Galway Alliance Against War 99 Red Balloon Peace Event 30 May 2009 12:00 Spanish Arch Galway

Galway Alliance Against War 99 RED BALLOON PEACE EVENT 30TH MAY 2009 AT 12 NOON SPANISH ARCH, GALWAY

 

GAAW welcomes the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Galway, but we deplore the invitation to the RAF’s Red Arrows. Neither the warplanes nor their pilots have any connection whatsoever with the unique character and culture of Galway or Ireland.  Their display is both a polluter of the environment and the international body politic. Tear away the 'glamour' that shrouds the planes and pilots and what you have is a recruiting sergeant for the British military and an apology for war, death and terror; what you have are pilots, who in their day jobs are trained to terrorise and kill people. Nearly every one of the pilots has seen combat in Iraq or Afghanistan.

 

 

Motions for Anti-War Movement AGM

A fully formatted version of All the motions before the AGM can be found at

http://www.irishantiwar.org/files/IAWM_Motions%20AGM%202009%20Final.pdf

1 IRAQ

The Irish Anti-War Movement calls on the United States to withdraw from Iraq without leaving any
residual forces in place.

Proposed: Julien Mercille IAWM Steering Committee

 

2 AFGHANISTAN

2.1 Motion 2.1: The IAWM notes with concern the escalation of the US-NATO occupation of Afghanistan.

The US’s decision to send 21,000 extra troops with possibly an additional 10,000 more next year, NATO’s
commitment of 58,000 troops in the region, a steeply rising overall death toll of more than 20,000 with over
50,000 injured, the obscene escalation of cost of the war in time of recession, the overspill of the war into
Pakistan, all these mean that we are experiencing an alarming new chapter in the war on terror. The new
US Administration, dashing the hopes of the international anti-war movement, have merely shifted the focus
from Iraq to Afghanistan, which has now become “Obama’s war”.
