15th May was International Conscientious Objection Day, marked around the world as a day to celebrate those who have and those who continue to resist war, especially by refusing to be part of military structures. In Britain this year we were inspired by stories of conscientious objectors in the 1914-18 war. For more information, see http://www.wri-irg.org/15May2014
