I believe that we’re at a turning point

Newsletter of the Refuser Solidarity Network (RSN)

(23.06.2024) Hey, Mattan here. The past eight months have been devastating for me. On October 7, many of our community lost loved ones. As we were mourning, we knew that a brutal Israeli attack was coming and that we must mobilize to prevent it. We failed. Tens of thousands of Palestinians have been killed, millions displaced, and the population is on the brink of famine. Our role at Refuser Solidarity Network (RSN) is first and foremost to work with our Israeli partners to end the Gaza genocide. But I believe that we can do more.
