Your solidarity is crucial to remind the imprisoned refusers and peace activists that they are not alone and that we are aware of the significance of their resistance. On this day,</p> <ul> <li><strong>Join many others from across the world and write </strong>to those <a href="https://wri-irg.org/en/story/2021/prisoners-peace-list-november-2021">imprisoned for their peace work and conscientious objection</a>.</li> <li><strong>Encourage your friends, peace group, student, faith or community group to organise a card-writing session</strong> (online, or if the Covid-19 regulations allow, physical).</li> <li><strong>Help us spread the word on social media</strong>. Use the hashtag #PfPday21 and post your messages of solidarity with prisoners for peace on social media, and invite others to write to those in jail.</li> </ul> <p>If you have details of other

Your solidarity is crucial to remind the imprisoned refusers and peace activists that they are not alone and that we are aware of the significance of their resistance. On this day,</p> <ul> <li>Join many others from across the world and write to those imprisoned for their peace work and conscientious objection.</li> <li>Encourage your friends, peace group, student, faith or community group to organise a card-writing session (online, or if the Covid-19 regulations allow, physical).</li> <li>Help us spread the word on social media. Use the hashtag <em>#PfPday20</em> and post your messages of solidarity with prisoners for peace on social media, and invite others to write to those in jail. </li> </ul> <p>If you have details of

LB-E/12, Turkmenistan</strong></p> <h2><strong>Finland</strong></h2> <p>In Finland, there is conscription for all citizens assigned as male at birth. The right to conscientious objection is recognised but the length of alternative civilian service is punitive. For decades, many Finnish conscientious objectors have declared 'total objection', refusing the conscription system altogether (including alternative service), emphasising the system's militaristic content or referring to their religious beliefs. Many total objectors have served time behind bars or in house arrest due to their refusal. Matias Selin, a Jehovah's Witness, is one them who is serving a house arrest due to his total objection at the moment.</p> <ul> <li>Matias Selin (07 Sep '20 - 26 Feb '21).

field--item"><p>War Resisters' International has recently been joined by new affiliates. One of the new affiliates of our expanding network is the Ambazonian Prisoners of Conscience Support Network (APOCS Net). On this Prisoners for Peace Day, we feature APOCS Net's work and encourage our followers to write to Ambazonian prisoners of conscience, alongside other prisoners for peace and conscience (see the full list <a href="https://wri-irg.org/sites/default/files/public_files/2019-12/pfp_list_2019_-_english_3.pdf">here</a>).</p> <p>Below is a call for support from APOCS Net explaining their work and encouraging everyone to stand in solidarity with, and write to, Ambazonian prisoners of conscience. </p> <h2>The Ambazonian Prisoners of Conscience Support Network</h2> <p>The Ambazonian Prisoners of Conscience Support Network (APOCS Net) was started in January 2018 by Ambazonian diaspora organizers and allies in South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States who wanted to help Ambazonians who had been rounded up and imprisoned in secret detention centers of the French Neocolonial regime in Cameroon.</p> <p>The current generation of Ambazonian Prisoners of Conscience refers to people imprisoned for the expression of their conscientiously held belief that the fundamental human rights of the people of Ambazonia, formerly the United Nations Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons under United Kingdom administration, needs to be respected by all — including the French neo-colonial regime in Cameroon and its allies. The conflict between Ambazonia and Cameroon, which is the basis for the imprisonment of close to 3,000 Ambazonian political prisoners, has it roots in the military occupation of Ambazonia by Cameroon following an ill-fated UN plebiscite on a confederation between the two countries in 1961.</p> <p>Six decades of disciplined protest have been based on the principles of nonviolence and the slogan “the force of argument, not the argument of force.” The recorded history of repression against indigenous Ambazonians, however, goes as far back as 1891 during the period of German colonization. Legendary leader Mountain King Kuva Likenye was deported from Buea to Wonya Mokumba because of his anti-colonial stance, where he fell ill and died soon after.</p> <p>The number of Ambazonian political prisoners has skyrocketed since fall 2016, following nationwide protests to defend the Ambazonian common law–based judicial system from the Cameroonian regime’s attempt to replace it with what amounts to a colonial court system. Click <a href="https://ambazoniapocs.net/node/16">here</a> to read more about the history of the conflict.</p> <p>Leaders from all corners of Ambazonian civil society have been rounded up in the dragnet that followed this nonviolent uprising — teachers and teachers union leaders (including Vice Principal Penn Terrence and Mr. Wilfred Tassang, organizer with the Ambazonian Teachers’ Union, CAPTAC), lawyers and legal workers union leaders (including Barrister Shufai Berinyuy and Barrister Eyambe Elias, both organizers with the Ambazonia Legal Workers Union), journalists and press union leaders (including Mancho Bibixy, Tsi Conrad, Awah Paul and Felix Ngalim), student union leaders, doctors, and members of the traditional rulers association. </p> <p>The most high-profile prisoner is Sisiku AyukTabe Julius, an open source tech developer known for his nonviolent leadership and philanthropic work, who in January 2018 was <a href="https://ambazoniapocs.net/node/10">arrested along with his aides</a> while meeting at the Nera Hotel in Nigeria, and forcibly returned to Cameroon in violation of the international legal principle of nonrefoulement.</p> <p>In March 2019, the Federal High Court of Nigeria ruled that the abduction and deportation of these “Nera 10” and other prisoners by Nigerian authorities was illegal within Nigeria, and a violation of international law, and that they should be immediately released and returned to Nigeria. Yet they <a href="https://ambazoniapocs.net/node/35">are still being imprisoned</a> by the Cameroon regime.</p> <p><a name="_GoBack" id="_GoBack"></a> These prisoners of conscience continue to provide leadership from behind bars, and APOCS Net works to support their physical and emotional well-being, to gather and disseminate information that is relevant to their struggle, and to organize solidarity actions in consultation with their needs and campaigns. We also work to support imprisoned human rights defenders in Cameroon, such as the <a href="https://ambazoniapocs.net/node/28">Kamto 203</a> and <a href="https://ambazoniapocs.net/node/34">l’Association pour la Défense des Droits des Etudiants  au Cameroun (ADDEC)</a>, as well as other political prisoners in the rest of the Francafrique controlled territories. APOCS Net actively seeks to contribute to the building of a global network in solidarity with imprisoned human rights defenders all over the world.</p> <p>Below is information on how you can write to the Ambazonian prisoners of conscience named in this article.
