Updates from Bosnia

There have been several days of unrest in Bosnia in the past few days. At the Center for Peacebuilding we have supported peaceful protests and we are doing all we can to advocate for nonviolence.

Peace Camp participants have been present at protests around the country trying to advance principles of non violent conflict resolution. In Zenica, young people affiliated with CIM have helped clean up the city, and have taken part in writing formal requests to the governement. CIM volunteers have also used social media to raise awareness of the implications of damaging public buildings and using violence to advance a message of social change. 

The international media has reported that the violence in Bosnia has not been seen since the end of war. The movement was started in order to pressure the governement to implement reforms that will lead to development both social and economic. It is also the first time since the war that such an explansive movement has united people to advance a message of positive change. Our efforts are to keep advocating for change by peaceful means and support our peace camp alumni in their pursuit of change in their local communities. 

Thank you for your support, and please share out mission in order to raise awareness of our programme. On Wednesaday the 12th Globalgiving is matching all donations by 30%. Thank you all for your messages, and kind support without which we could not continue training and supporting our local, talented youth. 

In Peace,

The CIM Team
