WRI Statement

Erklärung der Aufgaben

Die War Resisters' International (Internationale der KriegsdienstgegnerInnen) ist in erster Linie ein globales Netzwerk von Organisationen, Gruppen und Einzelpersonen, gegründet, damit sich KriegsgegnerInnen gegenseitig effektiver unterstützen können und um gewaltfreie Aktionen gegen Militarismus und Kriegsursachen zu propagieren. Die WRI ist aber auch selbst eine Organisation. Die WRI hat ein Programm, sie Initiiert Aktionen und Kampagnen, sie propagiert Gewaltfreiheit als ein Mittel sozialen Wandels, und sieunterstützt Organisationen und Einzelpersonen.

Prinzipienerklärung der War Resisters' International

Die War Resisters' International (Internationale der KriegsdienstgegnerInnen) sind ein weltweites Netzwerk unabhängiger Organisationen, Gruppen und Einzelpersonen, die die WRI-Erklärung akzeptieren:

Krieg ist ein Verbrechen gegen die Menschheit.
Ich bin daher entschlossen, keine Art von Krieg zu unterstützen und für die Beseitigung aller seiner Ursachen zu kämpfen.

Strategic Plan

Introduction


War Resisters' International began a strategic planning process in 1995 in order to become more effective at what we do. By WRI we mean the organization in its own right as well as our Affiliates. The purpose of having such a plan is to be clear about the goals WRI should be working towards, define our priorities and inspire us to carry out the spirit of the WRI declaration above.


The development of a Strategic Plan can best be described as the process of asking four basic questions:



  • What is WRI's purpose?

WRI Women's Working Group's statement on the UN World Conference on Women to be held in Beijing in 1995

The War Resisters' International Women's Working Group will NOT be attending the United Nations World Conference on Women in Beijing.

While we felt that there was much that an anti-militarist women's organisation could offer to the conference, and while we particularly want to argue against the suggestion that greater involvement of women in the armed forces can in any way contribute to work for women's rights, we are so appalled by the choice of Beijing as a location that we feel we must boycott this meeting. Some of our reasons follow:

WRI Statement on the February Ultimatum on Bosnia

When NATO announced its ultimatum threatening air strikes if Bosnian-Serb heavy weaponry was not removed from the hills around Sarajevo by February 21, WRI published an international statement urging peace groups to refuse the narrow choice between bombing or not bombing and to campaign instead for a change in attitude from their governments, for a different kind of commitment in the long term.

War Resisters' International statement on the ultimatum on Bosnia

War Resisters' International, the international pacifist organisation, will NOT be calling for demonstrations against the threat to bomb the hills around Sarajevo. In the choice between an international commitment to Bosnia-Hercegovina and disengagement, WRI favours international commitment. For us, however, the main goal of an international commitment should be to restore social life in the region: a long-term commitment not just to end the war but to build a peace.

"Institutionalised inequality of power": A WRI Statement Against Violence Against Women

The War Resisters’ International statement issued for the UN World Conference on Human Rights dealt with the Issues of refusing military conscription, the need to extend the right to asylum, and the issue of violence against women. Excerpts from the statement concerning this last issue are quoted here.

For the right to refuse military conscription, For freedom from gender violence, For the extension of the right to asylum

A statement from War Resisters' International

Peace can only be based on the recognition of human rights, be they individual and personal rights, economic and cultural rights, and group and gender rights. War Resisters' International not only opposes all abuse of human rights as violence, but particularly aims to support those asserting their human rights to organise themselves and to take nonviolent action against oppression and those acting in conscience who refuse to be agents of oppression or to take part in violence.

NO to military intervention in Bosnia

Open letter from War Resisters' International and the International Fellowship of Reconciliation to all those friends in the anti-war movement of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia, who see no alternative to military intervention in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Since the war spread to Bosnia-Herzegovina, there have been widespread calls for military intervention, even in letters from the anti-war movement in Sarajevo.
