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.

Antiwar Visions from Athens

This past summer the War Resisters League gave me an opportunity I will always cherish: along with seven others, I traveled to Greece as part of WRL’s Diaspora Delegation to work with different refugee communities there. This delegation was unique in many ways. We were a group representing six diasporas, allowing us to learn about the various issues facing our communities. While many groups are doing humanitarian work in Greece, we aimed to provide politicized service to not only help with basic survival needs, but also work alongside refugees in order to better our collective organizing.

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.
