Nonviolence

Conscientious objection is one important aspect of nonviolence and antimilitarist action. I myself refused to perform military and substitute service in 1986, and got some trials which lasted until 1991.

This section contains some articles I wrote, and gives some information on the field of nonviolence and antimilitarism. I try to expand this section step by step

Antimilitarism and gender – the challenge of integration

Talk by Andreas Speck, staff at War Resisters' International, at the launch of Cynthia Cockburn's book ‘Antimilitarism: Political and Gender Dynamics of Peace Movements’ at Housmans Bookshop, 21 April 2012


First of all I want to thank Cynthia for giving me the opportunity to say something today, although I haven't read the whole book yet.


I am familiar with her research, as WRI is one of the organisations which were part of her research. I think we very much welcomed it when she approached us a few years ago, and we are thankful for the challenge this posed, and for being pushed to reflect on the challenges of integrating feminism and gender into our antimilitarist practice. When Cynthia called me earlier this week and asked me to talk today, it had a similar effect again.
