NATO is arming itself to attack peoples of the world
In the last May 20 and 21, NATO, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, held its summit meeting of heads of states. These days were accompanied by manifestations in several parts of the world. Thousands of people went to the streets in Chicago, Lisbon and Athens demanding the dismantling of which is the main imperialist war machine and repudiating his belligerent climb in the Middle East. In statements, the member organizations of the World Peace Council (WPC) reaffirmed the requirement of the end of all foreign military bases and NATO installations worldwide.
NATO is a military offensive structure, responsible since its creation for uncountable crimes against humanity like recent aggressions against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Imperialism has promoted with its monstrous war machine, the deepening of international relations militarization, assaulting peoples and nations, and leaving where it pass wreckers and rivers of blood with the only objective of imposing its domain and plunder natural resources.
Since its last summit in Portugal, NATO has broadened its goals, defining its area of acting all regions throughout the world and it has extended the range of false pretexts to justify its wars. It does that using corollaries like “war against terror”, “no proliferation” and defense of “human rights” with weak excuses to assault peoples and invade sovereign nations. It uses these arguments to justify their high military spent in spite of deep economic, financial and social crisis which the countries members of NATO are living. We denounce that NATO maintains a huge military budget which overcomes 70% of all military spent of the planet. It happens at the cost of squeeze policies against workers, especially from the USA and Europe.
In a moment of serious economic crisis, imperialism doesn’t hesitate in use the force to take possession of new sources of strategic resources, and control routes and commercial flux. In this sense, we denounce the trying of militarization in the South Atlantic with the Fourth Fleet of USA, the installation of military bases in the continent and the presence of old English colonialism in Malvinas Island. We denounce also the growing of menaces and aggressions in the Middle East, underling the provocations to Syrian and Iran.
We reaffirm that the struggle for dismantling NATO will be one of the central themes in debates and actions of WCP, which will meet in World Assembly between July 20 and 23 in Katmandu, Nepal. It will be a great event in defense of peace, international solidarity and the right of peoples’ sovereign.
