Peace & Justice Conversations: Is Russia truly our enemy?
Is Russia truly our enemy? Should we risk nuclear war?
Bruce Gagnon has been to Russia and Ukraine several times in the last couple of years including leading a delegation of 25 on a study tour of Russia in 2019. The purpose of the tour was to listen, learn, and stand against the constant demonization of Russia by the media across the west. The idea was to build people-to-people bridges between our nations rather than an escalating arms race which could bring us WW III. During the WW II Nazi invasion of the former Soviet Union 27 million citizens lost their lives from the fascist attacks and occupation. The memory of that war is deep in the consciousness of the Russian people to this day.
Bruce Gagnon is the Coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space which he co-founded in 1992. A few of his many projects and honors: State Coordinator of the Florida Coalition for Peace & Justice, writer featured by Project Censored twice, 2006 recipient of the Dr. Benjamin Spock Peacemaker Award, current host of a public access TV show called This Issue running in 17 Maine communities and is featured by artist Robert Shetterly in his collection of portraits and quotes entitled Americans Who Tell the Truth. He is an active member of Veterans for Peace.
