On June 1, 2022, a national referendum will be held in Denmark, shamelessly exploiting Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, which violates international law, with the aim of enabling Denmark’s participation in EU militarization and achieving support for further rearmament to 2% GDP (gross domestic product).
The referendum is jointly supported by the government, the right and parts of the left opposition.
The network No to war Not o NATO supports the peace forces in Denmark in their NO to militarization and rearmament. More weapons never secure peace, but aggravate social conflicts in and around the world. More for weapons means less for climate justice. More weapons means more wars, more destruction, more suffering.
We say no to further rearmament.
We turn to the people of the country with the request: remain true to your own sovereign path. Rejects again, the participation in a militarized, imperial foreign policy of the EU.
Disarmament and a policy of common security, a new peace architecture in Europe involving all European states is the alternative to the militarization of EU-Europe.
