Ctrl+Alt+EU : No military Europe

Vredesactie launches a new campaign against the militarisation of Europe. You can find a link to more information, planned actions and how to participate in the menu on the right. More information about the info sessions can be found in the agenda.

The European quarter in Brussels

The impressive buildings of the European institutions stand right next to the offices of large defence lobbyists. Weapons manufacturers and their lobbyists are regulars at the European political institutions. They help shape policy, sell their solutions to problems they themselves define to the European Union and obtain subsidies for their research and product development. "What's good for companies, is good for everyone", is the motto of the European politicians. They look at the arms industry as an economical sector like any other industry that must be nurtured to stay competitive in a global market. But policy tailored to the arms industry does not create a safer world -- and hence not a safer Europe either.

High time to step in

Vredesactie rises to the challenge with the campaign Ctrl+Alt+EU. Preceding the European elections of May 2014 we will take action in the European quarter in Brussels. We will burst the Brussels bubble: we'll disrupt the daily functioning and reveal the interweaving between companies and politics.
