Petition: Call on our Congressional delegation to support a cease-fire and negotiations to end the war in Ukraine

January 10, 2023

Petition

We the undersigned call on our Congressional delegation to support a cease-fire and negotiations to end the war in Ukraine. The best way for the US to support Ukraine is by supporting negotiations..

By feeding a war that cannot be won by either side with weapons only prolongs the war, escalates its intensity and increases the death, destruction and suffering. Worse still there is a risk of a wider war and direct confrontation between the United States or a NATO country and Russia, which can lead to a much higher risk of a nuclear exchange.

It is clear that the U.S. and NATO have a great deal of influence over, if not defacto control of, this conflict as they are providing all the weapons and funding. The U.S. has been avoiding negotiations in hopes for a stingier hand, but it’s clear that is not going to happen. It’s time to end this thing while there still is a Ukraine and more productively direct our treasury toward the long-neglected needs of Americans.

      Good question … what do you think? Two of us are launching it on social media (Facebook). Suggest you circulate it to your contacts – ask for names, emails and ask those who want to sign to send you (or me) an email.. and we’ll add their name … given that it’s statewide, let’s focus on sending it to BOTH Hickenlooper and Bennet… Do you have any other ideas?

      Great … there are now four of us – of course the idea of how to use it is open ended but what I am thinking now is to get a respectable (undefined) amount of signatures and ask for a meeting with our two wondrous senators and present it to them – or something like that. VERY pleased you’re on board. Expect to be up in Boulder on Friday morning … Are you free – we (you, me, Nancy – any combination thereof – would be available I think around 9:45-10 am
