AMN plan to “shut down” November NATO Assembly

By Kane Mumford

THE EDINBURGH based Anti-Militarist Network have stated that they plan to form a ‘NATO Welcoming Committee’ at Edinburgh’s EICC where top military ministers from eight countries will meet to discuss Afghanistan and Iran.

The group, which has links to other anti-militarist and nuclear disarmament organisations has said that it respects human life and that the protest would be peaceful. These comments come amid criticism of the content of the Welcoming Committee website, which contains links to sites which give instructions on roadblocks and to detailed floor plans of the EICC.
