I want to scream. Instead I will curse him. Here is #antiwar movement that has failed humanity. This drug addled bastard got up in front of world not to speak for victims, but as voice of violence and cruelty. This is face of complicity. I curse him
@rogerwaters did not stand up and be voice for our stolen children Russia has trafficked. Instead he argued Russia was provoked into trafficking them. I curse him.…
@rogerwaters did not stand up behalf of nation of rape victims because Russia uses rape as tool of war, giving STIs to children and discarding them like garbage. Rape of child and women she is thrown on is provoked his says. I curse him. Image

Don't trust those telling you that everyone in Russia supports the war - there are quite a few movements against the war.

Stop the war in #Ukraine!

Not since October 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, has the world come so close to nuclear war as today. 👇

Please share this 🧵

It is not necessary to glorify the Stalinist leader Nikita Khrushchev, let alone the imperialist president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, to recognize that there is a glaring difference between the reaction to that crisis and the one gripping the world today.
In a recently-published book on the Cuban Missile Crisis, Nuclear Folly, historian Serhii Plokhy writes that, “The crisis did not develop into a shooting war because Kennedy and Khrushchev both feared nuclear weapons and dreaded the very idea of their use.”

The Assange case is ultimately about whether we have the right to know what the institution we call our government is doing. It’s a case about democracy, transparency and accountability. The US knows that if ordinary Americans were fully aware, it would threaten the whole system.
It’s a system whose name has been repeated so often that it’s become boring to us: the military-industrial complex. Eisenhower knew whereof he spoke, and he understood the spiritual aspect of the military-industrial complex’s malign influence on civic life. For a free, democratic
…society to be possible, we have to be able to see what our government is doing. That’s what the Assange case means, the right for the truth to be known—not sucked into the memory hole, so that nothing ever changes. #FreeAssangeNOW #FreeJulianAssange #FreeAssange #AntiWar

"When you push against a system and it is an unjust system, you must prepare yourself mentally for the isolation and resistance that comes with that. Activism and whistleblowing looks sexy on TV, but it’s hard on your mind and wellbeing." --Dr. Monica Cox…

What I do not get is how the #Left, usually #AntiWar, is supporting #Ukrainian case and war efforts.
In #IraqWar the left played important role yet little was achieved.

The #WarInDonbas was a miss.

The Saudi Arabian–led intervention in #Yemen was totally ignored.

The #Palestine issue keeps going yet not many protests get publicity.

The Russo-Ukrainian conflict/war?
Part 2/2
...First protests were massive. Now?

Two issues:

- The #AntiWar movement demands stop of military operations by RU forces.

- Not many voices speak for stopping all use of military force.

The US gvm't says the population is “united” behind its war drive. This is a lie!

Here’s how US workers & youth really feel about the US/NATO drive to World War 3 & Putin's invasion.

RT, tag friends & add your voice! Post your video/pic & use #SpeakOutAgainstWW3!

1/ Image
In the hours and days ahead the WSWS will be posting statements against war from workers & young people across the US. #antiwar sentiment is censored from the corporate media. Post yr statement to show the world that the US population does not want war! #SpeakOutAgainstWW3

Liz, a nurse from LA says: "All working class people from the US must unite w/ our Ukrainian and Russian brothers & sisters. We have to build a working class #antiwar movement because this drive to war w/ Russia is a very dangerous policy. They are taking us to the edge."

What happened to the #antiwar movement?

The newspaper columnists, the pundits, and other affluent sections of the upper-middle class have been enriched by the share bubble after 2008-2009 (blue).

Wages and income for workers stagnated (red and green). 1/
The top 10 percent of society has been conditioned with what Orwell called "ribbons and sugar." The more the bombs fall, the more the workers are impoverished, the wealthier the upper-middle-class got.
The movement against #war will be the movement of the working class.2/

The @TulsiGabbard phenomenon as a diagnostic tool
"The putatively “liberal” legacy Ziomedia hates Tulsi with a passion. Maybe not as much as that legacy Ziomedia hates Trump or Putin, but still – the levels of hostility against her are truly amazing."…
Rep. @TulsiGabbard has been pretty consistent on #antiwar, anti-#RegimeChange #ForeignPolicy issues, since before she became a Congresswoman.👇

How many of the novels in #pbsgreatamericanread #GreatReadPBS are for #peace #antiwar? Here's the ones I know or hope are:

1) 1984 by George Orwell
2) A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
3) Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Others can be read to contain anti-war messages

Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya
Dune (esp later books in the series) by Frank Herbert
Game of Thrones series by George RR Martin
Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
War & Peace by Tolstoy
I haven't read all of them. I expect Vonnegut's "The Sirens of Titan" to be anti-war.

On the flip side, The Left Behind series is fanatically sectarian hate speech celebrating mass killing. One wonders if PBS would have allowed Mein Kampf or The Turner Diaries to make the list.
