On November 4, the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute hosted an online discussion with me and CodePink co-founder, Medea Benjamin, about the paths to peace in the Ukraine war.
I argued that the West’s approach to the Ukraine war should be based on reality, and that Western governments continue to ignore the reality that NATO provoked this war and that Ukraine cannot win it. The humane and rational approach to this war would be for both Ukraine and Russia to seek a negotiated resolution, and a negotiated resolution will require meaningful compromises by both sides.
In the Q&A part of our discussion, we also discussed the possibility of creating a new political party in Canada that would be truly committed to peace and anti-imperialism.
