WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT THE DEATH OF OUR CHILDREN.
number of views: 252

Peace Dialogue has launched a video campaign called “We Have a Right to Know the TRUTH!” The video campaign will consist of a series 30-second video-interviews with members of the families of soldiers who died in the Army in non-combat conditions. The focus of the video will be expressing their right to know what happened to their sons, husbands and brothers. We have found in our work documenting these deaths in the Safe Soldiers for a Safe Armenia project that many families do not believe the version of the “fatal accidents” that resulted in the death of their family members.

According to several civil society groups, more than 200 soldiers have died in the Armenian Military during the last five years. Many died as a result of violations of the cease-fire regime signed between Armenian and Azerbaijanis in 1994 after the Nagorno-Karabakh war. However, during these same years many died as a result of other internal issues: suicides, murders, fatal incidents or because of lake of access to medical service in their military units.

At the end of 2014, Peace Dialogue NGO filed a lawsuit in order to obtain information on the fatalities of persons serving in the military from the Ministry of Defense in Armenia (MoD). The Administrative Court of the Republic of Armenia (RA) has decided to allow the lawsuit to proceed and will hold hearings on two cases related to this most important issue.    more»

ARENA: SYSTEMATIZATION OF EXPERIENCE WORKSHOP
number of views: 132

The concept of using art, films, and theatre in peace and human rights activism is not new. Various civil society groups in different parts of the World use media as a way to enable people to talk about human rights, democracy, and peace even in countries where free voices are restricted. Thanks to the ambivalence of aesthetic language, artwork is always open to interpretations and, in this way they offer a democratic, flexible manner to set a dialogical conversation in motion.    more»
