  • [01] European Social Forum renews anti-war pledge

    The European Social Forum on Sunday renewed its pledge to mobilize for a complete withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afganistan and to avert a new war in Iran.

    At the end of a four-day meeting in Athens, the anti-globalisation Forum repeated its opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories and its backing for nuclear disarmament, also calling for the elimination of military bases in Europe.

    "The current situation is full of opportunities but also dramatic dangers. Opposition and resistance to the war and occupation of Iraq have exposed the British and US strategy as a failure. The world is facing the nightmare of a new war in Iran. The arbitrary decision of the EU to cut funds to the National Palestinian Authority is unacceptable and exacerbates the whole situation. The oppression of Kurdish people has still not come to an end," the group said in a declaration.

    The Forum announced a week of action from 23 to 30 September 2006 and appealed for a international day of action on October 7, 2006 in Europe and Africa.

    Among other demands are unconditional legalization and equal rights for all migrants in Europe and the closure of all detention centers on the continent.

    "This year has been significant in that a number of social struggles and campaigns have been successful in stopping neoliberal projects such as the proposed European Constitution Treaty, EU Ports Directive, and CPE in France. Opposition movements to neoliberalism are growing and clashing with the power of trans-national corporations, the G8 and organizations such as the WTO, IMF and World Bank, and neo-liberal policies of the USA and European Union," the declaration said.
