Occupation Refuser Omri Evron Sentenced to 14 Days in Military Prison

Refuser Lior Volynitz to be sentenced next Wednesday

Occupation refuser Omri Evron was sentenced Sunday, Oct 15, 2006, to 14 days in military prison after he
announced his refusal to enlist for regular mandatory service in the IDF. Omri was put in solitary confinement having refused to wear uniform and obey orders.

Douzens of supporters demonstrated in support of Omri at the gate of the National Conscription Center.

In his letter of refusal Omri wrote:

My refusal to enlist is in protest against the longstanding military occupation of the Palestinian
people, an occupation that deepens and entrenches the hatred and terror between peoples.
I refuse to serve an ideology that does not recognize the right of all nations to independence and a peace- ful coexistence. In no way am I prepared to contribute to the systematic oppression of a civilian population and the deprivation of their rights as it is being carried out by the apartheid regime and the Israeli military in the occupied territories. I am outraged by the starvation and incarceration of millions of people behind walls and checkpoints.
I refuse to serve the arms industries, mega corpora- tions, greedy contractors, preachers of racism and cynical leaders whose business is the advancement of suffering and who rob people of their basic human rights.. I refuse to kill! I refuse to oppress! I refuse to occupy!

Wednesday, Oct 18, we will accompany refuser Lior Volynitz on his way to military prison. Meeting point: gate of Tel
Hashomer base, 8.30 am.
Transportation: 8.00 am, the El Al terminal, Arlozorov train station
