Program Title: Code Pink and the need for an anti-war solution in Ukraine
Description: This week on the show, Libby Davies speaks to Medea Benjamin, co-founder of women-led peace group Code Pink. Code Pink is a grassroots NGO with an anti-war mandate. The goal of Code Pink is to divest from the “war machine” and from companies that derive their profits from U.S. military interventions, the global arms trade, and the militarization in the streets.
Benjamin sits down with Davies to talk about the inception of the NGO back in 2002 and looking for a non-military solution to end Russia's occupation in Ukraine.
Benjamin says: “It is so difficult to cut through this incredible propaganda machine; now the call is we have to make sure Ukraine wins this war. As if there is any winning in this war.”
Our next Off the Hill is right around the corner: On Tuesday, June 7 at 7:30pm ET join us for Off the Hill: Hot summer in the West.
With the Alberta political scene in upheaval with the departure of the current (disgraced) premier and the increasingly vitriolic conservative leadership race federally, what can we expect to see unfold in Alberta, in Ottawa, what will the impact be on the political scene overall?
Join guests Rachel Snow, David Climenhaga, Chuka Ejeckam, Karl Nerenberg and co-hosts Robin Browne and Libby Davies as they connect these burning issues and knit together the connections, disconnections, challenges, and possible scenarios of unfolding current events.
