The votes on this resolution were sent to us by Bruce Gagnon, Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. This is a network to which WILPF belongs.

And it is a shocking vote. Only ten Republicans and 38 Democrats in the House said NO to arming Ukraine for war, be it civil or global. The US major media have labeled Putin and Russia as aggressors, but our own research tells a very different story. For Russia this is a Cuban nuclear missile crisis in reverse. You can read the WILPF Ukraine statement at http://wilpfus.org/news/updates/no-united-states-military-aid-ukraine . We chose not to name names in that statement, but for the background on the roles of leading neocons  (now supported by neoliberals)  check our sources at http://wilpfus.org/news/updates/defuse-nuclear-chicken-over-ukraine. Send your own sources, pro or con, to our WILPF Disarm list serve (if you are a committee member). Non-members may respond to Carol Urner at carol.disarm@gmail.com.

This vote deliberately undermines the Minsk ceasefire, negotiated by the Presidents of Ukraine, France and Russia and the German Chancellor and then unanimously approved by the UN Security Council. Though fragile it has continued to hold.

To communicate with your Representative go to her/his website and follow suggestions under Contact. Representatives take notice only of their own constituents. Communicate your own thoughts in your own words by phone or email. If we want people and our planet to survive this present nuclear age with our own nation devoted to endless wars, let us rise up as REAL PEOPLE (not computer generated ones) to build real relationships with those who claim to represent us.  From Carol Urner, co-chair WILPF Disarm/End Wars Issue Committee.
