VOCES JUDÍAS POR LA PAZ

Una organización de objetores israelíes pide apoyo. Son chavales valientes y con las ideas claras, así que os paso el enlace por si os quereis sumar a su protesta, apoyando su decisión.
TRADUCCION DEL TEXTO DE LA PAGINA WEB, PARA LOS NO ANGLOPARLANTES


Apoyo el Shministim y su derecho pacífico de oponerse al servicio militar. Pido la liberación de estos adolescentes encarcelados por su negación a desempeñar servicio en un ejército que ocupa los territorios palestinos. El encarcelamiento de estos objetores de conciencia es una violación de sus derechos humanos y contrario al derecho internacional. Su resistencia no-violenta a la ocupación señala el camino de una paz justa y seguridad para toda la gente de la región. Ella es nuestra mejor esperanza de futuro. Le pido prestarle atención, y no castigarla.

Dear Friend,

Shministim.. Have you heard of them? I have – just now. And once I heard about them, I had to do something.

The Shministim – all about ages 16, 17, 18 and in the 12th grade – are a new breed of conscientious objectors in Israel and right now they are taking a stand. They believe in a better, more peaceful future for themselves and for Israelis and Palestinians, and they are refusing to join the Israeli army. They're in jail, holding strong against immense pressure from family, friends and the Israeli government. They need our support and they need it today.

The Shministim have asked Jewish Voice for Peace to reach out to people like us to let the Israeli government know we are watching, and that we support their courage. They're hoping to receive hundreds of thousands of postcards to be delivered to the Israeli Minister of Defense on December 18th, when they will hold a massive rally and press conference. They're hoping to stand strong on the steps of this majestic building - and on the steps of history - representing not only the thousands of refuseniks who came before them, not only the many young people to whom they are an example of a better world, but also to represent us. They have asked you, me, and every person who strives for peace to be on those steps with them, on that day. I will be there.
