Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone. First we resist. Then we build. Together, we rise.
Dear Friends, I am writing to remind you that activists from the UK will be actively involved in trying to nonviolently disrupt and disarm the UKs nuclear weapons at Faslane and Coulport in Scotland. It is important for us to start up the disarmament camps again and encourage more direct action in Scotland. We have been concentrating on Burghfield and Aldermaston in England but with the intransigence of Westminster we need to remind them that Scotland is against nuclear weapons … Continue reading →

Urgent Call to Action! No War on Syria! Defend the People of Syria! U.S. Out of Syria and the Middle East Now! Last night the U.S. military launched a massive air strike against Syria in violation of United Nations’ Charter, and without any authorization from the U.S. Congress. The pretext for the attack was the dubious allegation that the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun. This is a reckless and dangerous escalation on the part … Continue reading →

This appeal was agreed by the 2nd international preparatory meeting for actions against the NATO summit 24/25 May 2017 in Brussels.
Call for international actions against the NATO Summit, Brussels May 2017
Put people first, no to war!
This year’s NATO summit will be US President Donald Trump’s first. It will be held in May at NATO’s brand new headquarters in Brussels, a city that hosts both NATO and the European Union – two institutions that co-operate closely on their military policies.
NATO and its member states participate in illegal wars and military interventions, from Yugoslavia to Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Syria, the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean. They contribute massively to international instability, fuelling the arms race and militarization. NATO remains committed to humanity’s biggest threat: nuclear weapons.
From summit to summit, NATO perpetuates, enforces and extends its policy of war and domination. Continue reading →

Protest on 2017 January 20, U.S. Inauguration Day Donald Trump likes the spotlight.

The election of President Trump should throw Britain’s toxic relationship with the US into severe question says Chris Nineham
Written by Chris Nineham, Stop the War coalition UK on . Posted in News & Comment
The ‘special relationship’ between Britain and the US, announced by Winston Churchill soon after World War Two, has been toxic from the start. It is a collaboration that has always demanded unswerving support for US superpower aspirations. But the price keeps getting higher. Thatcher’s partnership with Ronald Reagan involved turning Britain into an offshore nuclear missile launchpad and provided a transatlantic power base for the neoliberal economics that has wreaked such havoc around the world. The Chilcot report made it official that Tony Blair’s ‘I will be with you whatever’ relationship with George Bush was a ‘determining factor’ in Britain’s lead role in the catastrophic war on Iraq.
On 20 January, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President of the USA.
The election of Donald Trump as US president means the most powerful office on Earth belongs to someone who promised to build a giant wall along the Mexican border, the expulsion of 11 million “illegal” immigrants and “extreme vetting” for Muslims entering the country.
Sign up to the protest on Facebook and invite your friends Join us to say Stop Trump’s Nuclear Arms Race on the day of the US President-elect’s inauguration. We’ll be outside the US Embassy in London on 20 January from 5pm. Protest: US Embassy London • from 5pm • 20 January 2017 The last few weeks have seen international tensions grow as US President-elect Donald Trump has made an alarming series of statements, the consequences of which could spell nuclear annihilation.

Its been nine Christmas and New Year’s holidays that we in Hawaii have been challenging policies of the Obama administration — beginning in December 2008 before President-elect Obama was sworn into office — on the issue of his silence on the 27-day Israeli attack on Gaza that killed 1,400 Palestinians.
Statement U.S. Peace Council, November 25, 2016 Executive Summary: Regarding the election victory of Donald Trump, the US Peace Council first of all salutes the massive demonstrations that call for improving workers’ lives, saving the environment, respecting women, opposing racism, supporting immigrants and rejecting Islamophobia. While much of what Trump said during the campaign and what he stands for is divisive and destructive, it is unlikely that a majority of Trump supporters voted based on Trump’s scapegoating statements. Many if … Continue reading →
Statement from United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC), USA
We stand in solidarity with all oppressed people under attack at home and abroad!
We urge full participation in the anti-Trump demonstrations!
In reaction to Donald Trump’s election victory, tens of thousands of people, most of them youth, have taken to the streets across the country in militant protests to condemn the racism, sexism, Islamophobia and anti-immigrant bigotry that Trump represents. Many are fearful, especially immigrants, Muslims and LGBT people. Their rage and that of their supporters signify the movement that needs to be built to end racism, wars and the attacks on working people endemic in the U.S. today.
German Foreign Policy 2016/11/16 WASHINGTON/BERLIN (Own report) – Under German pressure, the EU is pushing toward the establishment of military structures, independent of NATO, as is evidenced by recent decisions taken by its defense ministers.

While a majority of states have expressed support for developing a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons, fierce opposition to this resolution … Continue reading →
NATO is now, more than ever, a destabilizing war machine threatening peace and security in the world, not least because it continues with its first strike nuclear policy. This war machine is plundering the treasuries of member states, and is jointly responsible for the fact that millions of people are fleeing from war. The lucky survivors arrive in Europe and succeed in their applications for asylum – but increasingly often they do not even survive the Mediterranean crossing. In addition, … Continue reading →

As you know my country was partitioned by British Imperialism in the early 20th Century and the six counties of Northern Ireland has been part of NATO since its foundation which is one of the reasons why we strongly congratulate the N0-to NATO grouping in all its campaign activity.
However as you know since 2002 the Republic of Ireland ( the other 26 counties) has been a de facto US Airforce Base and has allowed well over 2.5 million US troops land in Shannon Airport as they take part in its Doctrine of Perpetual War.
PANA/IAWM/Shannonwatch has published a new pamphlet, ‘Shannon Airport and 21st Century War’.
Late last week the Obama administration released shockingly underreported numbers claiming that the U.S. government has caused only 64 to 116 civilian deaths by drone strikes. These numbers simply don’t add up. Independent organizations estimate that the number of civilian deaths is closer to 8 times that amount! Take action: Call on the Obama administration to release the names of the civilian drone strike victims as well as its methodology for determining who is a civilian. At CODEPINK, we agree … Continue reading →

As the Western alliance held a summit in Warsaw, Poland, Mr Gorbachev criticised Nato’s decision to deploy 4,000 more international troops in Eastern Europe.
