The event, which begins at 1 p.m., is being organized by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Nanaimo Branch and the Freedom From War Coalition, according to a news release.

The release stated the event will also call for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Ukraine.

“War has no victors, only death and destruction,” said spokesperson Dyane Brown. “Increased militarism only escalates the conflict. The threat of nuclear weapons makes efforts for real dialogue and compromise essential.”
