Riesige Maschinen schneiden Wunden in die Erde, und Tränen laufen über meine Wangen. Die Polizei hat die örtliche Bevölkerung, Sami und Aktivisten, aus den Weg geräumt.

Ich weine vor Zorn, Trauer und Verzweiflung, aber nicht aus Hoffnungslosigkeit. Nicht im geringsten. Der Kampf für Gállok und die Sami ist noch lange nicht vorbei. Er hat gerade erst begonnen.

Wir unterstützen die Kriegsdienstverweigerungserklärung von Hilal Demir. Sie wurde zuerst veröffentlicht in Women and Conscientious Objection - An Anthology (Frauen und Kriegsdienstverweigerung - Eine Anthologie)

----------------------------------

Ich möchte nicht in einer Welt leben, die sexistisch, hierarchisch, autoritär, militaristisch und patriarchalisch ist.

Ich möchte nicht, dass sie mir ihre systemgestützte Schulbildung geben ...

Ich möchte nicht, dass Menschen in Kriegen sterben, weil sie getäuscht werden.

Ich möchte nicht, dass ich beweisen muss, dass ich ein vollständiges, intelligentes Wesen und Individuum bin - nur weil ich eine Frau bin.

Ich möchte nicht die Kriegspolitik des Staates und ihre Lügen einfach beiseite schieben.

Ich möchte nicht, dass das Militär Dummköpfe ausbildet, die in den Kriegen sterben ...

Ich möchte nicht, dass die Leute für mich entscheiden, ohne mich zu fragen ...

Ich möchte nicht, dass militaristischen Konzepte und Verhaltensweisen in unseren Bewegungen sind ...

Ich möchte nicht unter den patriarchalischen Regeln und Verhaltensweisen leben, die in mein Privatleben eindringen.

Ich möchte nicht, dass irgendjemand die sexuelle Identität von Menschen bestimmt.

Ich möchte nicht von Zuordnungen wie "Mutter", "Frau", "Tochter", "Freundin" bestimmt werden, nur weil ich eine Frau bin ...

Ich möchte nicht durch Grenzen eingezäunt leben müssen ...

Ich möchte nicht töten und getötet werden ...

Und ich lehne all das ab, indem ich meinem Gewissen zuhöre ...

Denn ICH MÖCHTE frei und glücklich leben, in einer Welt, in der es keinen Krieg oder jede Art von Gewalt gibt, anti-autoritär und ohne Grenzen.

Und Du?

Hilal Demir, 2005 Izmir

On July 13, 2016, non-governmental organisations in Venezuela filed an appeal to the Supreme Court of Justice for the partial annulment of the Law of Registration and Enlistment for the Integral Defence of the Nation, which establishes an obligation to enroll on the Military Register, on grounds of unconstitutionality.

The judicial action sought to reverse the unconstitutional ramifications of the law, which limits Venezuelans' right to free self-development, equality before the law and freedom of conscience and association, as well as affecting rights to work and education.
