USA: Southern peace activists help soldiers become conscientious objectors
(17.01.2020) The South is arguably the engine of the U.S. war machine. The region is home to Fort Bragg, the largest U.S. military base in the world. Southern states supply more soldiers than others; the region is home to three of the five states with the highest military recruitment numbers in 2016 – Florida, Georgia, and Texas. But that also means that the South has long been a center for anti-war activism. In Fayetteville, North Carolina, just outside Fort Bragg, Quaker House has been a hub for peace activists and service members seeking support since 1969.

(23.10.2019) On October 9th, Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan launched an invasion into northern Syria. As conscientious objectors and war resisters, we are against the invasion of northern Syria. End the occupation and make peace! Refuse, resist, say no, DO NOT BE A SOLDIER!
(23.10.2019) Today, exiled conscientious objectors from Turkey published a call to refuse the war in Northern Syria: “Refuse! Resist! Don’t be a soldier!” They declared: “This is an illegal war that contradicts international treaties. Those who make the decision to invade, those who participate in it, and those who offer support should know that they are committing a crime against humanity!”
