Please, take a quick moment now and tell your members of Congress that you expect them to stand up and fulfill their responsibilities by repealing the 2001 AUMF, and debating whether to authorize continued, endless war in Afghanistan. Here are six … Continue reading →

Britain must pressure Donald Trump over Korean peninsula crisis
The US Air Force Base at Ramstein, Germany, is a central pivot for preparing and executing wars of aggression violating international law.

US drone pilotes from a multitude of military bases use Ramstein for operating killer drones in illegal war missions around the world. In Ramstein itself, about 650 personnel continuously analyze, update and pass … Continue reading →

No new ideas or initiatives were mentioned by President Macron in reaction to the dramatic failures of past unfair commercial practices, notably in Africa or concerning his support for the Paris Accord on … Continue reading →

mailing ICAN 13.07.2017 Dear friends, Last week we banned nuclear weapons. It still feels a bit surreal to think that we pulled it off. But what does it all mean? Treaties and international law is sometimes a complex issue, and we’ve gotten a lot of questions about what the treaty does and how it will work. So we thought we collect the most common questions we get. What does the treaty prohibit? The treaty prohibits states from developing, testing, producing, manufacturing, … Continue reading →

One day after and some rest one may finally ask the question what did the summit achieve for whom politically? This is the attempt approaching the reality of the G20 summit. It will name the deeply undemocratic and aggressive behavior of the police, the impressive and courageous protest, and the outstanding demonstration of the 76,000 as well as the condemnable actions of the criminal mob. We will learn how many provocateurs were involved. An independent commission is highly needed. What … Continue reading →
