Russia and the U.S. (along with the E.U. and NATO) have begun amassing troops in Eastern Europe as a Russian invasion of Ukraine appears increasingly imminent. The media frenzy around the rapidly escalating tensions between Russia and the U.S. gives dizzying and terrifying reports of arms deals, troop deployments, sanctions, and political standoffs. Will Russia invade the Ukraine? Why is this happening? What role does or has imperialism played? Who is to blame?
Unfortunately, the Left in the U.S. has been caught mostly flatfooted in its approach to this international crisis. While DSA and some left-wing members of congress have issued good statements in opposition to any escalation to this costly saber rattling, a much deeper and more widespread preparation of the U.S. and Russian working-classes is needed to prevent war and fight imperialism in their respective countries. What’s the role of socialists in the US? What demands could DSA use to help build an anti-war movement against war in Ukraine?
Join D3 this Thursday to learn about and discuss the Ukraine Crisis, how DSA can help build a strong anti-war movement, and how socialists in the U.S. should approach international solidarity. We’ll also be discussing the Joe Rogan controversy and whether socialists should support deplatoforming and the exciting Starbucks Workers Solidarity Campaign.
