US ANTI-WAR ACTIVIST CINDY SHEEHAN AND EUROPEAN WAR RESISTERS TO GIVE
EVIDENCE AT STRASBOURG HEARING

Event: Press conference with Caroline Lucas MEP, Tobias Pflüger
MEP and US anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan: the right of
soldiers to refuse to participate in war
Place: European Parliament, Strasbourg, Press Room
Time: Tuesday, March 14th, 3pm

US anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and European War Resisters are to meet
MEPs from the European Parliament’s cross-party Peace Initiatives group
during a visit to Brussels next month.

Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey is one of the over 2,300 US and UK soldiers
killed in Iraq, will join Caroline Lucas and other Euro-MPs at a hearing on
the right of soldiers to refuse to take part in military action of
questionable legality.

Dr Lucas, co-founder and Co-President of the Peace Initiatives Intergroup,
will argue that we can’t blame soldiers for ‘simply following unlawful
orders’ if we don’t respect their right to refuse them.

She said: “The invasion of Iraq directly contravened the UN Charter, which
prohibits military action in the absence of a clear Security Council
conflict resolution or peacekeeping mandate.

“Yet individual servicemen and women – thousands of whom have lost their
lives in the deadly quagmire of Iraq – have not been permitted to refuse to
participate.

“The path to international peace and justice lies in respect for the UN and
the rule of law: this must include honouring the right of individuals to opt
out of conflicts which violate these principles, and the EU and its member
nations must ensure this right is protected by legislation without delay.”

Tobias Pflüger MEP, fellow Co-President of the Peace Initiatives Intergroup,
emphasizes the German support of the War on Iraq: “The case of Major Pfaff
clearly shows that Germany despite of the decision not to sent German
soldiers to Iraq, Germany did take part in the War on Iraq. The military
bases in Germany which where used to fight this war should be closed in
order to prevent the ongoing violations of international law.”

The hearing, which is open to all MEPs, will address the issues surrounding
individual participation in armed conflicts which are contrary to
international law or raise serious questions of conscience for those
involved.

Alongside Mrs Sheehan, the hearing will take evidence from George Solomou of
the UK’s Royal Army Medical Corps, Major Florian Pfaff of the German Army,
US serviceman Hart Viges, and German peace activist Rudi Friedrich of
Connection E.V.

Cindy Sheehan said: “Not only do we not have to love our government’s
policies. When they are evil, we have a patriotic obligation to oppose them
with all our strength.

“When the Bush administration uses white phosphorous on innocent men, women,
children and babies, when it uses illegal imprisonment and immoral torture
on fellow members of the human race, when it invades and occupies another
country that is no threat to the USA, we must say ‘No’.”

The hearing will be preceded by a press conference at 3pm.
