Sick and tired of the warmakers! - A statement by War Resisters' International o

05-04-2011 15:48

War Resisters' International - an international network of more than 80 antimilitarist groups in more than 40 countries - declares:

We are sick and tired of military interventions that shield behind false "humanitarian motives" - be that in Libya or elsewhere.
We are sick and tired of the logic of violence as a form of resolving social and political conflicts.
Yet once again we have to address these themes as if nothing has been learnt in the last hundred years.

We absolutely reject foreign military intervention in Libya, whatever the excuse.

We also reject the use of violence as a response to the multiple conflicts in Libya.

From the 1991GulfWar to the war on North Africa:On the true meaning of democracy

05-04-2011 13:31

Former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (1993-2007)
Initially, the U.S. effort against Qaddafi's Administration in Libya was termed a "humanitarian intervention" to protect the people. But, when since September 11, 1990 have U.S. troops been mobilized to innocently rescue civilians in danger?
