Big success for the German peace movement against the "bombodrom"

The "bombodrom" is a 120 square kilometers big area in Germany, 80 km north of Berlin. This area was used by the Russian Air Force as bombing and shooting training area (therefore named with the Russian word "bombodrom".). The people in this area suffered for the noise and the poisoning of the environment for more than 30 years. After the unification of Germany. they had hoped that this will stop. But since 1992 the German government wanted to use this area for the German Air Force.

NATO Bombs Swedish Civilians

Late last night the six peace activists currently inside the NATO bombing range in northern Sweden heard three strong explosions. The first was around 22:00, the second at 22:40 and the third at 22:42. All the peace activists are unhurt but shocked that NATO choose to bomb the area despite the presence of civilians in the firing range. Of the 2000 personnel involved in the exercise approximately 1000 are British, based aboard the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious. We have no information on the nationality of the planes which bombed the area last night.

Nein zur NATO! Nein zum Krieg! Nein zur Gewalt?

Es war der Erfolg der Konferenz am 3. und 5. April bei Strasbourg, die Vielfältigkeit der europäischen Bewegungen unter der Einigkeit über das Ziel „Nein zur NATO!“ zu versammeln. Quasi im Konzert mit Camp, Blockade und Demonstration sollte ihre Aufgabe darin bestehe, den Schwerpunkt auf Analyse und Strategie zu legen. Diese Anspruch wurde nur zum Teil Wirklichkeit, zum Teil blieb es bei bloßen Informationen und Diskussionen. Doch alles andere wäre keine realistische Erwartung gewesen. Denn erstens handelte es sich um ein äußerst breites Bündnis von verschiedensten Gruppierungen.
