May 2, 2019, will mark the 5th anniversary of the right-wing mob attack on the House of Trade Unions in Odessa, Ukraine. At least 42 people were murdered when the building was set on fire, with many more injured. This attack took place just months after the U.S-backed coup that brought a right-wing government to power in Ukraine.
Every May 2 since the massacre, the people of Odessa have braved fascist thugs to come out and memorialize those who died and demand an international investigation into the killings. And every year on May 2, people around the world hold actions in solidarity with Odessa.
The Odessa Solidarity Campaign was founded in 2016 after a group of U.S. antiwar activists traveled to Odessa to attend the 2nd anniversary memorial. Our purpose is to support the demand for an international investigation and to demand an end to the repression of the victims’ relatives and of journalists trying to uncover the truth about who was responsible for the massacre.
Join us on May 2 from noon to 1 pm in front of the Ukrainian Embassy as we remind the U.S. and Ukrainian governments that the world will never forget what happened five years ago. We demand Accountability and Justice!
