April 4 1949 – US Commanded NATO Military Alliance is founded
April 4 1967 – Dr. Martin Luther King condemns U.S. military aggression in Vietnam
April 4 1968 – Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King
April 4 is a key date to recall Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s famous condemnation of the U.S. as “The Greatest Purveyor of Violence in the World.” This April 4th, we ask: WHAT is the real function of NATO? WHY does NATO keep expanding? WHY is NATO the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today?
A Workers Assembly Against NATO raises the historic role of NATO as a U.S. weapon to push back the gains of the working class and impose Wall Street rule. Hear workers around the world define what is at stake in this war, including:
Leonid Ilderkin, Ukrainian communist in exile, member of coordination council of the Union of Political Refugees and Political Prisoners of Ukraine
Kristen Richardson Jordan, Harlem City Council member attacked by media for denouncing NATO’s criminal role in Ukraine
Ashaki Binta, Black Workers for Justice in North Carolina, labor activist and union organizer
Milos Raickovich, Serbian musician / composer and CUNY lecturer, who saw his country destroyed by 78 days of NATO bombing in 1999
Joe Piette, Retired US Postal Worker and US Air Force Vietnam war veteran
Larry Holmes, First Secretary of Workers World Party
And Sara Flounders & Teddie Kelly of the International Action Center

The fires of war have been lit in Ukraine. The U.S. corporate media fans the flames despite the best efforts of anti-war activists around the world attempt to extinguish them. Now President Biden has poured gasoline on an already volatile situation by issuing this ultimatum: there will either be sanctions or there will be nuclear war.
This threat means that, no matter what, the U.S. is hell-bent on making Ukrainians and Russians suffer. It means that the U.S. and NATO is holding all of Europe hostage in order to expand its military might on the continent.
Join the International Action Center for a lively discussion of why the Biden administration seems only to want to escalate this crisis and why we must must reject this arrogant and dangerous ultimatum to prevent the outbreak of another world war.
The anti-war movement must make it clear: the call for a “No-Fly Zone” is not a plea for peace, it is a declaration of nuclear war. The anti-war movement must also reiterate: Sanctions are not an alternative to war. Sanctions are war. They mean famine, disease, and displacement.
