Нет войне в Украине!

(01.03.2022) В Европе снова война. Мы в ужасе. Российские войска агрессивно вторглись в Украину по приказу российского правительства Владимира Путина. Уже много убитых и раненых. Существует угроза дальнейшей эскалации.

Мы призываем российское правительство немедленно прекратить все боевые действия и вывести все войска из Украины. В любом случае необходимо избежать эскалации конфронтации между Россией и НАТО. Мы выступаем за скорейшее начало переговоров, чтобы предотвратить дальнейшие страдания множества людей.

Israel: I was sentenced to another 30 days in prison

Shahar Perets asks for support

(07.12.2021) Hi, it’s me, Shahar. For those of you not familiar with my story, I’m 19 years old from Kfar Yona, Israel. Earlier this year I declared my refusal to serve in the Israeli army because I am not willing to take part in Israel’s policies of occupation and apartheid in the Palestinian Territories. In response to my refusal, I was sent to military prison where I’ve served three prison sentences totaling 58 days. Last Sunday I was sentenced to another 30 days in prison.
