Initiative Universities for Peace – Yes to the Civil Clause
The initiative “Universities for Peace – Yes to the Civil Clause” was founded in May 2011. n it, trade unions, student and scientific, as well as peace organizations, advocate civilian universities as a place for studies, teaching, and research, where meaningful contributions are made to the peaceful resolution of the world’s problems and conflicts.
The increased distribution of military research and teaching at universities does not contribute to the well-being of the people. The initiative fights for universities that are exclusively dedicated to peace in science, research, and teaching. This requires a broad discussion about the social responsibility of science.
The initiative “Universities for Peace – Yes to the Civil Clause” wants to strengthen the peace movement at universities.

Learning for Peace
With this campaign, we oppose the militarization of schools and universities and advocate for civic education and science. We want to encourage everyone to work for an education system and a society characterized by education, solidarity, and argumentation instead of the warlike enforcement of political and economic interests. Through petitions, we call on schools and universities to commit to a strictly civilian orientation. The state governments should enable a civilian orientation of education and science that serves peace.

Lüneburger Aktionsbündnis gegen Atom (LAgA)
How dramatic the real result of a more critical and fundamental safety assessment can be is shown by an already existing report from the IPPNW It concludes that all German nuclear power plants do not meet the safety requirements under numerous criteria. It does not matter whether 6, 7, or 8 nuclear power plants are taken off the grid. The fact remains that the residual risk of even a single nuclear power plant remaining in operation, and thus of a possible super shutdown, is no longer justifiable from an ethical point of view. There is no need for an ethics committee to recognize this. The human suffering in Chernobyl and Fukushima shows us what this residual risk means for the people living there and for our actions.
From an ethical point of view, only the immediate and final decommissioning of all nuclear power plants brings complete safety for mankind! We must not wait until 2021 but act now.
