Amplification is critical for the Israeli war resisters

Newsletter of the Refuser Solidarity Network (RSN)

(16.06.2024) Hey, Atalya here. I am a refuser who spent 110 days in prison and am RSN’s social media coordinator. Last week, Mattan shared how we assist activists in executing impactful actions to shift Israeli public opinion. This is only part of our support. This week I’d like to talk to you about the work I’m doing to amplify their voices.

Russia: Stop the raids and detention of conscripts in Moscow

Joint Press Release

(03.06.2024) The European Bureau for Conscientious Objection (EBCO), War Resisters’ International (WRI), the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR), and Connection e.V. strongly condemn the raids, detentions and practices of forced recruitment carried out by the Russian authorities from 25th to 27th May in Moscow. We urge the Russian authorities to fully respect the human right to conscientious objection to military service, which is inherent in the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, guaranteed under Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), and so is non-derogable even in a time of public emergency, as stated in Article 4(2) of ICCPR.
