The Anti-Militarist Network is a non-hierarchical, UK-wide network of autonomous campaigns, groups and activists opposed to militarism and the arms industry. It aims to provide support to anti-militarist campaigns and groups, a forum for communication, and an infrastructure for direct action.
The Anti-Militarist Network will be holding a national gathering in Edinburgh on Saturday the 3rd of October. Among other things we will be discussing the resistance to the upcoming NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Edinburgh ( 13-17th November - see http://natowc.noflag.org.uk), the decommissioners week in Brighton ( 16-26 October – see http://www.smashedo.org.uk/support%20the%20decommissioners.html), the newly formed Target Brimar campaign in Manchester (launch demo 17th October - see http://www.targetbrimar.org.uk/) and other anti-militarist campaigns and events across the UK. The AMN gathering is a great opportunity for activists from around the country to network and build a national anti-militarist movement.
The gathering is open to anyone who supports the AMNs aims and principles (http://www.antimilitaristnetwork.org.uk/about/).
