Information from the organisers
As NATO continues to escalate its proxy war against Russia in Ukraine, by sending tens of billions of pounds worth of weapons into the warzone, voices in support of peace, dialogue and negotiations are becoming increasingly censored and silenced by the Western mainstream media.
The Western media’s coverage of the conflict in Ukraine has been characterised by a narrow consensus of reporting, which significantly distorts and overlooks the geo-political and historical context, and largely ignores alternative voices. NATO’s moves to escalate the war are given unquestioning support.
Dissenting and critical views are smeared with governments and social media platforms banning many independent commentators and alternative media.
With NATO’s dangerous escalation threatening to prolong the war in Ukraine and increase the suffering of the Ukrainian people it is urgent that a balanced and objective public discussion on the path towards de-escalation and peace takes place.
