On 4-5th September NATO meets at the Celtic Manor in Newport South Wales. Supposedly meeting to strengthen partnerships and forge alliances around issues of national security and protection of vital resources, this video reveals for the first time the Real NATO Agenda.
Wales could see its biggest protests in a generation as world leaders meet planning their war on the world.
War is the enemy of the poor. At this years summit the US will be pressuring Western Powers to increase their already huge military budgets at a time when poverty and inequality are soaring. The worlds 85 richest people have as much as poorest 3.5 billion.
Money into war is money out of our communities. In the UK, 500,000 people had to resort to food banks last year.
None of the cuts would be necessary if the sums Britain spends on its military and armanents were invested in social need instead of the war machine.
This autumn the powerful will make their voices heard at the NATO summit. We must make sure that the voice of the millions around the world who need peace and justice is also heard.
Some useful links:-
The protests have already started. Yesterday there was a successful event in Cardiff, where protestors managed to disrupt army recruiters, managing to close down the "Career Centre" for 2 hours. Onwards to NATO.
The message on the banner translates as :-
' WHEN THE WEALTHY WAGE WAR, IT'S THE POOR WHO DIE.'
