Motions

1. The Nordic Battle Groups

The NORDIC BATTLE GROUP is a European military structure which comprises bodies of troops from the armies of IRELAND, SWEDEN, FINLAND, NORWAY, ESTONIA, LATIVA LITHUANIA.

The Irish Anti-War Movement has voiced concern in the past that this battle is the beginning of a military project which will in the future be used to play a role on the world stage to complement the N.A.T.O.’s aggressive militarist policies and strategies. At the same time our involvement in this battle group is a continuation of the governments policy to compromise our neutrality by stealth.

This AGM should authorised a formal relationship and indeed close contacts be established with anti war groups in the above mentioned countries to develop close ties so that in the event this battle group goes into action in the future we will be to co-ordinate our response quickly.

Proposer: Steve Woods

2. Islamophobia

This AGM notes with concern the rise, under the guise of the war on ISIS, of islamophobia.  While Ireland, unlike Greece , France Germany or Britain, or France, has no fascist or openly racist party, this AGM resolves to continue to take the initiative in organising public meetings and mobilisations against any manifestations of  islamophobia as they occur, as it believes that no ground should be ceded, under whatever guise, to racists.

Charlie Hebdo – how should we respond?

Obviously anti-war and peace activists, progressives and radicals will condemn the horrible murder of journalists in France but do we need to say more? What role have imperialism, war and racism played in this atrocity? Are the 'world leaders' who gathered in Paris really defenders of freedom?
