Dear Friends of Peace Around the World,
We are deeply concerned, and frightened, by the threat of war that permeates the present
The increasingly aggressive and expansionist actions of US/NATO forces in violation of
international law and the sovereign rights of all nations, the raging wars in the Middle East,
the burgeoning arms race devastating the national treasuries, the bellicose language
replacing diplomatic negotiations, the economic difficulties facing country after country,
and the destruction of global environment through war and unfettered exploitation, and
their impact on public health, have all created crises that, unless checked by popular
opposition, can lead to unimaginable catastrophe and war.
None of us can stop this madness alone from within our national borders. The global peace
forces must come together, mobilizing the millions in our countries, and around the world,
for peace. We cannot, and should not, allow our possible differences on other issues to
separate us. WE MUST UNITE FOR PEACE!
On the basis of our shared understanding, we have initiated a Global Campaign Against
US/NATO Military Bases, and are inviting you and your organization, recognized as a voice
of your people for peace and national sovereignty, to join this new Global Campaign by
signing our Global Unity Statement. It is our sincere hope that you will accept this invitation
and join in our global effort to oppose all forms of war and aggression against sovereign
To join the Global Campaign Against US/NATO Military Bases, please sign our Global Unity
Statement on our web site: http://NoUSNATOBases.org
As the first step toward launching our Global Campaign, we will be holding our first
International Conference Against US/NATO Military Basesi on November 16-18, 2018, in
Dublin, Ireland, to be hosted by Peace and Neutrality Alliance (PANA). It is our sincere hope
that you will help us in mobilizing the maximum level of participation in our International
Conference in Dublin. Additional details for the Conference, including registration and the
Conference program, will be announced shortly.
As you are well aware, organizing such a broad-based International Conference requires a
great amount of human and financial resources, especially since we are trying to invite
experts from across the globe to make presentations at this Conference. It is our sincere
hope that you and your organization, based on your sense of solidarity with our common
cause of peace, will make a generous donation toward covering the costs of this very
important and historic Conference.

Conference, please visit our web site at: NoUSNATOBases.org.
