International Campaign Against US Military Bases

The international "peace" movement is launching a world wide campaign against US military bases.

From the Communist Party of Australia's Guardian

Over 400 delegates from 40 countries spanning Asia, the Pacific, Africa, Europe and North and South America are meeting from March 5-9 in Quito, Ecuador and at the coastal city of Manta to discuss the social, political, security and environmental problems posed by the presence of foreign military bases in their countries.

They are participating in an International Conference for the elimination of foreign military bases to co-ordinate and organise the growing global movement against foreign, mainly United States, bases. Delegates will travel to the US military base at Manta. President Correa has declared that the lease on the base will not be renewed when it falls due in 2009.

Australian delegate Denis Doherty, speaking from Quito on Monday, pointed to the contrast in positions between Ecuador and Australia: "The people of Ecuador have decided to throw out the US base at Manta. At the same time in Australia a new US military base at Geraldton has been agreed after two years of secret negotiations about which the Australian people knew nothing.

"However, the 30-year-old campaign to rid Australia of United States bases will find new strength from this new global anti-bases organisation
," Doherty said.

"Major demonstrations are already planned against the Talisman Saber US-Australian war games to be held in June at the new base at Shoalwater Bay in Queensland. Other actions will take place at Pine Gap, Geraldton and others of the almost 40 United States military facilities on our soil."

Dennis Doherty who was a keynote speaker at the conference, is an important figure in the Australian and international peace movement.

He has been a leader of the New South Wales branch of the Catholic peace organisation, Pax Christi. With his partner Hannah Middleton, Doherty leads the Australian Anti-Bases Campaign Coalition, which for over 20 years has campaigned against US bases in Australia.

The couple also works closely with NZ's Anti Bases Campaign. In January 2003 they both joined the protest against the US satellite tracking station at Waihopai, near Blenheim.

Middleton is also a board member of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space.

Doherty is a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Australia, while Middleton is the Party's president.

Look to a new wave of anti-US base campaigns as the "peace" movement goes all out to weaken US military capability.

Nobody loves peace more than I do Biffo-that's why I hold the "peace" movement in such comntempt.

BTW Biffo, Taiwan is, for now, an independent state. It is not part of China and hopefully will remain independent until at least when China is free.

Biffo certainly loves believing the propaganda coming out of the mouths of the Communist Party of China when it states how Taiwan is "part" of China along with using force to subvert Hong Kong to tow its socialistic, Communist hardline way. No protests to be found in that.

I would also wonder where are all the protests against Russia and China supporting the Sudanese government which is committing genocide in Darfur and even the Sudanese rebel groups are allegedly also working with the Sudanese government to promote its atrocious behavior? Why are there no protests against sending arms to Sudan or having oil links to it? Hmm? But I guess to having the U.S. bring about a more humanitarian government than the previous ones in Iraq and Afghanistan are "imperialistic" but Russia and China not using Sudan as a puppet government which is committing genocide or China threatening Taiwan with missiles isn't.

Typical among these "peace" types.

I wonder how Dennis Doherty and the anti-US collective feel about US militarism in World War II? If not for extreme US militarism ANZ would be part of the Japanese Empire and Doherty and his "collective" would be slaves.

Depends who you ask. One man's independent state is another man's renegade province.

Perhaps if the USA had supported our WWII ally Ecuador, who was already allowing us to build bases on their territory, in their territorial war with Peru (check out the crap peace treaty we Brazil negotiate between them in 1942), they would be more interested in suppporting us now. But we screwed them over then, hard, which led to 50 years of war. Even if US citizens have forgotten this irresponsible failure to stand up for the freedom of our allies, the Ecuadorians have not.

And anyway, Correa did say he would renew the USA's lease at Manta, no problem. In exchange, however, he wants to build an Ecuadorian military base in south Florida. Correa and the Bolivarians may be many things, but they are not blind pacifists.

You guys could do worse than sign up for Geography 101.
Like it or not, Taiwan is part of China. So is Hong Kong. It would be so great if Otago was not part of New Zealand but too bad. Get over it the lot of you.

PS Trev what does "comntempt" mean and why do you hold the peace movement in it?

Trev, just returned from my wee holiday. So relaxed I am. Stalingrad is certainly beautiful at this time of the year !

Got to say though your site seems a litle tame, even boring. Yes, you still have your perennials like Mad Mah of "Hmmm...Typical!" fame, and Exotit of course, but apart from them not much going on.

What's the story 'bro ? You not just a little bit worried by the "0 comments....0 comments" I keep seeing ?

Oh, there is one thing - your self proclaimed love of "peace". 98% would say that you're not entitled to such self-congratulation, especially since your "peace" is essentially dependent on The Chickenhawk raining cluster bombs down on "unfortunate" Iraqi "collaterals". And soon Iran for complete, world-destroying madness ?

Some "peace" !

And Mah, the proud proponent of IDF: 10 Palestinians: 1 - don't bother coming back with your heady "What about, what about....?" stuff.

Before sliding into apoplectic reflex consider this: is The Chickenhawk's "peace" not actually more inhuman, destructive and cruel than the Butcher's horrific former governance ?

No ! Oh I knew you'd say that. So take a look at the body count, General Bluster......

Paige-Taiwan is part of China like the Malagasy Republic is part of Mozambique, or British Gibraltar is part of Spain.

Geographical proximity does not a united state make.

Steve-great to catch up-spend some time with the old KGB colleagues perhaps?

Haven't forgotten your Maori question BTW.

I think you're assuming a bit Steve, I've never supported the Iraq War, though I do hope Bush's last ditch effort and slightly harder line with Iran, does somehow miraculously bring peace to the region.

Comments wax and wane, though hit counts are stable.

Got some good stuff coming up.

Biffo-I hold the peace movement in conte..contam...comt...dislike, because it is essentially a tool of the revolutionary socialist movement.

I have studied literally hundreds of peace groups, from the Buller peace Group to the World Peace Council.

Without exception every one was led by Marxist-Leninists, allied to the local communist party, or worked closely with Marxist groups.

The peace movement doesn't want peace, it wants less resistanceto socialism.

It is a movement of traitors, liars and hypocrites.

Other than that it is OK.

Well, traitors, liars and hypocrites are seen more frequently on your side Trev - read A24 of the Sunday Star Times today.

That colossus of moral rectitude and religious-right judgment, Newt Gingrich, former Republican Majority Leader in US House of Representatives. Same job the commie sleeper Pelosi you told me about got now.

Well, ain't it strange how the man's activities should belie his own name ?

Indeed it is. He's anything but a newt it seems. Forced to admit was Newt, dirty mongrel, that he was fornicating with his own little Monica, at the very, very same time he was sonorously, righteously, pursuing Clinton to impeachment hearings for immorality.

Can you believe that ? The bastard was damn near leading the daily prayer in the US House of Representatives - "In God We Trust".

It must be a subliminal aspect of hard-out rightists. To "ad hominen" to an obscene level for obscene political gain - and at the same time you're into it yourself. The passionate vigour of the political chase surpassed only by the passionate vigour of the sack !

But get this - at the same bloody time ! Mongrel hypocrite !

As for liars, well, The Chickenhawk and the Poodle - WMD.

Traitors. Let me see. The word obviously must have an expanded meaning post-Cold War - globalisation, technology, communications etc.

So for me the absolute traitor is the leader of the Western world - strutting round with overlarge six guns and half a hard-on. Bent on trouble.....

We, the entire world, really, really need George Bush not to destroy the world. He seems to have no idea how not to.

Covered all bases there Trev !
