Courage to Resist – Support the troops who refuse to fight! In the past few years, tens of thousands of service members have resisted illegal war and occupation in a number of different ways by going AWOL, seeking conscientious objector status and/or a discharge, asserting the right to speak out against injustice from within the military, and for a relative few, publicly refusing to fight. While there are those who would like to dismiss war resisters as “cowards,” the reality is that it takes exceptional courage to resist unjust, illegal, and/or immoral orders. For many resisters, it was their first-hand experiences as occupation troops that compelled them to take a stand. For others, “doing the right thing” and acting out of conscience began to outweigh their military training in obedience.

Philippines Solidarity Network of Aotearoa The Philippines Solidarity Network of Aotearoa (PSNA) has been in existence since the early 1980s, and is based in Christchurch.
