‘Thanks to Putin, NATO has found its purpose’ – Medea Benjamin slams Russian invasion of Ukraine (E1117)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin. She discusses how Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has strengthened NATO & given it purpose after embarrassment in Afghanistan, her concerns about sanctions against Russia hurting the working people, not just oligarchs, Russia’s assault as an “illegal invasion of a sovereign country,” the confiscation of $7 billion of Afghan Central Bank assets, the war in Yemen, and much more. Finally, we speak to Luckson Zvobgo, chapter scientist to and author of the 6th IPCC Assessment, Africa. He discusses the findings of the report and the closing window of time that the world has to fight climate change, climate change becoming a cause of a growing migration crisis, the role of technology in fighting the climate crisis, the effects of climate change on Africa, and much more.
