As I am a member of the human race, I am against all kinds of assassinations, the army, and war, naturally. Moreover, I believe that, by keeping silent and not clearly stating that I am objecting, I endorse this repulsive situation. I believe that I have a responsibility towards these infamies.

I refuse to join the army based on my beliefs and moral values, which do not allow me to kill.

I am Vedat Zencir.

I am a man, who is determined not to include violence and both giving and receiving orders, in my life. I try to abide by a certain set of principles. For that reason, I stay away from institutions that clash with these principles. Since the age of 20, I get ill in the stomach when I imagine being a soldier. Giving or receiving orders is something that clash with my personality and feelings. Especially being able to murder people I do not even know, is something that I cannot accept at all.
