Open letter from COs in Greece
Following the huge increase in the persecution of COs in Greece since the beginning of the year, the Association of COs in Greece has issued an open letter calling for support. It's available in English, French, German and Spanish.
It begins: 'The current year is one of the worst periods in the history of the Conscientious Objection in Greece, concerning the prosecutions the objectors face. The revengeful prosecutions of the military have turned to aimed arrests and sentences in order to eliminate the objectors personally and financially. Six trials and over ten arrests of ideological objectors who had never concealed their personal data (place of living etc), are the proof that recruit offices reacted immediately and aggressively against the growing trend of conscientious objectors.'
