The demonstration at Ramstein Air Base last weekend was, we believe, the largest protest against drone warfare that has ever taken place in a Western country as well as the largest demonstration ever in the history of the decades-long protests against the US military base in Ramstein. This is a very exciting and hopeful moment for us all, and it was in large measure made possible by the inspiration of the US anti-drone movement and US resistors and whistleblowers. Thanks to all of you who have worked so effectively and faithfully on this issue for so many years!
- End the illegal drone war!
- The Air Base with its central command structures, including for nuclear war and missile defense, must gradually be closed down.
- The military jobs must be converted into civilian ones by means of a comprehensive conversion program.
- Germany’s involvement in wars of intervention must be ended, and all re-armament programs stopped.
The demonstrators also declared their solidarity with the refugees who have to come here because of the US and NATO wars.
