Against US Military Bases in the Czech Republic

The proposed new U.S. base in the Czech Republic and related interceptor missiles to be based in Poland mark a dangerous escalation. As activists from the Czech Republic and Poland, as well as from Hungary, Belgium, Greece, France, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom have stated, "The realisation of the US plan will not lead to enhanced security. On the contrary - it will lead to new dangers and insecurities. Although it is described as 'defensive,' in reality it will allow the United States to attack other countries without fear of retaliation. It will also put 'host' countries on the front line in future US wars." (Prague Declaration, "Peace Doesn't Need New Missiles -We say no to the US missile defense system in Europe" May 2007)

Solidarity with Opponents of Proposed U.S. Military Base in the Czech Republic

This statement was delivered by a delegation of U.S. peace activists on November 16, 2007 to Ambassador Martin Palous at the Permanent Mission of the Czech Republic to the UN in Manhattan. The statement was presented in support of Czech demonstrations against a military base the US and Czech Republic plan to set up near Prague for radar for an anti-missile system that will be based in Poland.

We plan to publicize this statement widely in the coming weeks.
Please add your name and support.

The Japanese and their allies are on the verge of wresting control of the IWC (International Whaling Commission) from the hands of the conservationists. This will result in a large scale resumption of the great whales at a time when many of these species and facing the possibility of extinction. Register your protest, read the facts and sign the attached petition or the online form.

Nature is dying… Show you care!
Commercial whaling is set to restart in the near future. Many whales are on the brink of extinction and a return to whaling would almost certainly lead to extinctions of some of the species of these gentle giants.

Brutal persecutions of Falun Gong followers in China

In July 1999, the Chinese government placed a ban on Falun Gong and its 100 million practitioners. Since then, millions of Falun Gong practitioners have faced serious violations of their human rights. Hundreds of thousands of people have already been detained in Chinese prisons and labor camps because they practice Falun Gong. Thousands have been tortured to death; tens of thousands are undergoing torture and are at risk of a custodial execution. There are many cases of "disappearances" of Falun Gong practitioners. Currently, no one knows the true toll of lives lost or persons subjected to extreme torture due to the crackdown against Falun Gong in China, but preliminary data indicates that this is one of the most devastating events in modern history.
There is a petition against the persecution of Falun Gong followers in China.
They are tortured, suffer in concentration camps... Why? Just because they numbered more than the communist party.
