Say NO! to War and War Preparations

Say NO! A Call For Conscientious Objection to War and War Preparations
War Resisters' International, an international network of pacifist organisations with 80 affiliates in more than 40 countries, calls for conscientious objection in view of the war preparations undertaken by NATO, Afghanistan and many other countries. Although still shocked by the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon on 11 September, we are deeply convinced that a war of retaliation will only fuel the cycle of violence. Fighting the crime of the terrorist attack with the crime of bombing and killing equally innocent people doesn't sum up to zero - it only adds to the suffering. We call for justice without war. It is the responsibility of each of us to resist war and the preparations for war.
In this situation:
War Resisters' International.
