Istanbul: The Conscientious Objection Association of TurkeyIstanbul: The Conscientious Objection Association of Turkey

Nach einem regionalen Treffen von Kriegsdienstverweigerern und Antikriegsbewegungen aus der östlichen Mittelmeerregion Ende Januar wurde der zypriotische KDVer Murat Kanatlı, der das Treffen mitorganisiert hatte, für zehn Tage in Haft genommen. Solidaritätsaktionen fanden in der Türkei, Griechenland und Israel (durch drusisch-palästinensische Verweigerer) statt. In Athen wurden AktivistInnen wegen ihres Protests an der türkischen Botschaft vorübergehend festgenommen. Hier kannst Du ein Video der AktivistInnen in Istanbul ansehen.

'We will never under any circumstances be a piece in this sexist, racist, militarist system, neither as a village-guards nor as soldiers'

Kill Militarism (Turkish)Kill Militarism (Turkish)December saw 45 Kurdish men and women in Turkey declaring their conscientious objection 'in order to remember the 34 young men killed in the Roboski massacre two years ago', through the Roboski Conscientious Objection and Amed (Diyarbakir) Conscientious Objection Initiatives. The death of 34 young men occurred at the Turkish-Iraqi border, when two Turkish F16 jets fired at a group of villagers, claiming to act on information that PKK (Kurdish Workers' Party) militants were crossing the border. Faruk Encü, making a statement in the name of the Roboski Conscientious Objection Initiative, said “Here we are calling once again on those village-guards that have been made into a part of this militarist process, to those who are sending those close to them and their children to do military service, and to those people who are part of this war-making machine to make a few cents. Reject taking up arms for a sexist structure that has his turned this region into a graveyard of peoples, and if you have already taken up arms immediately correct this wrong.

Kriegsdienstverweigerung wird allgemein im politischen Diskurs wenig erwähnt, geschweige denn als Thema für eine Ausstellung.

Darum war es ermutigend, -und für London gewiss einmalig- , dass Filmpro – eine “von Menschen mit Behinderung geführte Filmagentur” – im Mai Kriegsdienstverweigerung (insbesondere Kriegsdienstverweigerung in der Türkei) zum Thema einer zweiwöchigen Ausstellung in einer Galerie im Osten Londons machte (http://www.filmpro.net/conscription)

Young people in Turkey besieged by militarism: Past and present

Serdar M. Değirmencioğlu

Militarism has a long history in Turkey. It is therefore surprising that there are very few studies in the Social Sciences and in Education on how the militarisation of young people has operated. With a few exceptions, social scientists have remained silent when it comes to questioning the military and the way militarism has been instilled in young people, one generation after another.
