Statement by the Canadian Peace Alliance
On April 4th 2009, NATO will celebrate its 60th anniversary with a summit meeting in Strasbourg, France. NATO has emerged as a broad military alliance that integrates the foreign policy and decision making of its member countries into its own policy, strategy and military decisions.
History has shown that the dangers posed to peace and international security come precisely from the military alliances of various powers striving to dominate the world. NATO is such an alliance and for that reason Strasbourg will be the scene of mass demonstrations against the NATO alliance and what it represents.
