Let us stop the War in Macedonia!!!

For ten years already, the area of the former Yugoslavia has been a theatre of war and conflict.

For as long as ten years, we have witnessed the same or similar scenes of suffering of the civilian population, regardless of their ethnicity.

It has been ten years that the ideologists of blood and territory, the creators of ethnically clean states and advocates of ethnic homogenization have been thriving on the civilian's discontent and suffering in order to survive on the political scene, amass wealth and share the spoils.

Conscientious objectors can return to Yugoslavia

Amnesty International today welcomed the provisions of the Amnesty bill - approved yesterday by the parliament of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia - which include an amnesty for conscientious objectors to military service in the Yugoslav Army.

The main provisions of the law apply to an estimated 24,000 men, including conscientious objectors and deserters who refused to take part in the conflicts in former Yugoslavia. The bill covers those who refused to take up arms, those who avoided military service or registration for service and those who deserted from the Yugoslav Army.

Informe sobre el encuentro de objetores/as

"Ni un hombre, ni una mujer, ni un centavo para la guerra"

Esta parte del informe está hecha con mucho retraso, debido a "razones objetivas" o sea, el duro periodo de represión policial a la cual fue sometido el grupo "Mujeres de Negro".

Por cierto, inmediatamente después de que terminó el Encuentro os hemos enviado varios documentos aprobados (Comunicado, Llamamiento sobre la amnistía de desertores en la RF Yugoslavia).

I REFUSE WAR!!!

War is not a "natural" state; war is not … War is, among other things, the direct consequence of militarism.

We know that the nationalist-militarist regime in Serbia survives on hatred, fear and war. We know that the obstacles and barriers produced by that regime, are strengthening insecurity and confrontation. We know that the peoples` fear is easily being used to deepen mistrust and divisions, and to build up bounders between people. We know that this can lead even to an interruption of communication.
