OBJECTIVES

  1. It is within the OSCE and a reformed United Nations, and not the EU, that Ireland should pursue its security concerns.
  2. Ireland should pursue a positive neutrality and independent foreign policy and not join or form an association with any military alliance, such as NATO.
  3. Ireland should seek to promote European and international security through a policy of disarmament and should therefore oppose the militarisation of the EU.
  4. Ireland should refuse to cooperate with or condone in any way policies or military groupings which maintain nuclear weapons or any weapons of mass destruction.
  5. Irish troops should only serve abroad as peacekeepers under the auspices of the UN

IAWM VIGIL TO REMEMBER ALL THE DEAD OF WW1

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 09 NOVEMBER 2018

LOOK BACK IN ANGER THIS SUNDAY AND REMEMBER ALL THE DEAD OF WORLD WAR 1

For those in Dublin this weekend try to get along to this vigil to remember all the dead of World War 1.

Supported by:
Sinead Cusack Actor, Felim Egan Artist, Frank Mc Donald Journalist & Writer, Raymond Deane Composer, Stuart Dunne Actor & Artist, Sean Harrington Architect, Rev. Patrick Comerford President CND, Patricia Mc Kenna former MEP, Richard Boyd Barrett TD, Clare Daly TD, Aengus O Snodaigh TD, Councillor Tina Mc Veigh and more.

The Irish Anti-War Movement will hold a dignified vigil at the entrance to the Irish National War Memorial in Island Bridge, Dublin on this Sunday morning 11 November from 10am to 11am. This is to coincide with the World War 1 Armistice People’s Remembrance organised by the Royal British Legion that is taking place in the Memorial Garden from 10.45am.

Our vigil will remember all the dead of WW1 – Irish, British, German, Turkish, soldiers from the colonies etc. and the millions of civilians that died – and we will ask one simple question - What did they die for? This is the title of our pamphlet published four years ago at the centenary of the beginning of the war along with a statement signed by many prominent Irish people. We encourage people who attend to wear white poppies as a symbol of peace.

WW1 was the opposite of a "war to end all wars" and a "victory for democracy". It was instead a military disaster and a catastrophe for humankind which left 16 million dead, 20 million horribly wounded and millions of civilian refugees. Those who survived were deeply scarred with many suffering debilitating long-term effects.

Public Meeting on War and the Environment Wed 24/10/2018 7PM The Teachers Club Dublin

In view of the recent devastating IPCC Report on Climate Change and the immediate deadly threat it poses to humanity, The Irish Anti-War Movement will host a meeting on Wed 24 October 7pm at the Teachers Club Parnell Square Dublin.

It will deal not only with the general effects of war on the environment which are terrible, but also with the specific role of militarism in promoting and locking us in to fossil-fuel dependence.

 

IAWM PROTEST AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON’S DOCTORATE AWARD BY TCD

The IAWM is calling on its members to support this protest against the warmonger Hillary Clinton tomorrow 12-2pm at TCD, Dublin.

PROTEST AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON’S DOCTORATE AWARD BY TCD

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 21 JUNE 2018

The Irish Anti-war Movement is to protest tomorrow (Friday 22 June) against the visit and awarding of an honorary doctorate to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The joint protest, along with TCD Students for Justice in Palestine, will take place at the front entrance to Trinity College Dublin between 12-2pm on Friday 22 June.

The IAWM say that Hillary Clinton is not a woman of peace and is in fact an arch warmonger who supported the Bush / Blair war in Iraq, escalated the war in Afghanistan, and was one of the key instigators in the NATO bombing of Libya.

She openly supported Barack Obama’s increased use of drone warfare which led to multiple civilian deaths of civilians in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere. The US based Bureau of Investigative Journalism estimates that between January 2009 and the end of 2015, there were between 380 and 801 civilian casualties of US Drone warfare, for which Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton must be held responsible.

She has also unquestionably supported Israel’s war on the Palestinians. She increased US financial aid to Israel in 2013 from $2.5B to $3.1. She helped Israel build stronger defence forces including upgrading Patriot Missiles and the Iron Dome System. She refused to criticise Israel even after its forces had targetted the Jabilya refugee camp and a UN school in Gaza in 2014. She has vowed to fight against the Boycott Divestments Sandtions BDS movement.
