Conscience Imprisoned - From Nablus To Atlit

Conscience Imprisoned - From Nablus To Atlit

[The "imaginary pacifist" CO Yoni Ben Artzi was sent home today by the military authorities - until there will be a new decision of the Conscience Committee. Maybe they think that this way they can prevent us from coming in big numbers, furious all - to demonstrate Saturday on the mountain overlooking the Atlit prison encampment. There the Five yesterday went to begin their 12-month term, in the middle of the present storm and rain and cold. But we just receive a message from Yesh Gvul (the organizers of the protest together with the Refusnik Parents' Forum) that whatever the weather, we will go.]

This week, the soldiers continued to shoot and kill in the alleys of Nablus. This week, the bulldozers continued to destroy fields and olive groves, and to build walls and fences that rob hundreds of thousands of their livelihood. This week, Sharon made more promises that he has no intention of keeping.

This week, the IDF announced that soldiers are permitted to shoot at demonstrators, both Palestinians and Israelis.

This week, five courageous youngsters, who are not ready to take part in all this, were sent to prison for one year.
