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.

It has a been busy times for the movement against war profiteering as you will read in this edition of WPN. We congratulate the work done by CAAT and The Corner House, with their court victory that ruled that the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) acted unlawfully when he stopped a corruption investigation into BAE Systems' arms deals with Saudi Arabia. At the same time the fact that a documentary exposing the arms trade was censored in the UK shows the level of impact that the Smash EDO Campaign has had.

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.
