Wes Flow, News Contributor

Author Medea Benjamin is giving a book talk tonight at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis to discuss the ongoing war in Ukraine.

Benjamin will be discussing her book, “War in Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict,” from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight. Benjamin also gave a talk today on the Oregon State University campus at noon, organized by the College of Liberal Arts.

Benjamin is a co-founder of CODEPINK, a women-led organization advocating against militarism, and Global Exchange, a fair-trade advocacy group. She is also the author of the books “Drone Warfare,” “Inside Iran” and “Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S.–Saudi Connection.”

The book was co-written by Benjamin and writer Nicholas J.S. Davies, author of “Blood On Our Hands: the American Invasion and Destruction of Iraq.”

The CODEPINK website describes the book as “Skillfully bringing together the historical record and current analysis, War in Ukraine looks at the events leading up to the conflict, surveys the different parties involved, and weighs the risks of escalation and opportunities for peace.”

Those interested in attending Benjamin’s book talk can RSVP on the CODEPINK website.
