August protest action at Büchel Nuclear Base
About 180 US nuclear bombs are still being stored in Europe for use by NATO in the event of a nuclear strike, although it is not clear who against. 20 of these nuclear bombs - left over from the Cold War - are deployed in Büchel in South Eifel (Rheinland-Pfalz), Germany. The organisers of this protest action invite you to come to Büchel on August 11/12 to demand, just prior to the general election, that the German government sticks to their 2009 promise of withdrawing these weapons, and also works for a complete ban on all nuclear weapons worldwide. The other host countries in Europe – Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey – would draw strength from a German decision to become nuclear weapon-free.
