DECLARATION Together we reject the new tests of M 51 nuclear missile in Brittany (machine translation) In the midst of a health crisis, the government insists on developing its new nuclear weapons programs to the detriment of health, social and environmental priorities. This obstinacy is expressed through a new campaign of tests of the Nuclear Missile M51 (1) organized, from 9 June and over several weeks, from the point of Penmarc’h in Brittany. These weapons of mass destruction, dangerous for … Continue reading →
The Ministry of the Armed Forces announced on 9 June the M51 missile launches: «The window of fire for these tests is scheduled between early June and mid-July», the ministry said. “There will be no detailed communication on these activities as operational activities and weapons systems testing related to nuclear deterrence are covered by defence secrecy,” the Ministry of the Armed Forces added. The Maritime Prefecture of the Atlantic has issued an order, “on the occasion of a test launch organized … Continue reading →

Newsletter of the campaigne “Stopp Air Base Ramstein”, Germany What we must think of Donald Trump’s announcements, we have known at least since his statements about withdrawing troops from Afghanistan and Syria. He’s lying through his teeth. But if he should ever take a right political step out of personal disgruntlement about Germany’s military spending, for reasons of revenge or for strategic orientation towards China, we welcome the withdrawal and celebrate it with a big party at Ramstein Air Base … Continue reading →
As an international network fighting against the biggest most destructive war machine in the world, we stand in solidarity with the protests taking place across your country demanding justice and peace and overturning a racist system that murders and criminalizes Black people.
We condemn the violent crackdown on demonstrators by militarized police, national guard, and other state forces. The use of tear gas, rubber bullets, live bullets, arrests and mass incarceration, threats of deportation, and dangerously violent tactics against legitimate non-violent protest outrages us.

According to the regional newspaper Ouest-France, the French army has planned missile testing between 9 and 11 June off the coast of Penmarc’h (Finistère/Brittany), like in 2016 or 2018. In spite of the global pandemic, France continues imperturbably to test weapons and swallow huge sums of money that will fail to meet the necessary budgets for health, education and the satisfaction of social needs. 1 missile “M 51” = 120 million euros, the gross salary of 7500 nurses. A French … Continue reading →

During the COVID-19 pandemic, not only will the U.S. military have the largest maritime military maneuvers in the world, with Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) coming to the waters off Hawaii August 17-31, 2020 bringing 26 nations, 25,000 military personnel, up to 50 ships and submarines and hundreds of aircraft in midst of a worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, but the U.S. Army is having a 6,000 person war game in June 2020 in Poland.

To counter NATO’s 70th anniversary celebration, I launched a monthly protest outside the NATO Asso-ciation of Canada (NAOC) in Toronto in January 2019.

Below extremely useful and important information from Dr. Horst Leps Hamburg Characteristic of the current military and security situation in the Baltic Sea, is not only the fact that the opposing parties (east and west) hardly speak with each other anymore, but that there are also no initiatives in this direction. The German Foreign Office in Berlin has supported the American RAND Corporation in a study “A New Approach to Conventional Arms Control in Europe” which has now been … Continue reading →
Unbelievable video of US military poisoning in Okinawa today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNctNl4z2-o
Massive carcinogenic PFAS Foam release from the Marine Corps Air Station Futenma.. There’s nothing the Okinawans can do to stop it. One teaspoon of this foam can poison a city’s drinking water reservoir. It genetically mutates living organisms and it never breaks down. It weakens immune systems during pandemics.

There will inevitably be other global challenges that countries will face together over time. However, NATO at seventy is not the instrument to address them.
by Jan Schaake (translation Kees Kalkman) The Amsterdam seminar on Euromilitarism Starting from a basal criticism of American imperialism that absorbs the EU member states by way of NATO, or rather from a concern about the American Alleingang and the unreliability as an ally under Trump, there is more and more a louder call to set up a European army and a separate European arms industry, so that ‘Europe’ can take care for its own safety. That call is sometimes … Continue reading →
Tony Osborne April 06, 2020 Aviation Week https://aviationweek.com/defense-space/budget-policy-operations/nato-activates-air-mobility-initiative-fight-covid-19 – A NATO initiative to speed up military reinforcement by air has been activated to support Europe’s battle against the novel coronavirus pandemic.
