Nyt fra de tyrkiske mililtærnægtere.
===== Original Message From "Uygar Abacý" <email@example.com> =====
As you all have known since months before, IAMI was planning an
antimilitarist action which has been described as "big bang". One of
members of IAMI was going to declare himself a conscientious objector
front of the press on the 14th of May.
Now, we have just finished the action succesfully which is a result of
tiring and also dangerous months of work. This is the first massage
sent to the international antimilitarist network after our action.
Today (14.05.2000), not one but three people from IAMI declared their
objection against conscription in the antimilitarist festival in front
more than 800 people. We hope this will be a useful massage to force
public to think on conscientious objection and also hope to see a big
reaction in the Turkish media.
The first part of IAMI's project is completed, and in the following
will be waiting for the legal procedures that the new co's have to
are planning to convert the probable legal accusations, judgements in
military courts, imprisonments into a struggle campaign opposing to
obligaton of military service.
We think that the international co day is meaningfull till the last
of militarism in the world is captured by pascifists. Turkish
antimilitarists need and wait for your solidarity in capturing one of
most important castles in the world.
