The War Resisters League affirms that all war is a crime against humanity.  We are determined not to support any kind of war, international or civil, and to strive nonviolently for the removal of all causes of war, including racism, sexism and all forms of exploitation.

Negotiate, Don't Escalate!

Yesterday North Korea fired a ballistic missile at Hokkaido Island-- the first missile of its kind to fly over Japan amidst rising global tensions. Meanwhile, US and South Korean military exercises continue while Trump renews threats of escalation, fueling an all too costly arms race. 

As the international community calls for diplomatic solutions, today we turn to our comrades in the global Korean diaspora and members of Nodutdol for Korean Community Development to share their demands for de-escalation and peace.

WRL's Cross-Diaspora Delegation is Departing!

For the month of August, War Resisters League is funding a crew of cross-diaspora activists in the US and Canada to fly to Athens, Greece this week to work on the ground with refugees self-organizing in squats, centers and projects across the city.

Updates to come next week, but for now, hear from one of the delegates, Sofia Sami below, or check out some testimonies from others on their fundraiser!
