Aktionsvorbereitungen während ”Stopping the War Business” (Das Kriegsgeschäft beenden) Seminar und Aktion in Seoul 2015Aktionsvorbereitungen während ”Stopping the War Business” (Das Kriegsgeschäft beenden) Seminar und Aktion in Seoul 2015

Einleitung

Ein weiteres Jahr ist vergangen, ein Jahr mit viel zu viel Tod und Zerstörung durch Kriege und Militarismus. Aber Menschen auf der ganzen Welt stehen weiter auf für Frieden und widerstehen den militärischen (Nicht-)Lösungen, dem Wettrüsten, den Ungerechtigkeiten, der ungleichen Verteilung der Ressourcen. In diesem Jahresbericht werden Sie über einige dieser Kämpfe lesen; von Kriegsdientsverweigerern, die sich weigern, Teil der Kriegsmachinerie zu sein; von Gruppen auf der ganzen Welt, die Aktionen gegen die Militariesierung der Jugend durchführen; von Friedensaktivisten, die sich treffen, um voneinander zu lernen und laufende Kampagnen und Netzwerke zu verstärken.

Welcome to four new WRI affiliates!

International Day of Nonviolence in South Sudan. Photo: ONADInternational Day of Nonviolence in South Sudan. Photo: ONADAt our eCouncil meeting this month, we were really glad to welcome four new organisations as Associate Organisations of War Resisters' International. They are:

Campaign Against Arms Trade (Britain), working to end the international arms trade and to promote progressive demilitarisation in arms-producing countries.

NESEHNUTÍ (Czech Republic): a social and ecological non-governmental organization, that works principally on the basis that ecological and social problems have shared causes and consequences which must be resolved. All our activities aim to show that social change based on respect for people, animals and nature is possible, and, most importantly must be led from below. Therefore, we support people who are interested and engaged in what is happening around them and who consider responsibility for life on our planet as an integral part of their own freedom. We work independently of party and economic interests, using strictly non-violent means.

Şiddetsizlik egitim ve arastirma dernegi (Nonviolence Education and Research Centre, Turkey): 'To achieve our dream of a nonviolent world we organize trainings, produce knowledge and share our resources. In doing so, our methods are non-hierarchical, participatory and based on solidarity and consensus. In this context, we aim to develop creative nonviolent campaigning tools and policy-making instruments, to share these instruments and to empower everyone struggling for a nonviolent world. Because we believe that a world without discrimination and oppression, where social justice exists and conflicts are solved in nonviolent ways, is possible.

VD AMOK (the Netherlands) -  a Dutch anti-militarist and conscientious objectors organization, non-governmental and non-profit, that works closely together with peace movements and peace organizations to create a peaceful, fair and stable world.

Three organisations already affiliated to WRI as Associate Organisations were also admitted as Sections of WRI. They are Alternatives to Violence Project, Nigeria; the Organization for Nonviolence and Development (South Sudan) and Žene u crnom (Women in Black Serbia).

We look forward to working more with all of these organisations towards a world without war!

Countering the Militarisation of Youth Report to E-Council 2016

In this session, we are hoping to have a discussion on our network’s youth demilitarisation work, and the links we can build up via our Countering the Militarisation of Youth (CMoY) programme.

Below you can find a brief report on a number of CMoY programme activities that I would like to be in touch with you about.

Join WRI's eCouncil: webinars on Syria, countering youth militarisation, Turkey, and more...

Every year, War Resisters' International holds an annual Council meeting - this is where some of the big decisions about our organisation get made, by the groups who make up the network. This year our meeting is happening online, and you can take part.

Webinars

We will have four "webinars" open to the public. These online seminars will explore some of the key work we have been doing this year, and discuss important events internationally. After input from our presenters, there will be time for questions and discussions. They will be recorded and made available online afterwards. All timings are in Coordinated Universal Time. Look that up here.

Colombia: las paces desde una perspectiva antimilitarista latinoamericana

Por Pelao Carvallo

Medellín años ’90Medellín años ’90Me ilusionó el sí en Colombia pese a que la idea de plebiscitar la paz me parece (y me parecía) una estrategia equivocada, tanto en lo coyuntural como en el largo plazo. Esto porque cualquier propuesta de paz debe implicar también deshacerse de la lógica de guerra que tanto favorece a los militaristas de toda orientación ideológica.

El camino electoral reproduce la misma lógica binaria del militarismo; ganadores v/s perdedores, victoria v/s derrota. Esto  fue posible porque solemos olvidar que el acuerdo de paz es producto de la negociación entre dos actores armados (las FARC –EP, fuerzas armadas revolucionarias de Colombia- Ejército del Pueblo y el gobierno colombiano) quienes aún mantienen lógicas de guerra tanto para entender el conflicto como para diseñar estrategias de salida a él.

„Mirar Morir – Watch Them Die“ – Aufführung eines Dokumentarfilms

Am 26. September 2014 wurden Studierende des Ayotzinapa Colleges in Guerrero, Mexiko, durch die lokale Polizei angegriffen. Sechs von ihnen starben sofort. Weitere 43 verschwanden in jener Nacht und sind seitdem nicht mehr gesehen worden.

Stoppt den Kreislauf der Gewalt in der Türkei: Unterschriften an die EU übergeben

Im Frühjahr 2016 hat die WRI eine neue Kampagne gestartet, bei der es um die eskalierende Gewalt in der Türkei geht. Als Teil dieser Kampagne und auf Vorschlag von AktivistInnen der WRI aus der Türkei hin hatten wir eine Petition an die EU zu Händen der Hohen Repräsentantin für Auswärtige Angelegenheiten, Federica Mogherini, gerichtet. Die Petition rief die EU auf, die Situation in der Türkei nicht aus den Augen zu verlieren und auf die eskalierende Gewalt in dem Land zu reagieren.

Stop the cycle of violence in Turkey: Signatures submitted to the EU

In Spring 2016 War Resisters' International launched a new campaign focusing on the escalating cycle of violence in Turkey. As part of this campaign, initiated in response to demands from WRI activists in Turkey, we have launched a petition addressing the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini, on behalf of the European Union. The appeal was calling on the EU not to lose sight of the situation in Turkey, and to take action on the escalating violence in the country.
