In November 2008 a gathering of reflection and planning for a new anti-militarist movement took place in Edinburgh. Having taken a critical look at the current state of the anti-militarist/anti-war/peace movement in the UK whilst celebrating the movement's successes and analysing its shortcomings, the Anti- Militarist Network (AMN) was formed.
Join us for the second gathering to further discuss how we can build an anti-militarist movement capable of resisting and stopping current and future militarism and aggressive state violence.
This gathering will also continue to bring together a broad-based network of groups and individuals to begin mobilising for the NATO Parliamentary Assembly that will take place 13th-17th November 2009.
When: Sunday 1 March
Time: from 11am to 6pm
Where: 60 The Pleasance, Edinburgh
The Anti-Militarist Network was created on November the 30th during an anti-militarist gathering in Edinburgh. It aims to provide support across the network between campaigns and groups across the UK, and organise to resist the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Edinburgh, November 2009.
The network has the following principles.
• The AMN organises along the principles of autonomy and non-heirarchy
• We embrace a diversity of tactics
• We will not condemn other peoples actions
The network makes decisions at gatherings. After this gathering the next gathering will take place in Brighton on the 2nd and 3rd of May.
