Kampagnen: Internationaler Tag zur Kriegsdienstverweigerung

Jedes Jahr am 15. Mai begehen wir den Internationalen Tag der Kriegsdienstverweigerung (KDV-Tag) - ein Tag, um diejenigen zu ehren, die sich dem Krieg widesetzt haben und sich ihm noch immer widersetzen, vor allem durch die Weigerung, in den militärischen Strukturen mitzuwirken.

Wenn Sie beim KDV-Tag mitmachen möchten, kontaktieren Sie uns.

It is only recently that the term "nonviolent direct action" appeared in Korean society. Still, there are many misunderstandings about nonviolence and many people find direct action as a way of protest bizarre. Conservative media suggest that while nonviolent direct action had its place during the dictatorship, it is not legitimate in a democracy. However, after last year's candlelight rallies against the government decision to import US beef, the call for nonviolence is now better known in Korean society.

The extremely difficult situation of conscientious objectors in South Korea has so far not been known to a broader public. Until only a few years ago, it has not even been known to those working on conscientious objection internationally, including War Resisters' International.

Conscientious objection in South Korea has a long history. The total amount of time during which Korean COs, mostly Jehovah's witnesses, have spent in prison for the past 50 years far exceeds ten thousand hours. Some people died while suffering from violence and torture during the military regime, and some people had to spend more than 7 years in prison. It was, however, only in early 2001 that conscientious objection became known to the Korean public. After that, it caused controversies in Korean society and became a big issue. At first, COs had to counter numerous criticisms and rebukes, feeling even bigger psychological frustrations than before. [1]

Presently, more than 420 conscientious objectors are in South Korean for their
conscientious objection to military service. About 100 conscientious objectors are facing trials without being detained. It has to be expected that most will receive a prison sentence of 18 months.

Since 2001, War Resisters' International has coordinated international activities around 15 May - the International Day of Conscientious Objection. The day began in 1982 as European CO Day, but since 1986 has been celebrated as International Day of Conscientious Objection.
War Resisters' International sees activities around 15 May as an opportunity for conscientious objection activists to share their experience, and learn from each other's struggles and campaigns. Since 2002, these activities include an international event, often with a nonviolence training and a nonviolent action as major parts.

15 May – International Day on Conscientious Objection

30 Apr 2008
Deutsch

Der 15. Mai ist der Internationale Tag der Kriegsdienstverweigerung. Diese Ausgabe des Zerbrochenen Gewehrs gibt eine Einführung der WRI in das Thema für 2008: KDV für BerufssoldatInnen und Strategien gegen militärische Rekrutierung. Beide Themen stehen in engem Zusammenhang: mit dem Trend zur Abschaffung der Wehrpflicht benötigen zumindest die Militärs des Westens in wachsendem Maße professionelle, "freiwillige" SoldatInnen.
