Ercan Aktaş, Turkey/France: I came to France in October 2017 and never returned

Video on YouTube channel Refuse to Kill

(15.05.2020) Hello, my name is Ercan Jan Aktaş. I am a social scientist, activist and writer. My fields of work are; violence, militarism, peace and conscientious objection. On 14th May 2005, I declared my conscientious objection together with a group of friends in Izmir. Since then I have been part of the anti-war movement. I took part in the work of a group of war resisters, the Conscientious Objection for Peace Platform and the Conscientious Objection Association. I have also written the activist work I have been part in newspapers and websites that I am an author of, and I’m continuing to do so. In May 2016, the police stormed my house where I was living with my family following a ‘social media’ operation in relation to my activist work in Turkey: Subsequently, 3 lawsuits were filed against me due to my work I was carrying out with my friends as an anti-war activist, anti-militarist and conscientious objector.

Pedro Polo

Pedro Polo, Spain: We are not soldiers, we are queers

Video on YouTube channel Refuse to Kill

(15.05.2020) My name is Pedro Polo and I am 57 years old. I declared myself an objector at the age of 19 when my country still had not approved conscientious objection. Later, at the end of the 80s I collaborated with the Conscientious Objection Movement in the Campaign for Insumisión. In these years I also became conscious of my sexual orientation and organised myself with other collectives and people forming the LGBTQI ANTIMILITARISTS. I am going to read part of the LGBTQI ANTIMILITARIST declaration, regarding the militarization of the COVID19 pandemic.
