A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

The Fédération Anarchiste calls for total mobilization against
the war and for military desertion. Once again, without reason,
the economic and politrickal world and interests of financiers
and heads of State will win in cynicism and murder that which
all of us will lose in humanity.

No-one can be deluded about the real motives of the
self-nominated "liberators" of Iraq, of the Ivory Coast, or
indeed anywhere else. As always, it is the people who will pay
the price of the rivalries between powers - the world they are
preparing for us cares little for civilian lives, both in war
and in what they call peace, which is no other than the peace of
their interests.

Marches for peace, however sincere they may be, will never be
able to stop wars and will have no effect on what is happening
in Iraq today. How will "marching all together to refuse the
horror of war!" be of any use unless we also question the
society that produces these wars?

Calling on pacifism in order to stop this warlike surge, is as
senseless as promoting regulation or control on a system which
produces its own deregulation. Once again, behind the war,
behind all wars, lie economic interests, imperialist pretensions
and militarist appetites. There is no such thing as a just war
or a humanitarian war or "surgical strikes" which will save
civilians. The future for all oppressed people is one of death
and misery.

We have never encouraged war between people. Anarchists will
never stop denouncing and struggling against the war merchants,
the armies, nationalism, States and the economic systems which
generate oppression and the logic of war!
