'Arming all sides' is the name of this issue's campaign of the month - an initiative that looks at the arms trade during World War One, and how the arms trade has been one of the main motors for wars since "the war to end all wars". The latest military attacks in Iraq are the clearest example of war profiteers making their killing by arming all sides.

Elbit Systems is one of the world's largest defence electronics manufacturers and integrators. Established in 1967, and based in Haifa, Israel, Elbit employs 11,000 people worldwide. It supplies the military, navy and air force in the occupation of Palestine, and has profited greatly from Israel's numerous attacks and assaults on the Palestinian and Lebanese people.

For the next four years the First World War may be used to promote militarism. But to use the war to promote military spending and justify conflict is a miserable legacy for those who died. CAAT is challenging this militarism, which helps to sustain the arms trade now, by exposing the profiteering of the arms trade during the First World War, and the opposition to it that followed.

War Profiteers' News, August 2014

Just as we said during apartheid that it was inappropriate for international artists to perform in South Africa in a society founded on discriminatory laws and racial exclusivity, so it would be wrong for Cape Town Opera to perform in Israel.”

Desmond Tutu

Back in the 1980s, while studying engineering at Columbia University in New York, I was active in the divestment campaign against South African apartheid. When a fellow student cynically asked me, “Do you really think apartheid will end in your lifetime?”, my answer was, “No, I don’t. I am doing this as a moral obligation to stand with the oppressed anywhere.” But apartheid was abolished in my lifetime, and no one can take the inspiring power of that achievement away from me or from anyone around the world who contributed, no matter how modestly, to that universal struggle.

One of the most effective ways to prepare for war is to prepare the minds and bodies of young people to take part in it.

War Resisters' International's Countering the Militarisation of Youth project has launched antimili-youth.net - a great resource for anyone who wants to find out more about how young people are taught to regard armed violence, and the military and its values, as positive and uncontroversial. It is the first international site giving an overview of these issues.

It allows groups and individuals to easily upload their own information on the strategies used in different contexts to militarise young people, as well as reports on their work to disrupt these processes.

Ueberall auf der Welt begegnen Kinder, Jugendliche und junge Erwachsenen dem Militaer und militaerischen Werten auf vielerlei Weise von Soldatenbesuchen in der Schule, ueber Videospiele und die Anwesenheit von Militaer und seinen Symbolen im oeffentlichen Raum. Junge Leute werden dazu motiviert, Militaer notwendig und wertvoll zu finden; etwas, das Unterstuetzung braucht, nicht Kritik.

Samen säen: Die Militarisierung der Jugend und was man dagegen tun kann istdokumentiert mit Artikeln, Bildern, Umfragedaten und Interviews die Saaten des Krieges, die in verschiedenen Laendern ins Bewusstsein junger Menschen gepflanzt werden. Aber es werden auch die Saaten des Widerstands gegen dieses Militarisierung aufgezeigt, die von vielen Leuten unverdrossen und kreativ gesaeet werden. Es ist ein Buch nicht nur fuer Friedens- und Antimilitarismus-Aktive: Es ist ein Buch fuer Eltern und Grosseltern, Lehrkraefte, Leute in der Jugendarbeit und junge Menschen selbst.

The new handbook is available from the WRI webshop, here:

http://wri-irg.org/node/23245

At the 'Small Actions, Big Movements' conference in South Africa, War Resisters' International released the new edition of the 'Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns'. At a launch event, different contributors read from the handbook, described the inspiration behind creating a new edition, and explained their various contributions.

The handbook aims to show how a group can achieve their goals by developing a strategy (a plan as to how they will exert the necessary pressure to make change), before exploring what strategy looks like in reality. The handbook was written by over 30 people from countries all over the world, and aims to reflect and empower nonviolent activists internationally.
