December 1st is Prisoners for Peace Day. War Resisters’ International needs information on peace activists in Japan imprisoned for their nonviolent action against war.
Each year for December 1st War Resisters’ International publishes the Prisoners for Peace list, and calls for support actions and greetings cards to those in prison all over the world. War Resisters’ International depends on the support of peace activists everywhere to collect the information on Prisoners for Peace.
Prisoners for Peace are all those who are imprisoned for conscientious objection to military service, or for nonviolent action against war and militarism, and for peace. This includes that the person concerned should not be known for supporting violence, even when the action where he or she was arrested was an action without violence.
Information on prisoners can be submitted by email, or by using the web form at http://www.wri-irg.org/co/pfpform.htm Anonymous information will not be included.
