Peace movement plans human chain during NATO Summit

The Francophone peace movement Agir Pour La Paix (act for peace) plans a to form a human chain around the Jubel Park in Brussels during next month’s NATO summit. On 11 July the leaders of the 29 NATO member states will gather for a gala diner in the newly-renovated Museum of Art and History that is located in the park, just a stone’s throw away from Brussels’ European District.

The two-day summit will take place on 11 and 12 July.  In a press statement released on Monday, the organisation writes "Agir Pour La Paix calls on all individuals, groups and movements to take action for peace and to in their own way take peaceful action in response to the summit”.

The organisation feels that it is inappropriate that “a public museum that has a cultural function” should be used for a NATO leaders’ diner.

"We hope that the leaders of this murderous organisation wipe the blood from their shoes on the doormat before they enter the museum”, the press statement reads.
