Green Party in England & Wales

Green Support Peace Camp at USAF Mildenhall, Suffolk.

THE GREEN PARTY WILL BE DEMONSTRATING AGAINST THE PROVEN USE OF THIS
BASE TO RESUPPLY ISRAELI FORCES AND TO REFUEL U.S AIR PLANES ENGAGED
IN RESUPPLYING OPERATIONS

Green Cllr. Rupert Read, Norwich and District Peace Council rep.,
said "We object to the use of Mildenhall to refuel U.S. planes that
bring weapons (very probably including prohibited weapons) to Israel
for its use in waging war upon Lebanon and Palestine, a war that has
most likely only been lightly interrupted by the latest developments
on the world stage. Surely the ceasefire that has recently been
brokered should be an opportunity to de-escalate the crisis, not to
supply yet more weapons to Israel, which has used its overwhelming
military force so disproportionately in the recent conflict.

"Furthermore, it is vital for us to be at Mildenhall in order to
continue the process of finding out just what exactly is going on
there, in what is in effect a bit of America on British soil -- even
the government has very little idea what is going through the base.
It is well-established that Mildenhall is being used as part of the
U.S.'s appalling 'extraordinary rendition' programme, which 'exports'
people from America to be tortured in countries like Uzbekistan."

Green Party MEP Jean Lambert, voiced her support for the
campaigners: ""Refuelling air planes and re-supplying Israeli forces
via the US base Midenhall, Suffolk seems to be yet another case of
the UK Government turning a blind eye towards unacceptable activities
simply because of the UKs sheer unwillingness to upset the USA.

During times of conflict, particularly that which has not been
sanctioned under international law, we have an obligation not to
provide support or assistance in any way. The UK Government have made
a grave error by allowing such activity to take place, especially
when we have so recently seen the huge humanitarian and environmental
costs of conflict in Lebanon.

The activities in Suffolk once again raise continuing questions over
what control we really do have over those with whom we stand shoulder
to shoulder.
