On May 24th and 25th, NATO leaders will be present in Brussels for an important NATO summit and for the inauguration of their new headquarters. Donald Trump, the President of the United States, has announced that new many billions will be spent on the military, and he urges Europe to do so too. The rise of defense budgets up to 2% of the Gross Domestic Product will undoubtedly be one of the most important topics on this summit meeting. We resist. We don’t want more money for war! We want investments in education, health, job creation and solidarity.
Together with international partners, the Belgian peace movement calls upon you to take part in a wide range of planned actions in order to show that these warmongers are not welcome.
We invite all organizations to support the initiative. How? By endorsing the call, by actively participating in its actions, and by providing some hard-needed financial support.
What are we planning?
