Europe fights against war

Issue No. 2080

Delegates from Greece, Italy and Poland all reported that their governments were responding to the anti‑war movement with authoritarian measures.

Brigitte Ostmeyer from the Left Party in Germany spoke of the growing movement against German troops being in Afghanistan.

She condemned German Green party MPs for voting to send the troops, and said that many Green supporters were disillusioned as a result.

The Left Party, which has helped organise anti-war feeling in the country, is now benefiting from a mood of resistance that is spreading across Germany.
