Petition to Free the Shministim - Israel's Young Conscientious Objectors: The Shministim are Israeli high school students who have been imprisoned for refusing to serve in an army that occupies Palestine.

“I wasn’t born to serve as a soldier who occupies another, and the struggle against the occupation is mine too. It is a struggle for hope, for a reality that sometimes feels so far away. I have a responsibility for this society. My responsibility is to refuse.” - Raz Bar-David Varon, 18 year old member of the Shministim
