Neutrality of petition assured for TikTok viewers.

Neuer Petitionstext:

This is a call to action adressed to Madam von der Leyen:

The E. C. is called upon to ban all deliverydeliveries of arms from allthe 27 member states of EU that are made directly or indirectly (e.g. via transit countries) to RU or UA for armed conflicts.

An arms export embargo for these states similar to the one that existed in the three decades ago (

is also necessary!

The E.U. is a peace project. Warmongering has no place here!

We urge the insitutioninstitution to reach out its hand and stand up for peace talks like Israels Naftali Bennett tried last year ago.

We explicitly do not want the continent to sink back into chaos and perish!

Neue Begründung:

Over the last two decades, the EUE.U. has repeatedly been known as a peace project.

Freedom of travel was often praised. But: Whatever one's opinion of the European community of values the time of the peace project and the freedom of travel are seriously endangered!

The European UnionE.U. is threatening to collapse and slide into war! It makes no big difference whether former EU states or non-EU member states participate in the CEE region with arms supplies or not. However, it must NEVER be tolerated that weapons are being supplied from EU to warwarring parties no matter what kind.

Although it has always been saidtold that we don't do such things. As an exampleexample, the EUEuropean Union should not be a debt union. Now the European Commission is again acting outside the self-imposed rules and interfering in a conflict of two neighbouring states of the post-Soviet space.

The European UnionE.U. introduced a "European Code of Conduct on Arms Exports" in 1998.

In August 2022, Amnesty International (a non-profit organization that promotes human rights) stated that the Ukrainian army was "[...]Using hospitals for military purposes[...]" which "[...]is a clear violation of international humanitarian law[...]".

It should be said that Amnesty International has already pointed out violations of international humanitarian law with regard to the USA, China (e.g. capital punishment) and Russia (war related) where misconduct had been reported aswellas well by Amnesty.

ThereforeTherefore, this organization can be considered neutral.

To come back to the code of conduct: One of the criteria, that had been defined by the EUE.U. statetsstates was "2.  Criterion Two: Respect for human rights in the country of final destination as well as respect by that country of international humanitarian law.".

How can it therefore be justifiable to supply weapons to this country?

This isclearly clearlyseems to be a violation of the EUE.U. Code of Conduct on Arms Exports.

Is thatviolating the own codex clever? Shouldn't one at least honestly ask the people (hold a referendum) before setting such actions?

The purpose of this petition is to give citizens ofin E.U. living all over the entire European Unionworld the opportunity to vetostop the decisioncurrent situation and to remind the Commission that the member states have committed themselves to keepingmaintain theand peace.maybe even embrace peace!

GermanyBut there's more to take into account before to decide what is sendingright tanksand to Ukraine now. But not onlywhat is Russia threatening Germany for this behaviour as President Putin is been reminded of WW2 whereas President Zelensky demands more weapons.One Twitter-quote in the direction of Germany goes:"[...] 78 years after 1945 a German leader is, in a devious way, supporting genocidal Nazi aggression" .The neutral Austrian government decided to provice the government in Kyiv with 5 Million euros officially for infrastructure.wrong:

Corruption also is a big problem unluckily in the mentioned statesstates(UA ofaswell Russiaas and Ukraine.RU).

E.g. , the NGO "Transparency International" pointed out recently:

"TransparencyTransparency International ranked Ukraine 120th116th out of 182180 countries in terms of corruption, landingRussia itwas inranked the137th secondout spotof in180 Europecountries in 2018."countries.

Great BritainBritain, former EU-member state is delivering uranium rounds to UkraineUA as part of an aid package.

Armor piercing weapons containing depleted uranium – bombs or grenades are weapons that are still accessible in various countries of the world, despite the questions about the legality of their use in past war /war like conflicts e. g. In former Yugoslavia.

Currently only a hand full of European Union member states are not sending any weapons directly to RussiaRU or Ukraine.UA.

Never before from my point of view has the participation for a war in every single state of the European Union been so numerous as this time! I find the news coming in day after day making people like myselfe more and more anxious really alarming!

We are NOT affiliated to any political organization thus independant human beings that alarming.just want peace!

How do you see it? Will you support us to make a difference? Its urgent! Therfore together #letsstopawar .
