A day after the escalation of violence in Ukraine, Vijay Prashad addressed the Belmarsh Tribunal in New York City to shine light on the crimes of war globally from the imperialist led wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Syria, to the ongoing scourge of hunger affecting millions across the world.

Vijay emphasized that peace is an urgent necessity and highlighted “War is never good for the poor. War is never good for workers. War itself is a crime, war produces crimes.”
