CODEPINK, Veterans for Peace, Four Lakes Greens, and our anti-war allies will rally on February 5, 2022 at noon on the Capital Square near State Street to demand an end to the drumbeat of war with Russia over Ukraine. We protest and resist the normalization of war and demand that not a single bullet or gun be sent to Ukraine. No New Troops or Arms to Eastern Europe! Diplomacy not war.


After gathering at the Capitol, participants will cross the street for a picket outside Senator Tammy Baldwin’s office at 30 W Mifflin to demand she and other WI representatives oppose the bill to send $500M in weapons to Ukraine, and to protest her support for basing F-35 fighter jets in Madison.

[Veterans for Peace dos not support any party.]


No War Rally – Milwaukee – Sat at Noon  

“More than 100 national and regional U.S. organizations released a joint statement Tuesday urging President Biden “to end the U.S. role in escalating the extremely dangerous tensions with Russia over Ukraine.” The groups said “it is gravely irresponsible for the president to participate in brinkmanship between two nations that possess 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons.”

The statement warned that the current crisis “could easily spiral out of control to the point of pushing the world to the precipice of nuclear war.”

Madison 365: “Hers was a life well-lived.” Dorothy “Dot” Williams Remembered

“Whenever I was in the presence of Dot Williams, I felt welcomed. She invited us
into her home with love and happiness. Her food was good, her conversations
were engaging and she was truly a gem in the Black community,” says Betty Banks, a lifelong Madisonian and executive director of Today Not Tomorrow, Inc. (Club TNT). “Dot loved her family and her community. She supported the work that we did and we were
appreciative. Hers was a life well-lived. She will be missed.”

Dorothy “Dot” Williams, a matriarch in the Madison community for more than five decades, passed away peacefully on the morning of Jan. 15 at the age of 89. Living a good portion of her life in the segregated Deep South, Williams has spent the last five and a half decades in Madison, where she was well-known for her kindness and generosity, along with her activism and empathy, and she made an impression on many.

“She died on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. I thought about how appropriate that was. It was the day he was born and the day God took Dot,” husband Will Williams tells Madison365.

Williams says that his wife “just loved people.”

“She had her own ways; a lot of people may not have understood her, but everything that she did was out of love,” he says.

“She did a lot of things under the radar that people didn’t know. She used to cook a lot for fundraisers for MAPC [Madison Area Peace Coalition] and for Club TNT’s [annual Waterbearer] Awards Ceremony. She would do all of the food and she was a great cook. She would do anything for people,” Williams continues. “Sometimes people would pass away and even if she didn’t really know them, she would prepare food for them and their families. It was just her way.”

“I hope that people in Madison and beyond remember her as a sweet and caring person that would go out of her way to help people.”
