Deserteurs en dienstweigeraars

20-12-2022 De internationale petitie die landen vraagt om deserteurs en dienstweigeraars uit Rusland, Belarus en Oekraïne bescherming en asiel te bieden, is inmiddels ca. 7000 keer getekend. Dat moet meer worden! Ondertekenen kan nog steeds. De petitie wordt gesteund door een groot aantal organisaties waaronder Vredesbeweging Pais en Kerk en Vrede.


War Resisters' International, together with Connection e.V., the International Fellowship of Reconciliation and the European Bureau for Conscientious Objection launched #ObjectWarCampaign on 21st September. Since then, we've been calling out to everyone to join this global effort to ensure the protection of conscientious objectors and deserters from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.


So far we have collected almost 7,000 signatures. Thanks to everyone who has joined our campaign. We accelerate our efforts to get more signatures before the end of this year and we need your support!


If you have not signed our petition yet, you can sign it here. We would also appreciate if you help us spread the word, share the campaign within your networks and post on social media with the hashtag #StandWithObjectors and #ObjectWarCampaign.


You can download and use the visuals that we prepared to promote #ObjectWarCampaign from here (Please fill in; User: Download / Password: StandWith). Please do not hesitate to share these materials on your social media accounts.


The petition is available on the WeMove.eu website in German, English, French, Italian and Greek.


#ObjectWarCampaign highlights the importance of opening borders to those who oppose the war at great personal risk in their countries, and calls on everyone to support those who refuse to fight and kill.


The campaign is being supported by many organisations and groups. You can see a list of them here.


Every recruit can be a conscientious objector, every soldier a deserter. Let's support those who refuse to kill and end war together!
