The Dutch committee Oorlog is Geen Oplossing (War is No Solution) and the antimilitarist researchgroup VD AMOK in Utrecht together with the Network No to War – No to NATO are inviting you to a seminar on European militarism Sunday April 14th in Amsterdam.

Some weeks before the European Union Parlamentarian elections we want to discuss about a Europe in peace. This is more than the EU. We also want to analyze the actual policy of militarization of the EU.

In the seminar there will be three sessions:

  1. On the way to a European army and the expansion of the EU to a global power
  2. The Atlantic counteroffensive
  3. The action of the peace movement and the peaceful alternatives like an inclusive Europewide common security system.

The seminar will take place the day after an international day of peace on Saturday April 13th in Amsterdam which is mainly organized by the Socialist Party of the Netherlands, but also supported by the international Network and Dutch peace groups. In this meeting there also will be a session with international guests. The broader context of the event will be international solidarity, struggle against arms trade and the European army. There will be parliamentary speakers of the SP and speakers from Kurdish, Palestine and Moroccon social movements.

A more detailed program for the seminar on Sunday with speakers will be sent to you as soon as it is available.

It would be great when you could attend the peace weekend in the Netherlands and take part in the debate. We will try to make some hotel arrangements in the neighbourhood and offer possibilities to stay at private adresses if needed.

More information will be published on and
