Day of Action against Nato – Merthyr

This Wednesday (9th July) there will be a day of anti-militarist outreach and actions in Merthyr Tydfil town centre, with local people and activists from South Wales Anarchists, Stop NATO Cymru and No Nato Newport uniting to raise awareness of why we will protest this September’s NATO Summit, why Nato’s expansionist agenda must be challenged and how we intend to do this.

This will be followed by a joint meeting of Stop NATO Cymru and South Wales Anarchists in the Canolfan Soar community centre.

Merthyr is a community which recently suffered cuts to some of its most vital services, with £15 million worth due to be made in oncoming years. Although figures on the exact cost of the NATO Summit – the 10,000 police due to descend on the city and the day-to-day cost of NATO membership itself – are curiously difficult to find, what we do know is that endless trillions is spent on imperialist powers fighting each other while ordinary people from Merthyr to the Middle East suffer under deprivation, poverty and the daily grind that keeps the system going.

All are welcome to come and help distribute leaflets, talk to the public or just to find out more information about our campaign.

Meet at 11:00AM, outside Specsavers for leafleting – 126 High Street, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8BT

Meet at 16:00PM at Canolfan Soar for the meeting – http://www.theatrsoar.co.uk/your-visit/how-to-get-to-canolfan-soar/

See you on the streets!
