WILPF Peace and Security

 

E-NEWS June, 2008

 

This month let's see if we can make some progress on the tasks we have been given. Felicity Hill has sent us the URL for current program priorities as listed on the WILPF Geneva web site. You can find the complete program document at http://www.wilpf.int.ch/programme/2007-2010.htm.

Let's look first evaluate what we've all accomplished tas a working group in Disarmament and Demilitarization since the Bolivia Congress, begin to ponder priorities until the next Congress and also consider if there are resolutions we wish to propose at the November International Board meeting. (Next month we can do the same for Human Rights and Globalization). Please share your own thoughts and information on any of these categories with the list serve at disarmament@wilpf.ch or with me directly at carol.disarm@gmail.com .

 

CHALLENGE MILITARISM:
 
challenge military security concepts, end current conflicts & promote disarmament
 
This is the first pillar of WILPF program and is the focus of the disarmament and demilitarization portion of our Peace and Security work. Please share your comments on what we've accomplished thus far (including in your own Section!) and what you would like to see as priorities from the beginning of 2009 until our next international WILPF Congress.

A. Send Fact Finding Missions to countries in conflict. Issue reports and recommendations:

1. Take up opportunities to publicise the findings of the Colombia mission, at the Commission on the Status of Women and others. Follow up the recommendations of the mission to Colombia.

This presentation at the CSW by the Columbian delegation took place, given in Spanish and translated into English. There was an overflow crowd and it was enthusiasticaly received. Where is the report on Peace Women (I have not been able to find it) and what has been the follow up? Congratulations to Adriana Gonzales and the Columbian Section for a side event well done!

Mary Day Kent, who joined in the WILPF delegation to Columbia, has written a report on the conflicts and life situations in Columbia available from the American Friends Service Committee.

What else has been done on follow-up? 

2. Undertake additional missions to the Israel/Palestine, Sri Lanka, Nepal, India and Cuba if finances allow.

Heidi Meinzolt-Zepner (German Section) made a fact finding visit to Israel and Palestine. We sent the report to the Peace and Security list serve and until recently it was on the WILPF website

The Middle East Committee now has a home on the international WILPF web site with its own web pages here . It is still in formation and committee members and their priorities presented in Bolivia are not yet listed. The resolution submitted by the committee in Bolivia does not appear anywhere, but the call in that resolution for support of a Nuclear and WMD free zone in the Middle East should be of particular interest to this working group. Hanan Awaad wants to help us form an Iraqi WILPF Section and the Middle East Committee is also working on forming a Jordanian Section.

What other conflict situations would you like WILPF to consider? What about occupations of Iraq and Afghanstan? 

B. Oppose military security structures and policies, support alternatives:

1. Participate in the Abolition of Military Bases Network for closure of such bases around the world, holding the base occupier fully responsible for follow up cleaning and for refunding the population for health problems due to the destructive effects of their military presence;

Three attended the No Bases Network meeting in Ecuador. Mary Day Kent has since left the WILPF staff (U.S. Section) but is still a WILPF member and reported on the Ecuadorian intent to shut down Manta, the major U.S. base there. Tell us, Kozue Akibayashi (Japan Section) and Irene Eckert (German Section) about any follow-up by you or your Section and how you are currently involved. In the U.S. we have formed a supporting No Bases Network with AFSC at the core as enabler and funder and Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space as a key participant. Eight WILPF members (from British, Norwegian, German and U.S. Sections ) participated in a demonstration a U.S. cyber spy base in Germany. Read Regina Hagen's (German Section) report on celebration of the base shut down and encounter with U.S. military police. Are other Sections involved in anti-military base work?

2. Disclose military spending, publicise figures, show the alternatives, utilize gender budgeting to compare mil itary R&D compared to peace research budgets, Nordic Battle Group costs compared to the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)

The WILPF Geneva International Women's Day Seminar was a great start for all of us, and also the You Get What You Pay For brochure.

European Sections please report on your research on the Nordic Battle Group, etc. Would it be helpful to compare percentages spent on human needs and on military budgets in our various countries. There is quite a difference between Costa Rica and the U.S.A., for instance.

U.S. DISARM and members of the Swedish Section (including co-President Kerstin Greback ) joined Sam Cook of Peace Women and Ray Acheson of Reaching Critical Will in a side event on women, military spending and gender budgeting at the Commission on the Status of Women. WILPF member Mary Beth Sullivan (Outreach Coordinator for our partner Global Network) spoke powerfully about the trillions sought for U.S. space militarization (the extreme of male dominance) and the need for conversion to peace economies.

3. Support the anti-NATO efforts of some sections in the build up to the April 2008 Summit in Bucharest, and continue the linkage WILPF has always made with anti-NATO work to the need for the OSCE to be supported;

European Sections -- please report what you did on this.

4. Support efforts by the European sections to oppose the militarized security concept in the EU European Reform Treaty and the European Defence Agency which has implications for all conflict zones in which EU troops will be deployed in Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere;

Again, members of European Sectins please report.

5. Increase the number of conflicts on which international WILPF is engaged. Currently WILPF is actively working on the conflicts in the Middle East, Colombia, Sri Lanka, and DRC. If Sections want International WILPF to expand this list, then expertise, guidance and strategic advice is required;

Ferial, (Lebanon), Hanan (Palestine), Dulcy and Indra (Sri Lanka). Marie-Claire (Congo). and Adrianna (Columbia) have WILPF sisters been able to assist you in anyway in your own situations? Do you want to report on your own work and situation, and what more can be done to help? What other conflicts should be addressing and how can we be of use? What about the U.S. occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq?

6. Continue to monitor and advocate for disarmament through multilateral processes, including the nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty and the Conference on Disarmament

In what ways have Sections been able to engage in important workon nuclear weapons abolition?

What about WILPF work in Lebanon, Norway, Sweden, Britain and Geneva on the new Cluster Bombs treaty? Can we oooperate more widely in support of Prevention of An Arms Race in Outer Space (PAROS) and preventing weapons in space? In the U.S. our Disarmament committee is increasingly concerned about the dangers of bioweapons research and threats to the Bioweapons Convention. Costa Rica is now on the Security Council and the Costa Rican WILPF Section is supporting their government's continuing efforts to achieve a treaty controlling the small arms trade. Can we work more together on these issues?

7.Continue to participate in the International week to protest militarization of space. (October 2008).

In 2007 WILPF Sections in Australia, Geneva WILPF, Germany, Norway the United Kingdom and the United States participated in Keep Space for Peace Week, October 4 to 13. Read the statement delivered by WILPF to UN delegations during that week.

This year all WILPF and Global Network reports were included in the United Nations World Space Week publication ( 5 megabytes -- not for older computers). It celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Sputnik launch, and the fortieth anniversary of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty meant to ensure the peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind.Global Network and WILPF have found the annual UN World Space Week, which is organized by an NGO co-sponsored by aerospace corporations, devoted to arousing the enthusiasm of young people for space exploration. It avoids any mention of space militarization and problems which must be resolved if space is to remain a shared commons, and kept for peaceful uses. -- not destruction of the environment, earth's life forms and the human race. This year WILPF and Global Network reports dominate U.S., U.K. and Indian sections. Many reports were cut and few of our photos were used, but at least we begin to open dialogue on the issues.

  • Hunger strikes continue in protest of US plans for a "missile defence" system in Europe
    Learn more from the RCW E-News, 30 May and 13 June. Also take a moment to sign the online petition against the development of this system - help the campaigners reach 200,000 signatures by 10 July.

C. To Support Section’s Political lobbying, the Secretariat will:

(Has your Section been able to take advantage of any of the following services and resources from our international office?)

  1. Draft lobbying letters, talking points and background information to enable Sections to ask questions of their governments and parliaments about military spending, and the reporting of it to the UN Arms and Military Spending register.
  2. Draft lobbying letters, talking points and background information to enable Sections to pressure for the Security Council to implement Article 26 of the UN Charter
  3. Create backgrounders on i) military spending, compare military spending to gender equality spending, opportunity cost disarmament and development ii) the so-called “War on Terror” and iii) deterrence (“Security for Whom?”);
  4. Support increased Section linkage with International WILPF projects on disarmament (Reaching Critical Will) and 1325 (PeaceWomen), by providing copies of statements made by the governments directly to Sections, continue monitoring and reporting on activities of the NPT, CD and General Assembly, highlight actions taken by WILPF sections on disarmament and 1325 in the regular newsletters going to thousands of NGOs, government representatives and UN officials.
* * * * *

That is a lot to think about!

And what about PRIORITIES between now and the next Congress? What issues will you concentrate on in your Section and what can we do and achieve together?

What resolutions re disarmament/demilitarization is your Section planning to propose to the International Board (meeting in Geneva this November). Do we want to propose any resolution(s) or statements from this working group?

PLEASE RESPOND

Next month we will look at human rights (including indigineous rights and racial justice) and global governance.

Costa Rican WILPF Statement

on Human Rights and the Arms Trade

Human Rights and the Arms Trade

This year celebrates the 60th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 to which most of the nations of the world subscribe.

Although this important document has been praised and copied throughout its history, it remains basically a piece of paper. Abuses toward humanity abound and the biggest threat to human rights, wars and threats of war, continues to be viable in the politics of most countries because governments will not give up arms as a means of controlling populations and resources, and the arms industry will not give up such a lucrative business.

There are at this minute wars in Iraq, the Middle East, Colombia, and Afghanistan, and threatening situations in the Congo, Burma and Darfur. These conflicts have gone on for years without resolving the crucial problems that created them. All have caused deaths of military and civilians, the destruction of homes, food, water supplies, the infrastructure, the environment, and have exhausted funds that are needed for maintaining a decent life, and in the end, all will be settled by negotiation. Military solutions do not solve problems. They create more.

Wars also affect neighboring countries prompting them to increase their military in their own defense as is happening in Venezuela, Turkey, Lebanon and Pakistan.

The United States led incursion to topple Saddam Hussein and find the weapons of mass destruction has led to five years of war which has killed an estimated 650,000 civilians, injured many more, forced millions to abandon their homes and even their country, and has caused threatening diseases from shortages of food, potable water and medicines, and increases of cancer, leukemia and birth defects as a result of depleted uranium used in weapons. Damage to the environment from bombing, burning, and the destruction of resources is insurmountable.

Even after truces are signed it takes years for a country to recuperate and return to a normal civil society. This is obvious here in Central America which is still trying to ‘rebuild’ twenty years after the civil wars ended.

Yet military budgets go up every year. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) which monitors military spending, 2006 was a record year with $1204 billion to beef up the arms trade and provide overloaded arsenals for the nations of the world, and the biggest arms dealers of all are the five permanent members of the UN Security Council!

What about the buyers? Many are countries that have critical needs in basic services such as schools, water and electricity, or are not involved in conflicts with other countries. Some of the countries that increased their military spending, according to SIPRI are Mexico with $3.1 billion, Canada with $3,401 million, Venezuela with $1,924 million, Kenya with $315 million, Pakistan with $4,572 million, Indonesia with $3,695 million, Senegal with $145 million and Saudi Arabia with $29,032 million. And the biggest spender of all, the United States which spent $528,692 million. This year’s military budgets promise to be even higher.

Unfortunately, with all the arms trading around the world and the upgrading of weaponry, the availability of arms, new or used, for non-governmental groups, private security forces, rebel groups, narcotrafficers, terrorists and criminals is also more widespread. Anyone with dollars to spend will find a seller.

Costa Rica as a new member on the UN Security Council wants to use its position to call for disarmament, or at least, more control over the buying and selling of arms. The Arias government, recognized for its peace position, will push for a Treaty on Arms Transfers that would oblige countries to monitor arms sales and prohibit sales to countries with gross human rights abuses. The adoption of such a treaty could be a start toward international disarmament and a saner way for the world to live.

Time to plan for Keep Space for Peace week

October 4 to 13, 2007

ks4p

WILPF is again co-sponsoring Keep Space for Peace Week internationally with Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. Read the WILPF 2006 report prepared for the UN Space Agencies in Vienna to see what WILPF and Global Network affiliates did last year for KS4P week. This is the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which seeks to ensure the peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind. This year let's do even more, and show the UN and the wider world that citizens want to free the heavens from weapons and war!

Explore Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space for information on U.S military master plans for full spectrum domination, resistance to U.S. missile defense bases in Europe, extensive files on weapons and nuclear power in space, and much more. Explore Reaching Critical Will for information on the antidote: Prevention of an Arms Race in Outer Space. Explore below for Global Network and WILPF resources on Keep Space for Peace Week.

GLOBAL NETWORK RESOURCES FOR KS4P WEEK

Resources for your 2007 events are now available from Global Network. You will find speakers, entertainers and posters for public education. View the poster and flier, that can now be ordered from Global Network. View a variety of videos that can be used for information and to stimulate discussion on space militarization. Scroll down for many other resources you can order, download or view on line. A Space for Peace, produced by WILPFer MacGregor Eddy for both WILPF and Global Network, is available for $5.00, is deliberately not copy righted, and can be reproduced cheaply for wider distribution.

WILPF RESOURCES ON UNITED NATIONS SPACE TREATIES: EMPHASIZE THE POSITIVE:

Emphasize the positive: We must remember, as we educate our communities on U.S. aggressive and hubristic space militarization programs, that we do not want to spread hopelessness and despair. There is hope in the gradual strengthening of international space law. WILPF Reaching Critical Will has extensive information on UN space treaties and Prevention of an Arms Race in Outer Space.

This is the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which sought to ensure the peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind. (See the UNCOPUOS Brochure on 50th anniversary events.) There are now eight key treaties monitored by UNCOPUOS which regulate what can be done in outer space. Many in the U.S. Administration and the Pentagon seek to escape the current restrictions of international space law, while governments of most other countries are trying to strengthen the international treaties governing space (see Negotiations on a PAROS Treaty.)

International space law, accompanied by monitoring, inspection and utilization of national and international court systems, is necessary if we are to save space for peace. WILPF believes we also need international treaties regulating exploitation of solar system resources by governments or private corporations, and to ensure maximum benefits to the environment and for all humankind .Unfortunately the U.S. has obstructed treaty negotiations at the United Nations on space issues, and especially since 2001. The world's best hope lies in changing U.S. space militarization policies, and in the U.S. WILPF Section they have a great deal of work to do.

WILPF RESOURCES ON SPACE MILITARIZATION AND THE MIL-CORP CONNEXION

Keep Space for Peace Week is traditionally a time to press for conversion or dismantlement of corporations profiteering on space militarization, and of military bases involved in "missile defense" and Space Command programs. It is also a time when we educate on the dangers of weapons in space now promoted by the U.S.Pentagon, the Administration and aerospace corporations.

Learn about and locate space militarization contractors in your own country using Reaching Critical Will's newly updated fact sheets on aerospace and other corporations promoting and profiting from space militarization. These include both members of the Dirty Dozen (which also profit from the nuclear weapons, waste management and nuclear power industries), and 23 additional corporations promoting and profiting from the space industry. Download and utilize the power point prepared by Loring Wirbel and Wilpf member MacGregor Eddy on The New Military-Industrial Space Complex.

These "star wars" profiteers include Siemens (Germany), Mitsubishi (Japan) BAE and Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman- TRW, Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics and Alliant. The most diversified of these giant corporations, Bechtel, builds much of the infrastructure on the U.S. missile defense and cyberspace spy bases around the world. If none of these corporations have facilities in your country you can search for subcontractors using Google local.

KEEP SPACE FOR PEACE EVENTS AT "STAR WARS" AND "CYBERSPACE SPY" BASES

Note on the Global Network list that events are also listed at Menwith Hill, England (Oct 13 Demonstration at NSA Spy Base, Yorkshire 12:00-4:00 pm). Contact WILPF member Lindis Percy percy@starbeck.eclipse.co.uk. WILPF members in Australia and India will also find events already listed. Go to the Global Network speakers list to find addtional contacts in Australia, France, Canada and Britain. Regina Hagen on that list is a German WILPF member who has in the past organized demonstrations at the U.S. cyberspace spy base in Darmstadt..

U.S. WILPF and Global Network are co-sponsoring events at Space Command and Strategic Command bases this year at Offutt AFB (new home of the Strategic Command) near Omaha, Nebraska, and Vandenberg AFB near Lompoc, California. Read about the Annual Omaha Peace Conference October 6, where Bruce Gagnon will speak and WILPF members will facilitate a workshop on aerospace star wars profiteers. October 9-11 in Omaha is the 2007 Strategic Space and Defense Conference where aerospace corporations show their wares, networking and strategizing with U.S. military brass.

Commitment to non-violence: For those participating in citizens inspections or non-violent direct action at military bases or space industry corporations, or for any reason anticipating tension at a vigil or demonstration, U.S. WILPFer Linda Richards has prepared a non-violent training guide that can be adapted for your own needs. Go to www.atomicvigil.net and click on "Star Wars Satyagraha."

REPORTING

Report plans for events as soon as possible to Global Network and/or to the WILPF Peace and Security Disarmament Working Group at carol.disarm@gmail.com (queries are also welcome). We will also ask for follow-up reports for a possible printed publication of Keep Space for Peace events around the world.

The United Nations sponsors UN World Space Week every year from October 4 to 10. This year we are invited to submit reports to the UN World Space Week Publication. We'll have more informaiton on the process for reporting to this publication in October, after the events have occurred.

Last year, for the first time, we submitted 2006 Keep Space for Peace Week reports from WILPF and Global Network to UN agencies monitoring existing space treaties and to the Organization (WASA) that manages World Space Work for the United Nations. The week is sponsored in part by the aerospace corporations like Lockheed Martin and Alliant Tech Systems, and we fear the week is too much used to excite young people about space exploration, and thus draw them into careers now almost inevitably tied to space militarization. We hope to bring other dimensions to the reporting, including Prevention of an Arms Race in Outer Space, and the need for international laws to regulate exploitation of solar system resources by private corporations.

MORE RESOURCES AND INFORMATION ON WILPF AND GLOBAL NETWORK COOPERATION

Resources and ideas are also available from the strategy session of the annual Global Network conference in Darmstadt in March 2007. Eight WILPF members from Britain, Norway, Germany and the US attended, including Linda Richards and Carol Urner from the US WILPF DISARM committee and Mary Beth Sullivan from Global Network. Read the report of Bruce Gagnon on the Darmstadt conference. Scroll down for photos of the meetings and demonstrations. The WILPF report is also available. Read a Stars and Stripes account of the GN demonstration at US August-Euler Air field in Darmstadt, including interviews of WILPF members Linda Richards and Helen John, British WILPF activist.

Additional resources are available in the report of the WILPF side event on War in Space or Life on Earth: the Choice is Ours, presented at the UN Commission on Sustainable Development, May 3, 2007. Norwegian WILPF sponsored and organized the event, Edel Haven Beukes moderated and Bruce Gagnon and Carol Urner presented.
