Against Arms Exports
Many people are annoyed by the fact that there are numerous wars conducted worldwide with German arms technology. German weapons are delivered to regimes which suppress their population and violate human rights. German military goods are sold to poor and instable countries. Sometimes the German government provides active support to make these deals happen, for example through export credit guarantees. The money paid for German military goods is subsequently missing for urgently needed investments (for example in health care and education).
For many decades grass roots initiatives have been working to improve and tighten the controls on German and international arms trade.
At the international level there are i.a. the following umbrella organisations
