Ελλάδα: Να σταματήσει η στοχοποίηση του Γιάννη Γκλαρνέτατζη και η καταπάτηση των δικαιωμάτων των αντιρρησιών συνείδησης

Βρυξέλλες, 22 Οκτωβρίου 2014

Το Ευρωπαϊκό Γραφείο για την Αντίρρηση Συνείδησης (EBCO) καταδικάζει για άλλη μια φορά την απαράδεκτη πρακτική των ελληνικών αρχών να στοχοποιούν και να διώκουν αντιρρησίες συνείδησης. Το EBCO ζητά την αναίρεση της καταδίκης του αντιρρησία συνείδησης Γιάννη Γκλαρνέτατζη και την απόσυρση των κατηγοριών εναντίον όλων των αντιρρησιών συνείδησης στην Ελλάδα, χώρα στην οποία ο θεσμός της εναλλακτικής υπηρεσίας παραμένει τιμωρητικός και αποτελεί διάκριση εις βάρος των αντιρρησιών συνείδησης.

Conscientious Objection Association of Turkey: We have neither a second nor a life to give to war!

The authorities initiated a “peace process” after the Turkish state and military conducted a thirty-year-old war whichleft thousands of casualties. The process was conceptualized as a step towards constructive dialogue with the Kurdish movement. However, the state did not abandon its long lived habits of providing peace with its arms, tanks and bombs. Families lost their children and funerals never stopped although a ceasefire was announced and armed groups left the Turkish borders.
