EBCO criticises failure of European institutions to implement the right to co

Regression and political lack of interest

(14.02.2020) In its Annual Report on Conscientious Objection to Military Service in Europe 2019, the European Bureau for Conscientious Objection (EBCO) red-flags the multiple discriminations that conscientious objectors to military service continue to undergo in Europe.

Türkiye: Libya Tezkeresinin destekçisi olmayın!

(14.01.2020) Libya’ya asker gönderme tezkeresi TBMM’nin 2 Ocak tarihli oturumunda kabul edildi. Bu tezkere Libya’daki savaş ve iç çatışmayı büyütür. Türk hükümeti bir süredir doğu Akdeniz ve Libya’daki savaşı körükleyen adımlar atıyor. Türkiye bu tezkere ile Libya’da gelişebilmesi muhtemel barış girişimlerini yok ediyor. Vicdani Redçiler ve savaş karşıtları olarak TBMM’nin kabul ettiği tezkereye kesinlikle karşıyız ve bu tezkereyi kabul etmiyoruz. Herkesi bu tezkereye tavır almaya çağırıyoruz. 

Turkey: Do not be a supporter of the military deployment to Libya!

(14.01.2020) The Turkish Grand National Assembly approved a bill to deploy troops to Libya on 2 January. This bill fuels the war and internal conflict in Libya. The Turkish government has been taking steps that inflame the war in the eastern Mediterranean region and Libya for a while. With the bill, Turkey is destroying peace. As conscientious objectors and war resisters, we are absolutely against the bill approved by the Turkish Grand National Assembly. We invite everyone to take a stand against it.
