Dear friends for peace
As we agreed I forward this draft for an Ukrainian statement negotiated by participants at the Ukraine session at the Peace meeting in Warsaw 10th of July 2016.
Statement on Ukraine
We participants at the NATO Alternative Summit “No to War – No to Militarism – Yes to Refugees” are inspired by the reports from opponents of war in Ukraine. We demand an end of the systematic violations of human rights in Ukraine often directed against anti-war activists.There must be an end of the killing, sending to prison and silencing peace opnion by governmental or far right violence. We demand an end to selective defence of human rights and stress the need of addressing violations equally in any country.
We call especially upon support for civil society dialogue across the frontline in the Ukrainian conflict. This needs much more attention together with humaintarian aid efforts supporting all victims. Economic links and humanitarian contacts across the present-day frontline should be restored. War mongering interference of different kinds by foreign powers should be replaced by peace building!
Dear friends for peace,
As we agreed I forward this draft for a common declaration, where I tried to integrate nearly all of the suggestions that came up during today´s discussion. I did not find any adequat term to substitute “Truth”, which as it is used is not a philosophical term, but a scientific one the historians use all the time.
With many thanks for all your attention
in solidarity yours
Proposal for a DECLARATION OF WARSAW
For all of us, participants from 18 countries in the counter summit against NATO in Warsaw, it became clear throughout these last days that NATO beyond its interventionist and somehow neocolonial goals has the ambition to become also a political force ready to dominate not only the military, but also the political world order.
The undersigned therefore are taking up this new challenge by launching a CAMPAIN OF HISTORICAL TRUTH in order to counteract the historic lies of NATO by revealing
– that NATO lied when it promised the dismantling of its alliance together with the Warsaw-pact at the end of the cold war;
– that NATO lied when it presented and still presents the war in the Ukraine as a consquence of the territorial ambitions of Russia when in reality it had prepared already before, together with the European Union, to break the constitutional order using forces from the extreme right of Ukraine;
– that NATO lies when it presents the upsurge of Al Qaida and the so called “Islamic State” as a historical accident, when in reality these terrorist forces owe their existence to the historic crime of an interventionist war of the leading forces of NATO based on the lie that the Iraqi government disposed of weapons of mass destruction;
– that NATO lies when it presents their operations in the Mediterranean Sea implemented in alliance with the European Union as a war against human trafficking when in reality it is a war on refugees
All these facts and many others more should be revealed counteracting the biggest of all lies which is telling that NATO guarantees world wide security when in reality it has become the most destabilizing force threatening world peace and the existence of hundreds of millions through their waste of money and resources, like it has been shown during the NATO-summit in Warsaw.
Warsaw July 10th, 2016
