Die WRI verurteilt die ‘schändlichen’ Angriffe auf Nazlie Bala im Kosovo

War Resisters‘ International ist schockiert über den kürzlichen heimtückischen Angriff auf die kosovarische Menschenrechtsverteidigerin Nazlie Bala. Die Männer, die ihr auflauerten und sie schwer zusammenschlugen, sind noch nicht identifiziert worden, sind aber vermutlich dieselben, die ihr die folgende Drohung sandten: „Bitte schütze nicht die Schande. Sonst töten wir Dich“.

London, Friday, 5 April, 2013

Nazlie BalaNazlie BalaWar Resisters' International - an international peace organisation founded in 1921 - is shocked and horrified by the vicious attack last week on Kosovar human rights defender Nazlie Bala. The men who lay in wait for Bala and severely beat her have not yet been identified, but presumably are those who sent her this threat: 'Please do not protect the shame. Otherwise, we’ll kill you.'

Kosovo: International pacifist organisation calls for end of prosecution of Albin Kurti

Dealing with the past in Kosov@?

Howard Clark

The past has been a battlefield in Kosovo for the past century. Since Serbia's bloody conquest of Kosovo in 1912, the rival “victim” historical narratives of the Serbian and Albanian communities in the territory have fuelled cycles of ethnic domination and sometimes atrocities. What people choose to remember or know and what people choose to honour or celebrate continue to shape the future.

A Final Internal Assessment of

Nonviolent action in conflict (non-war) situations

Several speakers were unhappy with the use of the term "non-war" in the title of this session. While situations in Israel, Yugoslavia (pre-'99) and Northern Ireland were neither full-scale war nor peace, speakers felt that the term "non-war" obscured the long-term, low-intensity nature of these conflicts
