Video published about conscientious objector Onur Erden

16 years of persecution in Turkey - still no asylum

(08.09.2022) „If I would have completed my military service and would have participated in an operation in East, I would have killed women, childs and people of Kurds, Armenians and other nationalities, they would have rewarded me, declared me a hero. But because I refused to play the dirty game, refused to be a soldier, refused to fight, they accused me of being a terrorist.“

Today Connection e.V. published a video film about Onur Erden, conscientious objector from Turkey. For 16 years now, he has been subject to unending persecution and has therefore sought asylum in Germany.
