The Non-Aligned Movement Conference in Tehran August 26-31, 2012

Peace and Neutrality (PANA) Press Release

2 Sep 2012

The Non-Aligned Movement represents the vast majority of the members states of the United Nations and the vast majority of the people of the world. It supported the right of Iran to develop nuclear power for peaceful purposes.

Yet the Israeli/US/EU axis (including Ireland) continues to impose totally unjustified sanctions on Iran as outlined in PANA's booklet; 'Some Facts About Iran's Nuclear Activities'.

Hardly a day goes by that Israel threatens to go to war with Iran and has been supported by Republican candidate for the US Presidency who will spends millions of dollars to ensure his election.

Roger Cole, Chair of PANA stated:

"It is not in the interests of the Irish people that we line up behind Israel and support a war on Iran the consequences will not just be a disaster for the people of Iran, but the peoples of the world. The Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Eamon Gilmore has a constitutional obligation under articles 1,2 & 3 of Article 29 to seek the pacific settlement of international disputes. As the Leader of a party founded by James Connolly who also founded the Irish Neutrality League in 1914, he belongs to a tradition that has opposed Irish participation in Imperial Wars. We urges him to rediscover those values and do all he can to oppose the drumbeat of war being openly advocated by the state of Israel and its allies"
