World Beyond War Presents a program on peace in Ukraine, including the link to Palestine/ The Crossing, 1127 University Avenue, Madison 6-9 pm Panelists: Andrew Kydd – UW-Madison Professor of Political Science: “I am in favor of US support for Ukraine’s war effort against Russia.” David Swanson – World BEYOND War International Director: “When you're deep in a hole the first thing to do is stop killing people.” Samer Alatout - UW-Madison Professor of Community & Environmental Sociology: “The war on Ukraine cannot be understood in isolation, it is one node in wars over the details of a new world order. The same thing can be said about the war on Palestine. They are inseparable, they fit the same narrative.” After the panel, there will be food, drinks, and a pro-peace art showcase of stirring music and poetry. Taiko drummers, Mennonite acapella singers, poets, and piano, fiddle and horn players will perform on the theme "Peace Through Empathy." More information here. ACTION ALERTS!
