Eye-witness report on the Donbass region and Russia.
Our speaker, John Parker began his trip to the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine on April 27 as part of a fact-finding mission organized by Struggle-La Lucha newspaper in the U.S. to gather eyewitness observations and testimony of Lugansk residents. He also visited Russia, where he conducted interviews and was present at the May 9 Victory Day parade, commemorating the defeat of Nazi Germany and honoring the 27 million Soviet people who died fighting fascism.
John Parker is the coordinator of the Harriet Tubman Center For Social Justice In Los Angeles and a leading member of the Socialist Unity Party. He is also a member of Black Alliance for Peace and was a senatorial candidate on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket in the California primary election this June. John accompanied former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark on many anti-war delegations abroad. Parker was only 18 when he organized his first union election at a small steel plant in New Jersey. Having authored a $15 minimum wage ballot initiative in 2014, his organizing efforts helped to push the city to act on the minimum wage increase proposals in Los Angeles. He recently attended the inauguration of socialist President Xiomara Castro at the invitation of her Libre Party, due to his solidarity work with Honduras.
