Like many Amsterdammers we are very worried by Putins decision to invade Ukraine with his Russian army. This is a brutal act of aggression in the heart of Europe. We are filled with horror by the many dead and wounded, destroyed buildings, people fleeing and people in bomb shelters. This war must stop immediately!
Many people are also worried about Putins decision to put his nuclear weapons on alert. The fact that nuclear war suddenly appears within the realm of possibility, frightens many people all over the world. It stresses the necessity to abolish nuclear weapons in the short term, starting with Europe.
Forty years ago, also in the Netherlands hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated against the threat of nuclear war. Now more than ever it is necessary to take to the streets again, against war and armament.
That is why:
Stop The War
Russian Troops Out Of Ukraine
Nuclear Free Europe
No New Arms Race
The Amsterdam initiative 'Stop de Oorlog' (Stop the war) consist of 8 local groups:
Democratisch Socialisten Amsterdam
