Launch of petition against army recruitment in schools

Cymdeithas y Cymod, (the Fellowship of Reconciliation in Wales)has launched a petition calling on the British Armed Forces to stop recruiting school children:

Britain is the only country out of the 27 in the EU to recruit children 16 years old to the armed forces. The armed forces target their recruitment on the schools in the most deprived areas of Wales. Britain is the only country in the EU to allow military presence in its schools. ”We call on the National Assembly of Wales to urge the Welsh Government to legislate to stop the armed forces from going into schools in Wales to recruit children to join.”

Stop the JNF… Stop Greenwashing Apartheid

The Jewish National Fund, or ‘JNF’, continues to serve as a global fundraiser for Israeli colonization and apartheid. Despite its complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity, and despite its status as a chartered agent of the State of Israel, the JNF and its affiliate organizations enjoy charitable status in over 50 countries as environmental charities. These JNF branches worldwide also work to muster the political support necessary for legitimizing and promoting Israeli apartheid, a task greatly facilitated by the political, economic and cultural elites in each country that have signed on as JNF patrons.

Join global civil society in a campaign to challenge the JNF—see full details and endorse the call to stop green washing apartheid.

Don’t Attack Iran: Sign the Statement

The Stop the War Coalition petition will be delivered to Downing Street, addressed to the British Prime Minister:

“We are extremely concerned at reports that plans are being drawn up for an attack on Iran. The case being made for war on Iran is based on a series of speculations about ‘undisclosed nuclear-related activities’ reminiscent of the disproven ‘intelligence’ about weapons of mass destruction used to justify the disastrous attack on Iraq” . . . .
