The #ObjectWarCampaign, which has been campaigning for conscientious objectors and deserters from Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine for more than two years, needs your support. Here are two suggestions for campaign activities and an appeal for donations.

Weeks of Action around the International Day of Conscientious Objection on May 15, 2024

Join us: Together with more than 30 organizations, we call for action around the International Day of Conscientious Objection. So far, various activities – including rallies, vigils, talks, and many other events – have been planned in cities across Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Turkey, Lithuania and Hungary. You can find the latest information on the International Weeks of Action here:  

Declare your conscientious objection and solidarity with war resisters and share your statement in the interactive map of the newly launched #RefuseWar global action. You’re welcome to draft your own statement or to use our template and complete the sentences: „I object/refuse to …“ and „I stand for …“. You can also link a post on your social media account to the map. How easy is that? More information on: We look forward to your contribution.

Help conscientious objectors and deserters from Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. We continue to collect donations to support organizations advocating for conscientious objectors in these countries. Thanks to your generous support, we have already received around €320,000 in donations and could spend more than €290,000 on counseling structures and practical work with conscientious objectors, deserters, and war resisters. To continue this work, we ask for your help. You can easily make an online donation or use this account for bank transfers: DE47 5055 0020 0006 0853 77 (Sparkasse Offenbach). Please provide your address for a donation receipt. Thank you.
