Last month, Calgarians held protests and fundraisers to support those affected by the Ukraine and Russia war.  On March 5, protesters gathered at Olympic Plaza to call on the Canadian government to implement a no-fly zone over Ukraine and aid them in the crisis.

Calgarians also came together to raise funds for those affected by war, including family and friends in Ukraine. All volunteer-based, they held fundraisers and markets to raise money to send back to Ukrainians.
