           REFUSING TO KILL

Refusiniks from Around the World Speak Out

             Produced by Payday, a network of men working with the Global Women's strike

 "I'd rather go to prison for desertion than kill a child by mistake",

 Sgt Camilo Meja, US army. Sentenced to a year in prison for refusing to return to Iraq.

 

Refuseniks and their families, supporters and other anti-war protesters around the world,  from the Second World War, wars in Africa, Vietnam, Palestine and the two Gulf wars tell their stories.

Only 2% of soldiers shoot to kill. So the military needs to brainwash the 98% who don't.  Everywhere people are drafted into the military by law or poverty. Those who refuse to kill are punished, jailed, sometimes killed.  In spite of that, there is a growing movement of refuseniks supported by their loved ones usually women.
