Upcoming events: 18 December 2008: Day of action for the release of Israeli conscientious objectors // 1-5 April 2009: No to war - No to NATO

18 December 2008:

Day of action for the release of Israeli conscientious objectors

The Jewish-American group Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has announced a solidarity campaign with the Shministim, a group of Israeli high school students who refuse to serve in the Israeli military because of the occupation of Palestinian Territories. Historian Howard Zinn, a member of JVP’s Advisory Board, asked tens of thousands of JVP supporters to help secure thousands of letters to the ISraeli Minister of Defense on behalf of the Shministim. The Shministim will hold a Day of Action in Tel Aviv on December 18th to demand release of conscientious objectors who have been imprisoned.
Jewish Voice for Peace set up a website especially for the campaign, which also allows to send protest letters directly to the Israeli Minister of Defence.
