Peace Appeal „Stop Ramstein! No Drone War!

In our article "In Ramstein anklopfen!" we had pointed out the human rights violations, responsible by the US military bases in Germany. Already in April we had asked for the role of US bases in Killing people by drones "Steinmeier nach Rolle bei Drohnen-Tötungen gefragt" and got no real answer.

On Nachdenkseiten yesterday there was an interview with Mohssen Massarrat from the scientific council of Attac and the CEO of IALANA Rainer Braun who supports the apeal as well - worth of reading.

Please see the appeal with first signatories and sign it.

The US Air Force base at Ramstein, Germany, is a central pivot for preparing and executing wars of aggression violating international law. Most of the lethal missions of US combat drones, e.g. in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, and Africa, are conducted via Ramstein’s satellite relay station.

US drone pilotes from a multitude of military bases use Ramstein for operating killer drones in illegal war missions around the world. In Ramstein itself, about 650 personnel continuously analyze, update and pass on data from the surveillance of alleged targets.

With drones, the US government has extrajudicially killed almost 5,000 people in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia as well as more than 13,000 in the war in Afghanistan. US drones have killed countless victims in Iraq, Syria, and Libya. The large majority of the victims were innocents such as women, children, and old people. The orders to murder are transmitted from joysticks via Ramstein’s satellite relay station to the specific drones. Without Ramstein, the whole drone war would be obstructed decisively sine die.

The appeal calls the German parliament and government

  • to ban the US from using Ramstein as the basis of their drone wars by law;
  • to close down Ramstein’s satellite relay station;
  • to renounce the purchase of combat drones for the Bundeswehr;
  • to proscribe the acquisition of combat drones for military;
  • to end the illegal spying of NSA, in cooperation with the German intelligence agency BND, for which Ramstein is a focal point;

and calls for a demonstration and rally in front of Airbase Ramstein on September 26.
