People are being killed every day, aggression permeates the very air, we breathe. As long as they sell arms and gain outrageous, it’s inhumanely to talk about morality of military conflicts. Any war is just immoral act! We can and should be resist that. We protested to all wars around the world, going on under any pretexts. We stand up against hatred and making enemies. Together there’s much we can achieve!
There is a weekly program “Star Anti-Wars” in Radio GorodKudrovo broadcast. In the program artists, cultural figures, political scientists, government officials and other famous people take part in debates against the war, express the opposite views about necessity of armament or disarmament. The objectives of the program are the promotion of non-military ways all conflicts could be resolved, and the appeals for peace.
