Osman Murat Ülke

Activist type

My name is Osman Murat Ülke...

In view of my deepest convictions and way of life, it is impossible for me to take part in military service or any other compulsory service.

Furthermore I refuse to acknowledge any kind of hierarchical authority. In my opinion the army is the clearest form of institutional power, which makes it a personal enemy I seek to combat and destroy. This is why I consider conscientious objection as the first step on the path I have to follow to preserve my self- esteem.
