website link to a interview with Frank Slijper Researcher with The Dutch Campaign Against the Arms Trade
Frank Slijper was one of the foreign speakers at a Conference on Irish Foreign Policy jointly organised by the People's Movement and the Peace And Neutrality Alliance

In this 12 minute interview by Owen McDonnell of the Connolly Media Group Frank Slijper elaborates further on points made on in his presentation on Militarisation in the EU

interviewed by Owen McDonnell of the Connolly Media Group

In the 10 minute video Murphy is asked about the imperialist, capitalist and militarist nature of the EU
One comes away from the weekend conference asking Questions is the EU really something I want my country to be part of ?

website link to interview with Filipe Ferreira Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation and the World Peace Council
Filipe traveled to Dublin to make a presentation in the Pearse Centre at the Conference entitled The EU - The Military Dimension
Filipe Ferreiras paper at the Conference simply blew open apart the myth that the EU is a force for peace in the World. He regaled us with facts and figures regarding the growth of the war industry in the EU, and his anecdotal tales from his trip to war-torn Syria illuminated a situation that is far more complex than the simple narrative we receive from the mainstream press: the goodies (united coalition of rebels) versus the baddy (the power-hungry, brutal, authoritarian leader)
The 10-minute video here was conducted by Owen McDonnell of the Connolly Media Group
