Luc Francey

Luc Francey (1925-1992) was a Swiss Professor who succeeded in changing a significant Federal Law in Switzerland involving the use of  military training.  His claim, at the time, was that a neutral country did not need such a heavy investment in war but in peace.  This achievement will cost many young people, including himself,  spending time behind bar in order to be heard by the Federal Government but eventually won in a referendum in 1992. In 1995 a Civil Service option is offered to all young recruits. Cont
