Wie geht es weiter nach der Entscheidung des Europäischen Gerichtshofes?

von Rudi Friedrich

Am 26. Februar 2015 definierte der Europäische Gerichtshof zum Asylantrag des US-Deserteurs André Shepherd Grundsätze für das Verfahren vor dem Verwaltungsgericht in München. Viele Medien sehen nun seine Chancen, Asyl zu erhalten, als sehr unwahrscheinlich an. Ob das wirklich so ist und welche Konsequenzen das Urteil hat, dafür gibt Rudi Friedrich von Connection e.V. eine erste Einschätzung. (d. Red.)

Report from the week of action for military-free education and research

The first ever international week of action for military-free education and research was held between 25-31 October 2014. This follows on from a day of action last year. Antimilitarists across the world took action to raise awareness, and challenge, the role the military has in education and research in educational institutions. This role gives them access to young people - to lay the groundwork for recruitment later in life, and to promote military values.

No weapons supplies to Iraq - Open borders to refugees

Press Statement by the spokesperson of the campaign Action outcry - Stop the arms trade!

The campaign "Action outcry - Stop the arms trade" criticized the decision made by the Federal Government, to upgrade the weapons of Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq with German war weapons. The campaign spokesmen Jürgen Grässlin and Paul Russmann spoke emphatically of "the disastrous consequences of the pending arms transfers".

"German arms supplies to the Kurdish peshmerga are false and fatal in their effect. Whoever supplies weapons to a war party, is adding fuel to the fire of war" said Jürgen Grässlin, national spokesman of the German Peace Society - United War Resisters (DFG-VK) and for the campaign 'Action outcry - Stop the arms trade"!

Die Menschen davon zu überzeugen, dass es sinnvoll ist, mit deutschen Soldaten Krieg zu führen, ist keine einfache Aufgabe. Jeder Militarist versucht es auf seine Weise und jeder erklärt sich die Verweigerung der Menschen, dies anzunehmen, anders.

Lutzerather Gate Blockade cleared at Büchel nuclear base in Germany

Hiroshima Remembrance Day , August 6 2014, 11 am. The blockade at the Lutzerather Gate of the Büchel nuclear base was cleared at about 6.30 am this morning to allow vehicles entry to the nuclear weapons base. Of the 12 activists blockading the gate, one could not be immediately removed because he had locked himself to the gate with a bike lock around his neck. The police had to lift him and open the gate with him still attached. After attempts to break the lock, the police were forced to cut the gate itself in order to remove the protester. He and two other activists without ID were arrested and taken to Cochen police station, one of them is under-age. All the other blockaders were let go after their personal details were recorded.
