Stand with Conscientious objector Hallel Rabin - demonstration at the Israeli Army’s Military Prison 6

Conscientious objector Hallel Rabin was sent to the military prison because of her refusal to join an army of occupation which oppresses the Palestiniands.
She has asked - and fully deserves - for public support for her struggle.

The army’s method of dealing with refusers and conscientious objectors (male or female alike) is incremental sentences of a month at a time,
After each term the objector is again ordered to enlist, refuses again and is sent again to prison.
Hallel Rabin is now undergoing the third such one-month term, and many more can follow,
Using this method enables the army to avoid a court martial which would be held in public and where the defendant can be represented by a lawyer and call witnesses.
Instead, the cumulative one-month terms are issued at “instant trials” held in camera at an officer’s bureau and lasting about five minutes.

’Mesarvot’ and ’Yesh Gvul’ invite the public to attend a protest vigil in support of Hallel and decrying her incarceration,

Talk Hallel Rabin, a conscientious objector, spent two terms in Prison 6 for refusing to serve in the army. A few days before returning to the ICRC to refuse for a third time, she was interviewed by Social TV and justified her decision to refuse in public, after the IDF Conscience Committee was not persuaded to dismiss her.
