Israeli refuseniks speak out against the genocide of Palestinian people

Despite a ban on protests and ongoing repression by the Israeli government since the start of the ongoing war on Palestinians, conscientious objectors have spoken out against the genocide of Palestinian women, children and men.

On 18 November 2023, conscientious objector Tal Mitnick, member of the @Mesarvot (network supporting COs within Israel) spoke at a joint Israeli and Palestinian peaceful demonstration for Ceasefire in Tel Aviv. It was their first legal protest, following a ruling from the Israeli Supreme Court that rules that protests must be allowed.
