The American Ukrainian community appeals to the global community as a whole to show their support for Ukraine’s struggle for democracy by joining our March for Peace and against Russias’s aggression in Chicago on Sunday, April 27th, 2014 at 2 pm. We welcome all Ukrainians, Poles, Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, Slovenes, Slovaks, Czechs, Georgians, Hungarians, Romanians, Moldovans, Finns, and all people supporting peace and freedom. We will depart from NW corner of Millenium Park at 2 pm and walk to the Daley Center. We will begin assembling for the march at 1:30 pm.
Join us! Bring your families and friends, your national flags, and your support. United in solidarity we will stand together for a democratic and peaceful future for Ukraine, Europe, and the world. If you can’t join us, like our event to show support.
Ukrainians had hoped to put an end to the corruption by signing the Association Agreement with the EU thus reinforcing the rule of law. This effort was undermined by the corrupt Yanukovych government. The ensuing struggle back to a democratic future has brought violence and bloodshed, costing us more than 100 lives so far with possibly many more to be lost. Ukraine is on the brink of war again. Russia is using all its resources to destabilize our country and tear us apart prior to the elections on May 25th.
We, Ukrainians, seek independence, recognition of our sovereignty and borders, peace, economic prosperity, freedom, tolerance, dignity, and knowledge. We can only succeed if we challenge Putin’s disinformation war and Russia’s aggression which threatens stability and peace in Europe.
