ITALIAN CONVOY AGAINST WAR, FOR DISARMING AND PEACE

Posted by Abolition, 10th May 2007 | Category: Events
During the meeting of Bologna on April 15.2007 it was promoted a project: the “CONVOY AGAINST WAR , FOR PEACE AND DISARMING” that will start on May 19 2007 and will spread from the North-West, the North-East and from the South.

Aim of the “CONVOY” is to awaken public opinion and gather subjects that think to expand the present territorial conflicts on decisive points of a consistent peace engagement


1-clearance of all nuclear bombs and mass destruction weapons from the Italian territories dissociation and disobedience from every involvement with the atomic massacre machine;
2-opposition against every involvement of Italy in the global war and withdrawal of the troops from all war fronts;
3-for the closing, dismantling, reclaim and reconversion to civil purpose only of the USA and NATO military bases;
4-objection to military expenses, creation of an alternative defence model and of a Civil Peace Corps Force;
5-to affirm the peace values of art.num.11 of Italian Constitution that rejects war. To organize the social opposition to the political decision on rearmament and military interventionism of Government and to assert the sovereignty of the people.
The “CONVOY” will be in Rome up to June 2.when, instead of the military parades, it is necessary to remember the Constitution and its rejection of the war(art.11). June 2 must be given back to Civil Society to increase the value of Civil involvement for peace construction: we want Peace Embassies recognized by people , not “democracy” and “development” with bombs against people.
The “CONVOY” ,gathering different political-cultural worlds, reintroduces these military themes through a project of information and mobilization from the communities and the territories where the military bases are settled. It spreads fight instruments and activities that show the opinion and the will of citizens who believe in peace.
It must reintroduce mobilization against war and militarization in all social classes, at work, in schools, in districts and places of worship.
The “CONVOY” undertakes the POPULAR PETITION against the ITALY-USA agreement, that plans a new “anti-missile defence” on our territories, and stimulates local realities to set up committees to collect signatures.
