Dear readers of CO-Update.

Welcome to this summer issue of CO-Update. And summer it is while we are putting this issue together - with more than 30C in London.

But it also seems to be summer in terms of news. Since the last issue of CO-Update, we received very little news on developments regarding conscientious objection, military recruitment or conscription.

The next issue of CO-Update will appear early September - we skip August, due to holidays.
This does not mean that our work in support of conscientious objectors will take a holiday. But to continue to do this work War Resisters' International depends on your donations. We therefore kindly ask you to donate to WRI online at wri-irg.org/en/donate-en.htm.
