London N1 2UT.6th October, at 7:30pm, at the INCA/CGIL meeting hall, 124 Canonbury Road, Since the Second World War we have witnessed to an escalation in the use of war despite agreements and conventions that refuse the war as means to solve controversies among and within nations. In the last two decades five wars have been fought by NATO countries in Europe, Asia and North Africa; western governments have justified these wars with humanitarian crisis which required sudden and effective intervention without lengthy discussions in national parliaments and taking into account the opposition expressed by several citizens. Were humanitarian needs fulfilled by these wars? Have these war improved the life of local populations? Is war an appropriate means to promote human rights and help those in need? The London branch of ANPI (Associazione Nazionali Partigiani d’Italia), the Italian antifascist organisation founded by partisans during World War (II), and Emergency UK, a humanitarian organization providing health care in areas affected by conflicts, have organised an event to discuss this topic with Prof Bill Bowring, from the School of Law at Birkbeck College (London), Claire Gripton, surgical nurse and recruiter for Emergency UK, and Carla Gagliardini, president of ANPI London.
The event will be held on (Carla Gagliardini Enrico Soresini ANPI London Emergency UK)
