The activists chanted “no war on Russia” and “disband NATO” and carried banners saying the same.
Michael Bearman of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) told, “We’re demanding that the US pull all of their weapons from Ukraine, to stop the war provocation, but overall, most importantly, we’re calling for the abolishment and disbandment of NATO.”
The activists said they are sure that Russia is not the aggressor.
“In fact, Ukraine is not really the aggressor: it is the US and NATO, which is run by the US and has many junior partners within Europe, who are instigating war with Russia. They do not want Russia to have an independent path of development, they don’t want Russia to have an independent foreign policy,” the activist said.
