The Network engages in actions at local level, then comes together for international gatherings to share our analysis of militarism and strategies of resistance. We believe in developing each country group’s own perspective and strength, as that will strengthen the the Network as a whole.
Currently we are involved in resisting increased military build-up in all our countries, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, due to the Asia-Pacific Pivot. This includes the building of new bases, expansion of existing bases, military recruitment, the militarization of the police, and increased military spending.
