We also held a talk on 17 March by PN editor Milan Rai based on his post, ‘How the West paved the way for Russia’s nuclear threats over Ukraine’ (see pp15 – 17).
This was on top of an excellent PN Chat with our own Claire Poyner on 1 March, talking about her life and about the Network for Peace.
The PN YouTube channel is also hosting the video of a talk by US activist George Lakey on nonviolent response to aggression:
The talk, organised by a Quaker group in the US on 20 March, was based on George’s Waging Nonviolence article on Ukraine.
