15th May is a day for remembering all those who have struggled for the right to refuse to kill, throughout history and today. We remember those who have refused to bear arms and participate in war. Hundreds of people across the world are imprisoned or forced to flee their home countries for refusing to join the armed forces. On May 15th we stand in solidarity with them, as well as celebrating the memory of all those throughout history who have resisted conscription.
