Source of War Danger Opposed at NATO Summit
July 18, 2022 Demands were raised in opposition to new plans for even greater military deployments against the Russian Federation at large-scale protests in Madrid in late June. Thousands of protestors took up the slogan, "No NATO! Bases Out!" and opposed the sanctions during the events which were organized in response to the NATO Summit in Spain. Prior to the Summit, which took place from June 28 to June 30, several thousand people marched in Madrid shouting "Down with Imperialism!, "U.S. Is a War Criminal!" and condemning the fomenting of tensions orchestrated by Washington which take place on a daily basis. Other large-scale protests demanding the abolition of NATO took place outside of Spain, including in Germany, the United States and Canada.
Today, the Western imperialist powers, hanging on to the coat-tails of U.S. imperialism, declare that every country in the world must embrace the so-called "free market" system and that those which do not accept the dictates of imperialism are "pariah states." Any country which resists the dictates of imperialism or in which the people refuse to abandon their national independence and economic sovereignty becomes the target of the U.S. war program.
