Jürgen Grässlin has distinguished himself as one of the biggest armament opponents in Germany for years. He is federal spokesman of the Deutsche Friedensgesellschaft - Vereinigte Kriegsdienst-gegnerInnen (DFG-VK), spokesman of the Kritischen AktionärInnen Daimler (KAD), chairman of the RüstungsInformationsBüro (RIB e.V.) and spokesman of the current campaign »Aktion Aufschrei – Stoppt den Waffenhandel!«, which was awarded the Stuttgarter Friedenspreis in November 2012. He is the author of numerous critical non-fiction books about arms exports and also about military and economy policy, including international bestsellers. In 2011 Grässlin was awarded the Aachen Peace Prize.
