“On Saturday about 2000 peace activists demonstrated against the US Ramstein Air Base in Germany.
The biggest US air base in Europe is not only responsible for the coordination of the “drone wars” in Africa and Middle East. Every day huge military machines take off from Ramstein loaded with soldiers or tons of military equipment and weapons which are sent to the war zones of the US foreign war policy.
The drone wars in Yemen, Pakistan and many other countries would not be possible without Ramstein. The German peace movement is aware and tries to mobilize all citizens against the imperialistic war machine.
Most German mainstream media ignores this important event. Just like the government which tolerates the US war politics or even supports it. Just a few days ago it was made public that 20 new atomic bombs from the US will be stationed at Büchel airbase.
Germany and whole Europe has to stand up. Time is running.
In solidarity with the people in Syria, who are victims of those imperialistic wars like in Yemen, Iraq and Libya.
