War Or Peace?

We deplore Russia’s military aggression in the country of Ukraine, whilst we are aware of the multiple economic and political interests that paved the way for and that are driving the conflict.

Our priority is to stop the war, save human lives and avert an economic disaster whose price will inevitably be paid by the poorest and most vulnerable.

We want peace. And peace is achieved by means of dialogue and negotiation, not by fuelling a conflict with shipments of ammunition and troops. Human life is what has most value and there is no geopolitical or economic reason, no alleged war for freedom, that can be put before human beings.

Truly saving the Ukrainian people from disaster means silencing all weapons. This is why we denounce the irresponsibility of all the institutions that foment war by sending weapons to Ukraine: European governments, the United Kingdom, the US government, NATO, the European Union …

We beseech the UN to perform its role with conviction in order to uphold peace and global security.

We implore all governments not to aid and abet this war with money, soldiers or guns as this will only serve to make it bloodier and more prolonged, leading to even more death and suffering. We urge that sanctions which might make peoples’ lives worse not be imposed anywhere in the world.

We ask that the European Union contribute to peace, as stated in its founding treaty, and act as an independent interlocutor in this conflict. That it operates through diplomatic mediation and dialogue, taking into consideration the requests and concerns of both sides, to reach an agreement that leads to the cessation of hostilities.

The threat of nuclear war looms over us all, which can even break out in an accident. This is why we ask all governments to immediately adhere to the treaty for the prohibition of nuclear weapons, which entered into force on January 22, 2021.

Nuclear weapons must be dismantled now, later it would be too late.

We are angered by all those leaders who, despite having considerable economic and technological resources at their disposal, fail to create a fair and truly human society.

We do not wish to be accessories to such recklessness.

Let us assume responsibility for our future and invoke our loftiest aspirations, which link the hearts of all human beings, in order to change this destructive course of events.

Protest in all non-violent forms to achieve this: war is a disaster, let’s build peace.
