    European day of action against military infrastructure


    14 Nov 2008 - 15 Nov 2008

    War starts from Europe.

    14-15 November 2008: European day of action against military infrastructure.

    Europe is at war.

    The bombs are not falling in Europe. They are falling several thousands of km away in Iraq and Afghanistan. But still war is waged from Europe. Europe serves as a launch pad for military interventions worldwide. The frameworks differ: NATO, EU, US coalition of the willing, UN. The targets also vary: Iraq,Afghanistan, Lebanon, Chad, etc. But the departure points don't:military bases and civilian airports and harbours in Europe.

    Europe hosts a large military intervention machinery.

    The Iraq war made this very visible. The US and the UK waged war from their European bases. In 2003, there were 54,000 Europe-based US military personnel who were directly involved in the war against Iraq. For example, the US Army was deployed out of Germany and Italy., Bombing flights departed from UK bases and aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean. Marines were inserted into northern Iraq from Crete and Bulgaria. And this is still going on.

    (...)

    We call for a European day of nonviolent direct action against war on 14-15 November 2008.
