Appeal for donations - Peace Coffee

Deserters and conscientious objectors from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus need your support

(26.03.2022) A few days ago the Quixote Coffee Collective launched a Coffee of Solidarity for the work for deserters and conscientious objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. We think this is a great idea and thank them very much. We also take this as an opportunity to call for donations ourselves: Please support deserters and conscientious objectors from Ukraine, Russia and from Belarus.

Statement: solidarity with all those nonviolently resisting the war in Ukraine

(11.03.2022) As War Resisters, we stress that we do not support any kind of war and, at the same time, we strive for removal of all causes of war.

We want to express our support and solidarity for those nonviolently resisting the war in Ukraine. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the bravery of all those arrested in Russia recently.

Call to Belarusian Men to Refuse Recruitment to Fight for Russia in Ukraine

(02.03.2022) I am requesting you to support our campaign «No Means No», dedicated to sending Belarusian soldiers to the war in Ukraine on the side of Russia, executed by the regime of Aliaksandr Lukashenka. Today a mass mobilization of Belarusian men in the age from 18 to 58 to the Belarusian army is under way: draft notices are arriving demanding to appear on March 4-9, 2022. According to an unconfirmed report received from a Belarusian military, Aliaksandr Lukashenka is planning to urgently call up for military service about 35-40 thousand Belarusian men.

US style-invasions are morally indefensible, even when other countries do it

(02.03.2022) To the Russian troops now attempting to occupy Ukraine–tens of thousands of whom are barely-trained and unwilling conscripts: Follow your conscience. Lay down your weapons. Go home, or attempt to get refugee status.

To the peoples of Ukraine: Nonviolent civilian-based defense is likely the optimal strategy for standing up to and driving out invading forces. This Russian military was designed for destruction, not occupation. They can be defeated by people-power resistance.

To the government of Ukraine: Stop forcing all men between the ages of 18-60 to fight. Respect war resisters and conscientious objectors, even in these dark times. Allow all men to seek refuge elsewhere, not just women and children.
