No to the U.S. Military Base in Vicenza

An Entire Week of Camping, Actions, Debates, Initiatives, Rallies and Concerts
Sept 8-16, Vicenza, Italy


[Read an account of the first few days: Camping for Peace in Vicenza, Italy, and a wrap up of the final days and direct actions plus photos of the campout]

The people of Vicenza have been struggling against a new U.S. military base in their city, already home to the base at Camp Ederle as well as several other U.S. military installations, for more than a year now. (see our Vicenza Dossier for more info) The U.S. Congress has authorized the funds and the Italian government, though too embarrassed to make the announcement themselves, gave its official approval in June. But this has done little to discourage the local residents, who are as determined as ever to block construction of the new base.

If fact, the local movement in Vicenza, following two successful national demonstrations, is organizing a National Week of Mobilization, an entire week of camping, actions, debates, rallies, concerts and initiatives, from Sept 8-16. They are calling on people from all over Italy to participate and to stand firm with the people in Vicenza in their refusal to play a supporting role in the U.S. wars of aggression.

This is a critical moment, with construction set to start in the coming months. And as U.S. citizens, our participation will be particularly important. We urge as many of you as possible to participate for as many days as you can.

A camping area will be set up near the site of the new base, including showers, meals, tents for debates and a central stage. Several actions will also be planned during the week. A small daily contribution will be asked to help cover costs.

We need to inform the organizers of the number of people who intend to participate. Please contact us at info@peaceandjustice.it with any questions and to let us know:

  • if you plan to participate;
  • if you can't make it but have a tent to loan others;
  • if you would like to be part of a working group organizing our participation in this event.

See the appeal [in Italian] from the local organizers as well as logistical information on the No Dal Molin web site.

See you at the No Dal Molin Activist Campground!

Iraq Deaths Estimator
Did someone tell you that U.S. military intervention in Iraq was over? Not true: we're at it again. This time the pretext to drop bombs is "curbing ISIS" (which was created by the U.S. in the first place, to overturn al-Malaki in Iraq and then Assad in Syria, and is now out of hand. Like what happened to "our" creature al Qaeda in Afghanistan). And the death toll continues to rise...
Write your senators and tell them: "Enough! U.S. out!! Iraq has shown it can curb ISIS by itself!"
