Stop militarization of the Croatian society – no to military service, no to military parades. Considering the concerning appearance of militarization of our society in the last couple of months, which culminated in this week's discussions about an alleged resurrection of compulsory military service and the announcement of the organization of a military parade, Centre for Peace Studies calls Mrs. President of Republic Croatia to give up on this political thought. We also call the Croatian government to abolish the idea of organizing a military parade on the occasion of marking the anniversary of 20 years since the operation „Oluja“.
Centre for Peace Studies invites you to join us on Monday, May 20th, 2019 at 10:00am at HUB365, Petračićeva 6, in Zagreb, for the public panel: „Europe and Migration: Where do we draw the (border) line?“ where local and international experts will present and discuss the current migration situation, as well as the expectations that decision-makers at the local and European Union levels bring to an end the current human rights abuses, prevent the occurence of future abuses, and respect the rule of law. Candidates for the upcoming European parliamentary elections have been invited to the panel.
