Despite everything: Voices for an end to violence and understanding in Israel and Palestine

(17.10.2023) Hamas’s militants have invaded Israel from Gaza on October 7, 2023. "Hundreds of people were massacred in their homes and at a music festival, just entire communities decimated," reports Israeli conscientious objector Haggai Matar. It is an unimaginable horror.

Sign now petition at Bundestag: Protection of conscientious objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine

Initiative of Grüne Alternative

(20.11.2023) The right to conscientious objection is a human right. We therefore call on all politicians in the Bundestag to stand up for the protection and asylum of conscientious objectors and deserters from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. The people who have decided to say no to killing and against this war must be supported. At the same time, we call on the Bundestag to declare its solidarity with activists of the peace movement from the three countries.

UPDATES on the #ObjectWarCampaign

Week of Action – Signature Campaigns – Material – New Website – Online Webinar - Fundraising campaign

(31.10.2023) Dear friends and colleagues,

The #ObjectWarCampaign is ongoing and is developing and spreading in many countries.

We thank you for your support.

Recently we have been able to engage in specific actions of support such as the #protection4olga for Olga Karatch from Belarus and #freepeacespeech for Yurii Sheliazhenko from Ukraine. We are following up on their cases and invite everyone to continue to join international solidarity actions for them.

Following the public events organized in several countries on the occasion of the International Conscientious Objection Day, last May 15th, we have been developing further ideas and actions regarding  the #ObjectWarCampaign in support of deserters and conscientious objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.

We invite all of you to continue supporting the #ObjectWarCampaign and spreading the word.
