Tomorrow the European Summit will welcome the launch of the Permanent Structured cooperation (PESCO) and review ‘progress’ in other areas of Defence, and the European Parliament will discuss the EC proposal to fund the development phase of new military capabilities with the EU budget, as part of the European Defence Fund.
The European Network Against Arms Trade calls for a proper public debate to happen and for the voices of concerned citizens and peace groups to be taken seriously. It has published an online information tool proposing a critical analysis of the European Defence Fund.
It is targeted at citizens, activists, journalists and decision-makers alike; it aims to support them in making informed opinions,
analysis and decisions.
