Call for peace

“We condemn the illegal Russian invasion of Ukraine. We are fully aware of NATO’s co-responsibility for this long-term conflict as one of many examples of violations of international law. At the same time, we are affected by the impact this war and all wars have on societies – from injuries and deaths to the long-term deprivation that affects women who provide vital care even in times of war, struggling for livelihoods and peace despite human rights violations. It destroys the environment and infrastructure, causes food and energy prices to rise around the world, exacerbates poverty and hunger – especially in the global South – and threatens the entire world with nuclear war.” (excerpt from the “Call for Peace”)

Why Vienna?

Austria is a neutral country. It is a “UN City” and the seat of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Secretariat, which has been monitoring the situation in the Donbass since the signing of the Minsk II agreement.

Why we are participating in the Peace Summit:

It is the responsibility of peace movements around the world and all peace-loving peoples to strengthen these efforts. The Vienna Peace Summit in Ukraine can be a strong sign of hope and a catalyst for more and stronger peace actions worldwide.
