for more than 60 Years ago, anti-militarists gather around the world at Easter, to protest united against the war industry.
We, the alliance "Rheinmetall Disarm - Kassel", call on you to be part of the protest against the Kassel armaments companies.
With Fortress Europe both legitimize the EU, as well as the federal government the use of weapons from Germany against civilians. These arms companies are not only benefiting from proxy wars around the world, but also from the resulting causes of flight.
We can no longer stand by and watch! With tanks from Kassel, exploitation and oppression are made possible all over the world. There will also be totalitarian regimes, like Saudi Arabia or Turkey, strengthened.
Healthcare not Warfare!
The latest decision by the federal government urges an increase in armaments spending for the year 2021. This is the clear attempt, To put Germany and the entire EU in a leading role in the global war. A decision for more war spending, is a decision against people. Especially during a pandemic, a government should pay more attention than ever to people's needs. Instead, they are currently using their resources for this, to export death to other countries.
Right now it would be sensible and necessary to deal with the enormous psychological and economic strain on people and society, to confront collectively. This can only be done on an equal global level - because a pandemic knows no borders!
Rheinmetall Disarming Alliance - Kassel We'll be loud! We will be colorful! We will resist!
We will try with all our might and the means at our disposal to disrupt the war industry in Kassel. It is important for us to set an example of utopias when we work together. That means respectful cooperation, mutual support and a non-macho mood. With our reflective and solidary stance, we will become a thorn in the side of the war industry. We are clearly against the Rheinmetall corporations, Krauss-Maffei-Wegmann and all the other armaments companies and factories.
We do not oppose those employed there. We acknowledge, that under capitalism people often do not have a free choice of career. We hope to be able to reach the employees there with our actions.
A hygiene concept has been drawn up and an awareness team is being formed. We will give our best, that all people feel comfortable in the action.
