Virtualization: Hybrid conference with additional zoom participation

Initialized by Stopp Air Base Ramstein, with participation and support from:

  • European Left
  • International Peace Bureau
  • No to war – no to NATO

The Campaign „Stopp Air Base Ramstein“ (www.ramstein-kampagne.eu) invites you to the 4th international congress against military bases and wars.

We will discuss about the international political situation and how to enlarge our struggle against war machinery and warfare. A focus should be the discussion about the protection of the environment and how military bases, war machinery and wars are destroying the environment and the climate.

Key points of the international conference will be:

  • the actual political situation and relevance of military bases and presence of war machinery in conflict regions worldwide
  • what to do to come back to an international policy of cooperation
  • exchange of information about the actions against military bases in different countries in the world
  • analysis of social movements worldwide for cooperation in our struggle for disarmament
  • coordination for future common actions, specially how to strengthen the international Anti Bases network

Corona changes many things including the structure and the arrangement of our congress. It will be a hybrid meeting with physical presence and video participation (details see last page).

We hope you can attend the conference personally in Berlin. All security needs demanded from the authorities will be handled by us.
