Israelis Arrested for Blocking the Road to Airbase


Today, August 8th, tens of leftist Israeli activist are blocking the road to the Israeli air force Ramat David area, close to Haifa. Police have already arrested more than ten activists.

The group issued a press release stating their motives which is translated below:

The international law requires of every human being the duty of resistance to war crimes using every possible means. At this moment, when the rockets are falling, the war crimes are committed, the victims buried, it is time to fight to stop the war.

The activists are carrying a clear message: Stop civilian killings, Stop the war crimes, Stop the Israeli government criminal policies.

It is a duty for every soldier to refuse serving the war crimes orders. The support by the Israeli people of this criminal government means they are participants in committing the war crimes.

The number of dead is continuously increasing. The Israeli air force attacks are planting death, destruction and hate. In Palestine, the occupation continues killing and torturing Palestinians. And in Israel the civilians of the North Israel are used as human shields and they are paying their lives as a price to serve the ego of the generals who are even unable to acknowledge failure and defeat.

The war crimes are committed everyday, hundreds of kids have been killed. The number of the killed is over 1000. There are tens of thousands of injured and over one million refugees and Israel continues the air strikes, the killing, the destruction, the annihilation to prove who is powerful in the region.

We repeat and we say what is known for everyone, there is no military solution. We are calling on the Israeli government and its people to wake up and behave in a moral way.

We must stop the war machine and the destruction. we demand an immediate ceasefire, an exchange for the prisoners, and the release the political prisoners in Israel.
