SEMINAR ON EUROPEAN MILITARISM IN AMSTERDAM April, 14th 2019 in Amsterdam
The Dutch committee Oorlog is Geen Oplossing (War is No Solution) and the anti-militarist research group VD AMOK together with the international Network No to War – No to NATO are inviting you to a seminar on European militarism Sunday April 14th in Amsterdam.
Place of the meeting:
1012 CZ Amsterdam
Tel: +31 20 627 62 95
Some weeks before the European Union Parlamentarian elections we want to discuss about a Europe in peace. This is more than the EU. We also want to analyze the actual policy of militarization of the EU.
In the seminar there will be three sessions:
1. On the way to a European army and the expansion of the EU to a global power
Speakers: Mark Akkerman (Stop Wapenhandel – Netherlands), Roger Cole (Peace and Neutrality Alliance – Ireland), Kathrin Vogler (MdB Die Linke – Germany).
2. The Atlantic counteroffensive
Speaker: Kees van der Pijl (University of Sussex – emeritus)
3. The action of the peace movement and the peaceful alternatives like an inclusive Europewide common security system.
Speakers: Tiny Kox (Senator Socialist Party Netherlands), Kees Nieuwerth (Dutch Quakers)
It would be great when you could attend the peace weekend in the Netherlands and take part in the debate. We will try to make some hotel arrangements in the neighbourhood and offer possibilities to stay at private adresses if needed.
These pages are mainly in Dutch but please take notice of messages in English there.
When you are interested, send an email to and we keep you posted.
