Welcome to a conversation on the European peace movement. I'm Harry Kreisler of the Institute of International Studies. Our two guests today are Petra Kelly, a leading member of the Green Party who served from March 1983 to March 1984 as speaker of the Green Party's parliamentary group. Also joining us in the studio is General Gert Basian. Gert Bastian became an officer in the German armed forced in 1956 and rose to the position of Brigadier and Division Commander. On January 16, 1980, he resigned from the military because of his profound misgivings about NATO's decision regarding missile deployment. Since March 6, 1983, Gert Bastian has been a member of the Tenth German Bundestag as a representative of the Green Party.
