‘No 2 NATO, No 2 War’ Online Event, a Prelude to August 6 Demonstrations

Aug. 3, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—A prelude to the worldwide August 6 events was an internet broadcast today, “No to NATO, No to War,” from the U.K.’s “No to NATO” group, which featured Helga Zepp-LaRouche of the Schiller Institute, Americans Angela McCardle of the Libertarian Party National Council and journalist Dan Kovalik; Guyana’s former President Donald Ramotar; former British Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford; and Scottish independent journalist David Clews.

In the event Helga Zepp-LaRouche took on Germany’s Green Party membership with a challenge to leave their party—supposedly founded on a commitment to peace, and now aggressively pushing any war or military threat against Russia or China—and to join the Humanity for Peace mobilization. Zepp-LaRouche had established that the ostensible reason for NATO’s “Ukraine” war on Russia is an entire era coming to its comeuppance: the end of 500-600 years of colonialism; and that stopping and reversing the war is only possible through European cooperation with the Global South in a new security and development architecture.

This driving idea was unique in this forum, which prompted host Chris Williamson to ask Ramotar and Clews to respond to Zepp-LaRouche, which they did energetically. Ramotar responded, “In all of these negatives” of war and the threat of nuclear war “is developing a positive.... A new system is being created.”

Kovalik at the conclusion called on everyone to “Get out in the streets on Sunday” at the UN rally. And Williamson then announced the “No to NATO” rally in London on August 6, at Whitehall beginning at 1:00 p.m. London time (GMT+1; in EDT, 8:00 a.m. in the U.S., GMT−4).
