To: An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar

No To An EU Army

Do not support in any way, financially or with our defence force personnel, the deepening militarisation of the EU.

Why is this important?

The EU should not be acquiring military capabilities or competences - it is not a military organisation and neutral member states such as Ireland should not be expected to support in any way a military infrastructure that is incompatible with the peaceful resolution of international disputes. Ireland should continue its tradition of peacekeeping within UN-mandated operations only and should refuse to participate in or support increasingly militaristic EU operations as well as ever growing military expenditure.
