Two weeks before the Warsaw NATO summit a demonstration against NATO took place in Prague, Czech Republic. The peace demonstration was organised by several peace organizations and the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia on Wenceslas Square in Prague city centre on Saturday 25 June 2016.
At the same time as the peoples throughout the world, and particularly in Europe, are demanding that they want Peace, in a climate of economic crisis and vicious austerity imposed by the governments of the European Union, thousands of children in the Middle East and Africa are dying in their attempts to reach a country that will offer them the bare minimum to survive and for a life with prospects, as well as many other children of their age. Imperialism’s machines are being reloaded to kill even more of these children. In this context.
JOIN HANDS ON JULY 9 TO PROTEST AGAINST
NATO SUMMIT IN WARSAW, POLAND!
STOP NATO'S AGGRESSIVE EXPANSION TOWARD RUSSIA!
An Urgent Appeal for a Joint Action
By the Peace and Antiwar Movement in the NY Metro Area
The drive by a nuclear-armed NATO to the borders of Russia — a nuclear-armed state — poses at the very least the risk of accidental nuclear war, and at worst the possibility of military confrontation between two nuclear powers.
On Saturday 11 June 2016 the peace assembly against NATO took place at the Municipality Hall of Prague. Event was organised under slogan of the World Peace Council´s campaign „YES TO PEACE! NO TO NATO!“ and was organised by the Czech Peace Movement and the Association of Soldiers against War and was supported by several peace organizations and initiatives.
