No foreign military bases in Germany! 


Help Germany go the way of peace

Two days ago an online petition to the Bundestag, the German parliament, was published. Its goal? To add to the German constitution an article exactly like Article 5 of the constitution of Ecuador (2008) which reads:

"Ecuador is a territory of peace. The establishment of foreign military bases or foreign facilities for military purposes shall not be allowed. It is forbidden to transfer national military bases to foreign armed or security forces."

In the petition the word "Ecuador" is, quite simply, replaced with the word "Germany".

At present, Germany has more American foreign bases than any other country in the world (1) and, to date there has never been a "No-Bases" movement in Germany. However, the example of Ecuador shows us that change is possible. 

According to the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany every person - citizen or foreigner - has the right, individually or jointly with others, to address written requests to the legislature. By adding your signature and further spreading the petition, your support could prove decisive.
