European Women at the negotiation table!, October 31, 2005Friday, July 23 2010
The German women's security council, with numerous other women's and peace organizations, is calling for a 31 October action all over Europe.
Five years after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, the 3 "P"s are still not implemented: Participation of women in all kinds of conflict resolution at all levels, prevention of violent conflicts with the equal participation of women, and protection of women especially affected by conflict, displacement and as refugees.
At the hour 13:25 on October 31, women will take their rightful place at negotiation tables in front of / or in European foreign ministries. This symbolic action calls for the full and rapid implementation of Resolution 1325 in general and specifically for the equal participation of women in the negotiations for the final status of Kosovo.
