Editorial

Since the 1980s, 15 May is celebrated as International Conscientious Objectors' Day. Originally coordinated by the International Conscientious Objectors' Meeting (ICOM), War Resisters' International stepped in to coordinate and promote International Conscientious Objectors' Day since ICOM ceased to meet ever since ICOM 1995 in Chad. As part of WRI's programme on The Right to Refuse to Kill, since 2002, War Resisters' International helped to established a tradition of international nonviolent direct action on 15 May in support of a certain CO struggle, accompanied by decentral activities all over the world. Focus countries or region of the last years were the Balkans in 2002, Israel in 2003, Chile/Latin America in 2004, Greece in 2005, and the United States in 2006.
This year, the focus is on Colombia, with a range of activities.
