Welcome to the eCouncil 2010

This is our second eCouncil, and it is of course an experiment. As so many of us are now used to Facebook or Twitter, not to mention email lists, I think we should manage to make this a lively and enjoyable forum for discussion. An eCouncil is not a substitute for physically being together. Nevertheless it has some advantages, not just saving money. The principal advantage is that more people can take part, something that is vital to WRI. If there is anyone whose participation you are missing, please encourage them to register to take part.

The example of Russia

Olga Miryasova

The reference. There are two types of military service in Russia – professional army and obligatory military service. About 1,1 millions soldiers and officers serve in Russian army, about 30% of men in Russia pass through obligatory military service during their life. Until 1.01.2007 the call-up period was 2 years. Now it’s 1,5 years and it will be 1 year from 1.01.2008. Call-up age in Russia is from 18 to 27 years old.

Waging wars after peace agreements on the Balkans – gender perspective

Boro Kitanoski – Peace Action, Macedonia

Proclamation to the Serbian friends

SERBIAN MAN. Your Serbian virtue must be loyalty. Be loyal in the Orthodox Church to the God of your Holy Ancestors. Be in the St. Sava’s patriotism loyal to your Fatherland. Be in household responsibility loyal to your family. Without God, without a Fatherland, without a family, You are nobody and nothing.

Thank you for inviting me to speak here this morning!

My remarks here today are from the perspective of peace movement that holds active nonviolence as its core value since 1919, the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR).  They are largely based on the experiences of one of its programs, the Women Peacemakers Program.

Introduction I

I want to start with an autobiographical note. When I was about 13 or 14 – and the army still a long way ahead – I was quite fascinated with technology, as many young boys are. I even remember during one holiday going to a Navy open day, looking at the different Navy ships, helicopters, etc...
