In Stockholm the following events took place last Saturday:
A demonstration outside the US Embassy with about 50 participants. Speaking were
representatives of Women for Peace; the Social Democratic Women's Association;
Helen John, known from Greenham Common; and myself, representing ARC-PEACE. The
speakers focused on the program for militarization of space, but also on the
bomb war against Afghanistan. The Embassy was sealed off not only by the robust
permanent fences, but also by a new concrete block wall put up by the police.
Only one person was allowed to pass the barriers to hand over a resolution to
the guard at the entrance of the Embassy.
A march through Stockholm against the US war in Afghanistan with 4000
A meeting combined with a film show at the cinema Zita. The 29 minutes
video "Star War Returns" was shown, after which comments were given by
Helen John, Curt Riberdahl of the Lawyers against Nuclear Arms, and the
undersigned representing ARC-PEACE. There was also a show of the video "Donīt
trust Menwith Balls".
The events were reported in the press (which otherwise is seldom the case).
