News from the Revolution in Rojava and Wider Kurdistan
In Rojava, where a many years-long struggle is being waged against ISIS, the government of the Cizre canton has recognized the right of conscientious objection – reports an article from IMC.
According to Welat News, a new decision passed by the Cizire Canton General Executive Assembly has recognized the right to conscientious objection.
Last year a Monthly Mandatory Military Service Law went into effect which conscripted people between the ages of 21-30 for short periods.
However the Cizire canton has removed this provision and recognized the right of people to conscientious objection.
