(en) Italy, anarres info: 2ND OF JULY. NO TO THE CITY OF WEAPONS! NO TO BORN IN TURIN! (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 3 Jul 2022 07:59:47 +0300

Saturday 2 July at 4 pm ---- No to war and whoever arms it - No to the Aerospace City! No to NATO in Turin - day of information and struggle in via Roma 100 in front of the San Federico gallery, headquarters of the aerospace district of Piedmont ---- Turin is betting everything on the war industry to relaunch the economy. An economy of death. Turin is already one of the major centers of the aerospace war industry. There are 350 large and small companies with a turnover of around 7 billion euros. ---- Also in Turin, the construction of the City of Aerospace is about to start, a center of excellence for the aerospace war industry promoted by the arms giant Leonardo and the Subalpine Polytechnic. The City of Aerospace, which will rise between Corso Francia and Corso Marche, will host an innovation accelerator in the field of Defense, one of the nine European nodes of the Defense Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (D.I.A.N.A), a NATO structure.
This project, which started in June 2021 in Brussels, is part of NATO's technological innovation programs for 2030. The task of the Turin hub will be to coordinate and manage, through tenders and funds made available by allied countries, the network of companies and Italian technology accelerators, to put them at the service of the Alliance's needs. Pending the construction of the Aerospace City, the innovation accelerator will be based at the OGR.
NATO invests a billion dollars in this project. A mountain of money that will be used to produce ever more sophisticated, ever more deadly technologies.
The war industry is the engine of all wars. The City of Aerospace and NATO's innovation accelerator are actively supported by the city government, the regional government and Confindustria.
They play the job blackmail card, in an increasingly poor city, where getting to the end of the month is increasingly difficult, where health, education, transport are increasingly a privilege for those who can pay.
The poor of our country, every time they go shopping, bring home less and less food, clothes, medicine, because the increase in the prices of energy and basic necessities is making our lives even more precarious. all.
In these months of war in Ukraine, thousands of people have been killed, tortured and raped, others have lost their homes and gone into exile. The Italian government has sent weapons to Ukraine, multiplied the number of soldiers employed on the borders with Ukraine and the Black Sea, increased war spending.
The spotlight on Ukraine must not distract us from the other 55 wars that bloodied the planet away from the spotlight of the media.
Italy is engaged in 40 military missions abroad, 18 of which in Africa, where the tricolor troops wage war on migrants and defend the interests of giants such as ENI.
Try to imagine how many schools, hospitals, nearby public transport could be financed if research and production were used for the life of all of us, for the cure instead of for the war.

Blocking the birth of a new pole of research, design and construction of war devices, preventing NATO from having its base in Turin is a concrete commitment against war. Against all wars.
The weapons that kill women, men and children in every corner of the planet are also built a stone's throw from our homes, a stone's throw from the garden where our boys and girls play.
A no is not enough to stop wars, rainbow flags are not enough: it is urgent to get in the way to shut down and reconvert the industries of death, to oppose the increase in military spending, to block the shipment of weapons to the war fronts.

Today we would all like to join the imperialist war between Russia and Ukraine. We are not there. We do not enlist either with NATO or with Russia. We reject patriotic rhetoric as an element of legitimation of states and their expansionist claims.
We stand alongside the people who die under bombs in Ukraine, we stand alongside those in Russia who suffer prison and repression for opposing the invasion of Ukraine.
We stand side by side with Ukrainian workers who are forced by a new law to work 12 hours a day, while bosses can also defer wages. We are against the war economy here and everywhere.
We are alongside those who, everywhere, desert the war between states, which compete for imperial dominion over territories, resources, the lives of women, men and children.
We are against war and whoever arms it, starting with the gunsmith giant Leonardo, who does good business with everyone and is about to build the city of aerospace in Turin.
We want a world without borders, armies, oppression, exploitation and war.
