the G7 meeting in Hiroshima!
May 18 - 20
US Out of
the Asia Pacific!
Actions have been called,
countries (The United
States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, with the
EU in observer status),
which represent the biggest Western economies will be meeting this month in, of
all places, Hiroshima, Japan. We can be
sure that high on their agenda will be financing more killing and war in
Ukraine. Ironically, they chose to meet
in Hiroshima where the US dropped the first nuclear bomb on people. Today, the war in Ukraine brings us ever
closer to a nuclear war that could destroy the planet and everyone on
sanctions, many tied to the Ukraine war, have brought countries together to
resist this attack on their economies and people. Alternative banking, trade and economic
institutions are coming together and are challenging US and Western hegemony.
meeting in Japan comes at a time that the US is threatening China and moving
more forces and bases to Asia. At the
last NATO summit in Madrid, they decided that NATO should become a world-wide
military alliance with Russia and China as its main targets.
forces will be coming together in Japan to protest at the G7 meeting and calling
for an end to their wars and economic bullying.
There will be protest marches and an alternative summit meeting. UNAC administrative committee member and
president of the Filipino alliance, BAYAN. USA, Rhonda Rimero will be present along with other
people from the US and from many other countries.
If you plan
to hold an action in solidarity please let us know by sending an email to UNACpeace@gmail.com and please send us
pictures of your actions.
date: on May 19, UNAC will hold a webinar with people at the G7 protests. More information will follow soon.
