Editorial

Dear readers of co-update.

The June issue of co-update opens with a report on our activities for 15 May - International Day of Conscientious Objection. As mentioned in the last issue of co-update, WRI's focus for 15 May 2009 has been on the situation in South Korea.

However, South Korea is not the only country where conscientious objectors encounter problems, and in many countries COs and their supporters celebrated 15 May to raise awareness for the problems conscientious objectors face.

War Resisters' International has been organising and coordinating activities for 15 May since 2001, to fill a gap left by the demise of ICOM, the International Conscientious Objectors' Meeting.

To continue to do this work War Resisters' International depends on your donations. We therefore kindly ask you to donate to WRI online at wri-irg.org/en/donate-en.htm.
