over the Ukraine.

The event included 3 parts, a protest followed by a car caravan and then a final rally through the streets of Baltimore Maryland.

They demanded:

No U.S./NATO war on Russia & Donbass.
Fight Evictions, COVID, & Poverty, not Russia.
We need money for healthcare, jobs & housing,
not for war profiteers and banks and big oil profits!

The following is a partial list of the participating organizations:
Peoples Power Assembly; Youth Against War & Racism: Baltimore Peace Action , Maryland Peace Action; Ujima People’s Progress Party; Baltimore Black Alliance for Peace; Baltimore CPUSA; Palestine Youth Movement – DMV; Phil Berrigan Memorial Chapter Veterans For Peace; Struggle La Lucha News; Socialist Unity Party; Rev. Annie Chambers, Baltimore Welfare Rights Organization; Women In Struggle; Katarungan DC; Friends of Latin America.

Here is an excellent write up of this event from Fight Back! News.

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 area of Baltimore and throughout Maryland  stressing the need for unity to act against the possible pending disaster of US war with Russia.

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.
