Description: Now that Russian troops, over three weeks after their invasion, have stepped up their terror against the people of Ukraine by increasing attacks on civilian targets, several different approaches concerning how to understand and respond to the crisis have crystalized in the international Left. At this meeting, we will elaborate and discuss what a humanist and Marxist response to this crisis could be. We will have several presentations from leading scholars and activists, and also a report from inside Ukraine.
