Israel: Third prison term for conscientious objector Shir Regev

Call for letters of support

by War Resisters’ International

War Resisters’ International has been informed today by its Israeli affiliate New Profile about the repeated imprisonment of conscientious objector Shir Regev.

Shir Regev, 20, from the village of Tuval in the North of Israel, an anarchist and anti-Occupation activist, has began serving his third prison term (34 days) on 14 July 2010.

He had been arrested for the first time on 2 March 2010, and had been sentenced to 20 days in prison. This was followed by a sentence of 10 days on 24 March 2010.

In his statement of refusal, Shir Regev wrote in March 2010:

I believe it is my personal duty to refuse and defect from an army whose main purpose is to serve as an occupation police for maintaining “Israeli order” and imposing it on defenseless Palestinians who are denied citizenship. (…more)

Shir Regev is due to be released on 13 August 2010.

War Resisters’ International calls for letters of support to Shir Regev: Shir Regev, Military ID 5966205, Military Prison No. 6, Military Postal Code 01860, IDF, Israel, Fax: +972-4-9540580

Since the prison authorities often block mail from reaching imprisoned objectors, we also recommend you to send them your letters of support and encouragement via email to messages2prison(at)newprofile.org, and they will be printed out and delivered during visits.

War Resisters’ International calls for letters of protest to the Israeli authorities, and Israeli embassies abroad. An email letter to Israels Minister of Defence Ehud Barak can be sent at http://wri-irg.org/node/10559.

War Resisters’ International calls for the immediate release of conscientious objector Shir Regev, and all other imprisoned conscientious objectors.
