>>On 16th April 2005, just before the NPT Review Conference (May

>>We ask your support to make this an action with international

>>1. Signing the international support declaration,

>>organisations who find their action legal. It is as well a way to 
>>make the international support for the action visible. A list of 
>>supporting organisations will be published on www.bombspotting.be
>>
>>2. Next step is participating on 16 April 2005 in Bombspotting XL.

>>action, by mobilizing organisations to sign the support declaration, 
>>by making the action seen by your national politicians!

>>_Why a Bombspotting-action?_
>>
>>Nuclear weapons must be abolished. You would certainly agree with 
>>that. Meanwhile weapons of mass destruction are again a hot topic. 
>>At least, when so-called rogue states are supposed to have them. But 
>>also on our soil weapons of mass destruction are deployed. And they 
>>are here as illegal as elsewhere. Nuclear weapons can not be used 
>>without violating the basic principles of international humanitarian 
>>law. By consequence their use would be a war crime and a crime 
>>against humanity. Not only for so-called rogue states, but for NATO 
>>countries as well.
>>
>>Our governments threaten the rest of the world with nuclear weapons, 
>>deployed in the framework of NATO 'for our security'. By deploying 
>>nuclear weapons and training and planning for the actual use, NATO 
>>prepares war crimes. Such a policy is not acceptable and we can not 
>>leave it undisturbed. We want to stop these crimes and make sure 
>>that the demand for nuclear disarmament can not be ignored by our 
>>governments. The Nürnberg-principles, derived from the trials of 
>>nazi war criminals after the second world war, give us a legal 
>>ground and even a duty to stop the preparation of war crimes.
>>
>>The military intervention policy of the US and NATO in combination 
>>with the non-compliance by the nuclear weapon states with their 
>>disarmament obligations under the Non-Proliferation Treaty, incited 
>>several non-nuclear weapon states to think about acquiring nuclear 
>>weapons themselves. The NPT is under high pressure. El Baradei, head 
>>of the IAEA, made it clear:"In my view, we have come to a fork in 
>>the road. Either there must be a demonstrated commitment to move 
>>toward nuclear disarmament, or we should resign ourselves to the 
>>fact that other countries will pursue a more dangerous parity 
>>through proliferation."
>>
>>We want nuclear disarmament instead of a new nuclear arms race and 
>>generalized military intervention. A necessary step towards nuclear 
>>disarmament is the withdrawal of US nuclear weapons out of NATO 
>>countries and ending the role of nuclear weapons in NATO policy. As 
>>inhabitants of NATO countries it is up to us to push this issue. 
>>With the Bombspotting XL-action we make our demand for nuclear 
>>disarmament clear, two weeks before the NPT Review Conference.
>>
>>_What is Bombspotting XL?_
>>
>>Bomspotting XL is a mass action of civil disobedience in which we 
>>try to stop the preparation of war crimes by trespassing and 
>>inspecting nuclear weapon-related military bases and headquarters. 
>>In the past we have carried out actions at the airbase of Kleine 
>>Brogel (where American nuclear weapons are stored), the political 
>>headquarters of NATO in Brussels and SHAPE, the NATO military 
>>headquarters, in Mons. On 16th April 2005 we go again to the three 
>>places on the same day.
>>Since 1997, similar mass acts of civil disobedience have created 
>>political pressure in Belgium for the removal of nuclear weapons. 
>>The fact that nuclear weapons can not be used without violating 
>>international humanitarian law is used as juridical legitimation for 
>>mass inspections of nuclear weapon related places. Up to 2000 people 
>>participated in these actions, which led to 500-1000 arrests in each 
>>action over the past few years.
>>With these actions we grabbed a voice in the Belgian political 
>>debate, which we would not have if we limited ourselves to lobbying. 
>>The Belgian political establishment is forced to debate the nuclear 
>>policy and can not neglect the issue anymore. Grabbing a voice is 
>>not enough, you also have to speak. With our lobby work we were able 
>>to focus the political debate and to raise the essential questions. 
>>But we are limited in our ability to speak to Belgium, while the 
>>action in itself could have a European impact. So we look for 
>>partners in other NATO countries to raise the political impact of 
>>these actions and to make this an European action. We invite groups 
>>and individuals to participate in the campaign and the Bomspotting 
>>XL-action.
>>
>>Trespassing on a military base without permission is a crime 
>>according to Belgian criminal law, but we think our action is 
>>legally justified because this action is necessary to stop the 
>>preparation of war crimes. Until now, the Belgian courts have not 
>>sentenced anyone for these actions but have instead declared 
>>themselves incompetent.
>>Our actions are strictly nonviolent, and we want to keep them this 
>>way. The legal framework in which we operate legitimises our action 
>>but it cannot be used to legitimise everything. Since we base our 
>>action on legal arguments, we have to respect the limits implied in 
>>them. Finally we try to get as broad support as possible for a 
>>change in NATO strategy. We want our action to be seen as something 
>>in which a lot of people can imagine themselves participating. So, 
>>in this action there is no space for any sort of violent act.
>>
>>We invite international participants to come to Belgium for the 
>>period 15-17 April. Accomodation is organised in Gent from the 
>>evening of 14 April (exact place will be revealed on the website a 
>>couple of days before the action). On 15 april we offer nonviolent 
>>action training and prepare the action. Contact us if you come, so 
>>we can arrange accomodation!
>>While international participation is welcome, even more important is 
>>to make it seen internationally and in your home country. We like 
>>you to organize press work around your participation in the action, 
>>as well mobilizing organisations to sign the support declaration. 
>>You can do this in co-operation with your national 
>>Bombspotting-contact, and in case such contact does not exist yet 
>>you are invited to help organizing one.

>>We hope to see you on 16th April in Belgium!
