Openning plenary at the antimilitarism in movement conference
Reflections from Antimilitarism in Movement

From July 30th to August 1st 2019, activists from across Colombia, Latin America and the wider world gathered in Bogota for the Antimilitarism in Movement conference, a three day gathering to explore the intersecting experiences of war and militarism - and our movements’ resistance to militarism – from around the world.

At WRI's recent conference and meeting in Colombia, we were delighted two welcome six new affiliates to our international network.

In August 2019 we were excited to welcome a new affiliate to our international network - Pasifika, based in West Papua. In late August the Indonesian military began a violent crackdown in West Papua, prompting a mass nonviolent response across the region.

War Resisters' International relies on donations from generous individuals around the world. We are currently looking for 25 new regular supporters to support our work in the future – could you be one of them?
