Kampagnen: Globale Initiative gegen Kriegsprofiteure

Dies ist die Indexseite der Globalen Initiative gegen Kriegsprofiteure. Für AntimilitaristInnen ist am Krieg zu verdienen nicht nur deshalb falsch, weil es sich um Profit handelt, meistens für private Unternehmen, sondern auch weil es sich dabei auch um eine der Ursachen von Krieg handelt. Diese Seite ist ein Index einiger Online-Ressourcen zur Kampagne, und nicht eine umfangreiche Beschreibung der Kampagne.

WRI statement on the Global Day of Action on Military Spending

On 15 April there were more than 120 actions worldwide as part of the Global Day of Action on Military Spending, an initiative coordinated by the International Peace Bureau (IPB). The day of action coincided with the annual release of SIPRI's figures on military spending. According to SIPRI, in the last year there was a slight decrease (0.5%) of the world military expenditure. However, China - the second largest spender in 2012 - increased its expenditure by 7.8 per cent ($11.5 billion). Russia - the third largest spender - increased its expenditure by 16 per cent ($12.3 billion). Annual world military spending continues at around $1.5 trillion dollars.

Anna und ich versteckten uns in den Büschen bei Saab Bofors Dynamics in Eskilstuna. Ich flüsterte ihr zu: „Siehst du irgendwen?“ Nein, sie sah keinen und ich auch nicht. Die Luft war rein. Wir hatten den Zaun aufgebrochen, der diese Waffenschmiede umgab. Wir waren bereit, in die Fabrik einzubrechen, in der Granatwerfer hergestellt werden. Es war zwei Uhr am Morgen des 16. Oktober 2008.

With all the talk about the financial crisis, the world of war profiteering seems to be business as usual. Deals continue to take place at deadly arms fairs as we report in this issue. I would like to thanks Martin Parr and Magnum Photos for sharing with us the strong images from the arms fair in Abu Dhabi. There are other fairs taking place this year as we also announce – ITEC and DSEI – organisations are already making plans on how to disrupt these events, so please get in touch with them if you want to join in.

The new arms race in space is shaping up to be the largest industrial project in Earth's history. To pay for this project, the aerospace industry has been lobbying Washington for a dedicated funding source. Budget allocations for missile defense — Star Wars — are only part of the huge sums of money redirected toward preparations for war in space.

What do babies and arms sales have in common? Surprisingly, Clarion Events who organise the Baby Show also own and organise Defence Systems and Equipment International (DSEi), the world's largest arms fair, scheduled for September 2009 in London.

Over the weekend anti-arms trade protesters demonstrated outside London's ExCel Centre, venue for both exhibitions. The protest was both against Clarion and the ExCel Centre for agreeing to host the event.

Martin Smedjeback. Profesor de No Violencia. Suecia

La noche del 16 de octubre desarmé armas destinadas a ser exportadas. Entré en la fábrica de Saab Bofors Dynamics en la ciudad de Eskilstuna (Suecia) y con un martillo corriente golpeé 20 lanzagranadas "Carl Gustav". Lo hice como miembro activo de la red "OFOG". Es probable que por
esta acción mis amigos y yo seamos sentenciados a varios meses de prisión. Pero los crímenes que estamos combatiendo deberían ser castigados mucho más severamente.
