EU winning the Nobel Peace Prize a sick joke

News that the EU has won the Nobel Peace Prize is the sickest joke since US secretary of state Henry Kissinger won it in 1973 while overseeing the fascist coup in Chile and authorising the secret bombing of Laos, No2EU said today. No2EU chair Bob Crow said that to award the peace prize to an organisation behaving like colonial overlords in Greece, Spain and Portugal and elsewhere was ludicrous and deeply cynical.

“EU austerity policies, which even the IMF is now baulking at, is causing mass unemployment, record suicide rates and permanent economic decline in these countries in order to shore up a dying currency, the euro,” he said.
Another no2eu member said how the war of destruction of Yugoslavia that was triggered by the EU backed German led recognition of Croatia represented 70 years of peace in Europa is quite bizarre.

No2EU convenor Brian Denny said that while the EU was falsely claiming that it had kept the peace in Europe it was creating an economic desert for millions of workers.

“EU institutions sparked the war in Yugoslavia in 1992 when John Major agreed to illegally recognise Croatia, following massive German pressure, in return for an opt-out of the euro,” he said.

Trump has said if they manages to keep the death toll to 100,000, they’d be doing a “very good job.” Instead of protecting US citizens, his administration launches a campaign of misinformation & anti-China conspiracy theories blaming China for Covid19.

Economically speaking we would expect food prices to go up Overall social cost of production is higher since the social wage has necessarily gone up Millions of workers are not working & yet, strangely for capitalism they are paid, albeit less than before

We are living in difficult times, being encouraged to socially distance ourselves. It is essential that our union organisation remains intact.
