Inverness, Florida, March 7, 2022: Five antiwar demonstrators appeared in Inverness, Florida (Citrus County) last Saturday morning, March 5th, to protest the Ukraine-Russia conflict. They called for Diplomacy over War, and urged the United States to stop sending lethal weapons to Ukraine as gestures of support. They urged peaceful negotiations; stop NATO everywhere, and re-

move US nuclear arms stored in 5 countries in Europe.

Brian Moore said that the US actions are "provocative, reckless and dangerous," which could "lead to a war all over Europe, or even turn to a nuclear holocaust globally.”

The demonstrators estimated that between 500 and 1,000 cars and trucks passed by the 90-minute demonstration, on both sides of a four-lane highway intersection (State Road 44) in the heart of Inverness, Fla (11AM-12:45 PM).

They were pleasantly surprised with ratio of 2-1 or 3-1 of those who verbally or physically responded, the majority were supportive and agreed with the demonstrators messages; with 4-5 angry responses, comments and hand-gestures also.

Moore recollected that when they demonstrated against the Iraq War from 2002 through 2010, at the same location, as well as in nearby Pasco and Hernando counties, they and other demonstrators experienced the same familiar hostility and police surveillance, and expressions of “being unpatriotic,” until the real facts came out vindicating their efforts. He feels the "same will happen today" with regard to Ukraine and Russia, except that the consequences are "much more catastrophic to think of.”
