Report from G.James WORMS, GERMANY Friday, April 16, 1999
Title: "Water instead of Bombs"
At a program in Worms, Germany, called "War in Yugoslavian -- a Political 
Dilemma, not just for the Greens", Darnell Summers, a Vietnam Veteran and 
member of the "STOP THE WAR BRIGADE" threw water into the face of Christian 
Sterzing, Green Party member of the German Parliament and the speaker for the 
Defense Committee of the Green Fraction. (see picture--anhang). Mr. Summers 
was in the middle of a speech denouncing Mr. Sterzing and the Green Party for 
their support of the war in Yugoslavia when he suddenly threw water into the 
face of Sterzing, lecturing him about how he does not know anything about 
war. When some of the Greens present protested saying, "No violence!", 
Summers then turned around and loudly said, "Violence! Your party is 
supporting the destruction and the nuclear contamination of a whole country. 
You support bombs! I say, 'Water instead of Bombs'." 
The program had been sponsered by the Green Party of Worms, due to the fact 
that about half of the party members in the area were against the war and 
wanted the local Green membership to pass a resolution demanding the 
"Buendnis 90"/Green members of the national government and parliament "to do 
their utmost to end the NATO attacks against Yugoslavia immediately."  The 
resolution was voted down, 8 to 7 by the members present.
