THREE ON UKRAINE

VOLATILE UKRAINE
By The Activist Newsletter

Straight Talk on the US and Ukraine

Published on Friday, March 14, 2014 by Foreign Policy in Focus
Given the limits of its power and its own compromised relationship with international law, the U.S. isn't in a position to do much about Ukraine
by Stephen Zunes

For better or worse, the revolution in Ukraine was the work of Ukrainians, not Washington. The U.S. isn’t in a position to govern what happens next, nor should it be. (Sasha Maksymenko / Flickr)

Syria

September 2, 2013 Peace Action Maine is shocked and saddened by the use of poison gas against human beings. However, we are also shocked and saddened by the air strikes the United States is proposing against Syria. We issue this statement in response to both tragedies.

About Us

Peace Action Maine

Our Mission Statement: Peace Action Maine is a voice of education and a center for all people committed to disarmament and creative responses to conflict.

Peace Action Maine is a volunteer-led organization, the state affiliate of National Peace Action.

With more than 25 years of grassroots mobilizing to end war and occupation and to abolish nuclear weapons, this is an organization committed to non-violent conflict resolution and supporting community action for justice, a center of information for all who stand for peace.

Portland Vigils for Peace Participation is always welcome.

Wednesday, weekly from 12 to 1, Monument Square
The Wednesday noon to 1 vigil for a world without war, begun by area clergy in 2007, presently challenges our endless war against the people of Afghanistan and the push for war against Iran.

Women in Black vigil, every Friday from 5:00-5:30 at corner of Congress and High Street
part of the international movement that began in Israel in opposition to violence against Palestinians, we have been standing for ten years against violence of all kinds.

Events

July 16: RALLY SUPPORTING PALESTINIANS!

WEDS. Noon. Monument Square

With Israel likely to begin its land invasion at any time, we need to be out in force to express our anguish and anger and our support for Palestinians.

What this invasion will mean is abundantly clear by what Israel's "moral" army is already doing. 170 have already been killed, most of them civilians, at least 30 are children.

Sponsored by Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights, Peace Action Maine, Code Pink/Maine, Pax Christi/Maine, and perhaps others.
