November 19 2022 MANHATTAN, New York – Dozens of people were stationed outside People’s Forum in yellow vests, for Saturday event on Ukraine, without any Ukrainian speakers present on their list. Just outside, about 7 Ukraine supporters were protesting, quietly holding signs. One Ukrainian attendee who said he did RSVP for event, was not allowed inside, according to the said attendee.
Speakers at the event included figures such as Jill Stein, an American physician, activist, and former political candidate and Jeremy Corbyn, British politician who served as Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Labour Party from 2015 to 2020.
The People’s Forum event was advertised to advocate for the end to the current war in Ukraine by “Peace”. However Ukrainian supporters are concerned over their demand that Ukraine surrenders and lack of demands for Russia to end their aggression, or mention of the genocide.
“They are hosting the events which is designed to tell Ukraine to surrender and advocate for Russia success ” – said protesters standing outside the event.
“I’m an American and I don’t like bullies, I think Ukraine should win”
Protesters outside of People’s Forum “The Real Path to Peace in Ukraine” event, speakers of which protesters say generally call for Ukraine to surrender to Russia – speak on the Russian propaganda claim of ‘denazification’
