**It's Green and Red's 200th episode!! Excited to be wrapping up almost three years with you. It's the end of the year, so if you're thinking about donating to some fancy media outlet, perhaps reconsider and support our scrappy little grassroots media enterprise at https://bit.ly/DonateGandR.
On with the episode....
It's been almost ten months since Russia invaded Ukraine and NATO has turned it into a proxy war to destabilize Vladimir Putin. With no end in sight, tens of thousands have been killed, global economic instability and the possibility of a wider (and even nuclear) war between Russia and the West remains a threat.
Peace activist and author Medea Benjamin (@medeabenjamin) joins us to talk about the ongoing war in Ukraine and her new book " War in Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict," co-authored with Nicolas Davies. We discuss political dynamics around the war in the U.S., Europe and other parts of the globe. We also talk about the United States' long ongoing terror campaign against Cuba and the crisis in Peru.
This is definitely important listening. So please check it out.
Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of CODEPINK: Women for Peace and author of "Drone Warfare," "Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the US Saudi Connection" and "Inside Iran."
