Prenez la paix en main. Ecoutez votre conscience et refusez la guerre.

Nous sommes des antimilitaristes et objecteurs de consciences internationaux venant d'Espagne, de Croatie, de Macédoine, de Turquie, de Finlande, de Belgique, des Pays Bas, d'Allemagne, de Grande Bretagne et de France. Nous sommes au siège de l'OTAN ce 15 mai, Journée Internationale de l'Objection de Conscience, parce que l'OTAN est un symbole de la militarisation internationale qui maintient en place un système de domination globale.

15 May is International Conscientious Objectors' Day. For War Resisters' International and its affiliates this is one important opportunity to act for the right to refuse to kill, to raise awareness for conscientious objection and against militarism.

On 6th April 2002 a new Defense law was passed in Croatia. One of the most important facts from this law is that it clearly states that civil (alternative) service will be regulated by a separate law, under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Justice (at present) or the Ministry of Labour and social welfare.

Yugoslavia passed a new law on the Yuguslav army in January 2002, but this law still doesn't include any regulation on conscientious objection. Conscientious objectors can only perform a service without arms within the Yugoslav army - clearly not satisfactory for conscientious objectors. Media reports lead to quite some confusion. Some media wrote about a "military civilian service", and some even presented this option as a genuine civilian service, so that many conscripts got quite confused.

Information about countries where prisoners have had their sentences suspended, or where sentences have been served or completed during the year are in italics.

The debate about conscientious objection - is it basically a human right, or is it an antimilitarist action? - is an old debate within War Resisters' International, but still relevant. Here, Andreas Speck, WRI staff, and Bart Horeman, WRI Treasurer, discuss this question.
