1 December: support Prisoners for Peace

PfP KoreaPfP KoreaEvery year on 1st December War Resisters' International marks Prisoners for Peace Day, when we publicise 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. This day is a chance for you to demonstrate your support for them. We invite you to put aside some time on December 1st, or a day close to it, to send cards that express your solidarity. You can find the names and address here: http://www.wri-irg.org/inprison Write to hannah@wri-irg.org if you are planning an event for Prisoners for Peace Day.
