Excerpts from the YouTube transcript, edited by Rise Up Times editor Sue Ann Martinson.

What do the voiceless Millions have to say?

They say thank you for hearing us today. We are many who do not share in the profits of the War Industry; we do not willingly raise our sons and daughters to provide fodder for your canons. In our opinion the only sensible course of action today is to call for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine: no ifs, no buts  no ands, not one more Ukrainian or Russian life is to be spent. Not one. They are all precious in our eyes.

The time has come to speak truth to power. We demand change.

President Biden President Putin, President Zalensky, USA NATO, Russia, The EU, [China]

All of you please change course now; agree to a ceasefire in Ukraine today.

Imagine the collective Global sigh of relief, the outpouring of Joy, the international joining of voices in Harmony singing an Anthem to peace….

We’ve finally been heard in the the corridors of power. The bullies in the schoolyard have agreed to stop playing nuclear chicken. We’re not all going to die in a Nuclear Holocaust after all, at least not today. The powers that be have been persuaded to drop the arms race and Perpetual War as their accepted modus operandum.

We can stop squandering all our precious resources on War: we can feed our children, we can keep them warm. We may even learn to cooperate with all our brothers and sisters and even save our beautiful planet home from destruction.

Wouldn’t that be nice Your Excellencies?
