- The world wide spread pacifist organization World Beyond War recognizes the struggle and perseverance of Sinjajevina inhabitants against the installation of the military ground.
- Although Montenegrin shepherds temporarily detained the military, there is no national law to protect them from a new attempt.
- Both organizations arise an updated petition to the EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement and the Ministry of the Defense of Montenegro that you can sign here.
The Save Sinjajevina movement received, last Wednesday the first-ever annual War Abolisher Award by the World Beyond War (WBW) organization. Hundreds of people assisted through the on-line meeting that also included other worldwide examples of pacifist struggles.
Three awards were presented: The Lifetime Organizational War Abolisher of 2021: Peace Boat; The David Hartsough Lifetime Individual War Abolisher of 2021: Mel Duncan and -last but not least- The War Abolisher Award of 2021 to the Civic Initiative Save Sinjajevina.
As WBW itself recognizes, “people in Montenegro have put their bodies in the way and prevented military exercises on their land — an amazing victory! But they need our help to make their success permanent and end all efforts to build a NATO military training ground in the mountains of Montenegro.”
A little support from outside Montenegro can make a world of difference, that is why an updated petition to press the European and Montenegrin Government to protect and promote Sinjajevina is being launched. Together with the crowdfunding campaign to support directly the Sinjajevina inhabitants.
