Protests Across Europe Oppose NATO and Sending More Arms to Ukraine

Protests Across Europe Oppose NATO and Sending More Arms to Ukraine

Fifty thousand people participate in anti-war rally in Berlin, February 25, 2023, which opposed sending arms to Ukraine.

In countries across Europe protests have taken place during January and February of this year, as well as in 2022, against NATO and against sending military weapons to Ukraine. This is often ignored when it comes to coverage of the war in Ukraine. The peoples of the world are speaking out. In Berlin some 50,000 people took to the streets on February 25 for example to oppose Germany sending arms and military materiel to Ukraine and demanding diplomatic initiatives and negotiation. Mass demonstrations also took place in Munich, Dresden and many other German cities against NATO and the EU on the occasion of the anniversary of the war.

These anti-war actions are taking place alongside large-scale protest marches against the intensification of the anti-social offensive which accompanies the increased spending on the U.S./NATO proxy war in Ukraine, sanctions against Russia and repressive measures.
