Campañas: Día de las/os Presas/os por la Paz

El 1ro de Diciembre es el Día de las/os Presas/os por la Paz. Por más de 60 años, en este día, la Internacional de Resistentes a la Guerra ha dado a conocer los nombres y las historias de aquellos individuos que fueron encarcelados por tomar acciones por la paz. Muchos son objetores de conciencia, encarcelados por rehusar alistarse en el ejército. Otros han tomado acciones no violentas para interrumpir la preparación para la guerra.

Este día es una oportunidad para que usted pueda demostrar su apoyo a estos individuos y a sus causas, escribiendo a aquellos cuya libertad ha sido quitada a causa de su trabajo por la paz.

Mientras que la IRG tiene de forma permanente una Lista de Presas/os por la Paz, nosotros nos esforzamos en actualizarla para el Día Internacional de las/os Presas/os por la Paz en el 1ro de Diciembre.

Each year on 1st December War Resisters' International and its members mark Prisoners for Peace Day, when we make known the names and stories of those imprisoned for taking action for peace. This day is a chance to demonstrate your support for them.

There are some changes in this list from previous years. In October, all but one Jehovah's Witness conscientious objectors in Turkmenistan were freed from Seydi Labour Camp. This is great news for those people. However, it does not mean that COs who are not Jehovah's Witnesses will not be imprisoned in future, and conscription itself is still in full flow.

1st December is Prisoners for Peace Day. For over 60 years, War Resisters' International have, on this day, made known the names and stories of those imprisoned for actions for peace. Many are conscientious objectors, in gaol for refusing to join the military. Others have taken nonviolent actions to disrupt preparation for war.

Since the 1950s, 1 December is celebrated as Prisoners for Peace Day, to highlight the plight of those who face imprisonment for the nonviolent actions for peace - be they conscientious objectors or direct action activists.

While WRI has a permanent Prisoners for Peace list on its website, we make a special effort to update it for Prisoners for Peace Day, and call on everyone to write cards or letters to prisoners.

We ask you to:

Querido/a amigo/a de la Internacional de Resistentes a la Guerra,

El histórico trabajo de la IRG apoyando a objetores/as de conciencia en la cárcel y otros/as prisioneros/as por la paz puede parecer rutinario, pero es indispensable y se presenta como un gran desafío. Siendo parte de los que una vez estuvo en la lista de Prisioneros/as por la Paz de la IRG, puedo atestiguar lo importante que fue recibir esa gran cantidad de mensajes de personas de todas partes del mundo, que me levantaron el espíritu mientras estuve tras las rejas. En ciertas ocasiones los riesgos son mucho más altos, y este es el caso del objetor de conciencia egipcio Maikel Nabil Sanad, quien se encuentra actualmente en prisión por publicar en su página web un artículo criticando al ejército egipcio. Maikel desde el 23 de agosto se encuentra realizando una huelga de hambre.

For more than 50 years, War Resisters' International has publicised the names and stories of prisoners of peace on 1 December - Prisoners for Peace Day.

Action

  • On 1 December, put aside at least one hour and write at least four cards to prisoners;
  • Get your peace group or class or meeting place to organise a card-writing session;
  • Set up a stall in your town centre, perform a bit of street theatre, or do whatever else it takes to attract attention and interest.

Sending cards and letters

History repeats itself, the same way I objected to compulsory military service last year, this year I boycott litigation before the military officers.

Mr Officers… I say Mr Officers and not Mr Judge, because the judge before anything has to have the characteristic of independence, whereas military officers are a branch of the executive authority. That’s why you are an officer, not a judge, no matter what names, titles or descriptions you were called.

When I started my hunger strike since nearly 40 days, many people tried to convince me to end my strike... Of the most opinions I heard was the religious point of view, which is summarized for: the hunger strike is a type of suicide, the one who commits suicide is an infidel, the church doesn’t make a prayer on strikers if they died, their destiny is eternal torture... It’s funny that the religious Christians and religious Muslims, together, had the same point of view.

Since 23 August, imprisoned pacifist blogger and conscientious objector Maikel Nabil Sanad is on hunger strike in protest against his continued imprisonment. On 30 August, he escalated his hunger strike to include a thirst strike.
