Online Pamphlet Launch: Lies, Propaganda and the West’s War in Ukraine
October 5 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDTFree
If people really knew the truth, the war would stop tomorrow.’ So said British Prime Minister David Lloyd George to the editor of the Guardian during the First World War.
Chris Nineham’s new pamphlet about the Ukraine war shows how pro-war western governments are working hard to deceive their populations about the nature of the war and the reasons they are backing it.
Criticism of industrial-scale Russian disinformation is routine. But, by examining the build up to the conflict and comparing internal documents with public statements, the pamphlet exposes the lies and propaganda being used to sell to the public the biggest western military mobilisation in Europe since the Cold War.
Tune in to hear him talk about the issues covered in the pamphlet alongside Stop the War Co-Chair, Shelly Asquith.
