number of views: 245
On February 14, 2015 Peace Dialogue NGO organized the first public screening of a short animated film called “Conscription Notice”. The movie was prepared with the support of the PAX
organization as part of the project Safe Soldier for Safe Armenia project. More than 40 people attended the event. There were civil society representatives, students, schoolchildren as well as soldiers and representatives of the local government in attendance.
After examining the reasons behind the offences and incidents in the military that resulted in the death of a soldier, Peace Dialogue NGO learned that some of the reasons for the many deaths in the military is due to the fact that neither the officers nor the conscripts are well informed about their rights. In fact, the film can act as a video manual on the soldiers’ rights. It tells the story of a young recruit who is to be drafted into the army. His grandfather tells him about the rights of a soldier and human rights in general. more»
