Supporting the Troops Who Refuse to Fight

We’re a group of concerned community members, veterans and military families who support military objectors to illegal war and occupation and the policies of empire. Our People Power strategy weakens the pillars that maintain war and occupation in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere by supporting GI resistance, counter-recruitment and draft resistance, which cuts off the supply of troops. We are autonomous from and independent of any political organization or party.

So i went to the "source" on twitter, a 27 second video with no context and a bunch of rando comments. Still waiting for verification this isnt some sort of fake "Ukraine is winning, Russia is losing" propaganda.

indeed together we shall overcome!!!!

I am interested in the context of this no sound video. Can't wait to see confirmed reports because so far the articles I have read on this supposed mutiny just appear to be pro ukranian spin

Looks like things are not hunky-dory in the Red Army!
