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.

Eine Projektübersicht findet sich hier

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.

Mienenarbeit im Zeitalter des Terrors

Die Aluminiumindustrie nimmt eine lebenswichtige Position im militärischen-industriellen Komplex ein. Nachschubverbindungen zwischen den Mienenfirmen und den Waffenfirmen sind neben den Finanzinstituten, die in beide investieren, das Herzstück des Komplexes. Im Kontext, dass Staatengewalt, genau wie der Terrorismus, den “Kampf gegen den Terror” ins Auge fasst eskaliert es in einigen Ländern und schafft ein Klima, in dem zu Wenige die Waffenindustrie und ihre Rolle als Kriegsförderer hinterfragen.

During this past April, the 2008 Report on the global transfer of weapons was presented by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), an independent organization founded in 1966 to investigate the problems of peace and global conflicts, placing emphasis on limiting arms build-up and promoting disarmament. SIPRI has become a resource for the global pacifist movement.

In September every other year London's antimilitarist scene is dominated by DSEi - the Defence Defence Systems & Equipment International, the largest arms fair in Europe. One problem in organising such regular events is that it is virtually impossible to keep the numbers growing every time, and this year numbers were again down.

About the campaign

Chevron, the US Oil company, is embroiled in a lawsuit in the Ecuadorian Amazon, the roots of which date back over 40 years to Texaco's oil operations in the region. The suit alleges, in essence, that Texaco (now owned by Chevron), which produced oil in Ecuador from 1964 to 1990, caused the largest oil-related environmental catastrophe in the world. The region's soil and water are contaminated with toxic chemicals due to Texaco's completely inadequate waste management practices, implemented to save money and with the expectation that the company would never be taken to task for them.

About the campaign

Vedanta Resources, a British company, intends to dig an open-pit bauxite mine on Niyamgiri mountain in India. The Niyamgiri Hills are home to the more than 8,000 Dongria Kondh, whose lifestyle and religion have helped nurture the area’s dense forests and unusually rich wildlife.
The Dongria farm the hill slopes, grow crops in among the forest, and gather wild fruit, flowers and leaves for sale.
The mine will destroy the forests on which the Dongria Kondh depend and wreck the lives of thousands of other Kondh tribal people living in the area.

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.
