Campañas: Día de las/os Presas/os por la Paz

El 1ro de Diciembre es el Día de las/os Presas/os por la Paz. Por más de 60 años, en este día, la Internacional de Resistentes a la Guerra ha dado a conocer los nombres y las historias de aquellos individuos que fueron encarcelados por tomar acciones por la paz. Muchos son objetores de conciencia, encarcelados por rehusar alistarse en el ejército. Otros han tomado acciones no violentas para interrumpir la preparación para la guerra.

Este día es una oportunidad para que usted pueda demostrar su apoyo a estos individuos y a sus causas, escribiendo a aquellos cuya libertad ha sido quitada a causa de su trabajo por la paz.

Mientras que la IRG tiene de forma permanente una Lista de Presas/os por la Paz, nosotros nos esforzamos en actualizarla para el Día Internacional de las/os Presas/os por la Paz en el 1ro de Diciembre.

The Prisoners for Peace honour roll cannot include all the nonviolent social activists imprisoned in the pursuit of peace, freedom, and justice. Every year, however, WRI highlights one such struggle-this year, the focus is on nonviolent civil resistance to military rule in Nigeria.

When news of the hanging of Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight other Ogoni activists spread to the world's press on Saturday 11 November, almost everybody shook their head in disbelief.

Every December, War Resisters' International invites sympathisers to send greeting cards to prisoners for peace. This Honour Roll includes imprisoned conscientious objectors and nonviolent activists who have tried to obstruct war preparations.

CYPRUS

There are over 100 COs sentenced to prison in southern Cyprus every year, all of them Jehovah's Witnesses. At least nine COs are facing trial at the end of November and might be imprisoned. One of them, with very poor eye-sight and a heart condition, is 53 years old. Many COs face repeated sentences, as they continue to refuse conscription once they are released. (Under a law introduced in January 1992, COs have the alternatives of 34 months unarmed service in a military camp, or 42 months civilian service.
