On Sunday 2/2/2010, Conscientious objector (CO) Emelia Marcovich refused to enlist in the Israeli army.
Emelia is a part of “The Senior Letter (Shministim) 2009-2010“ which reads
“We, High School Seniors that are suppose to enlist the israeli army in followed by the mandatory military service,refuse to take part in any oppression, in the occupation and in wars.”
Emelia has been sentenced for 10 days of detention in a closed base (Meitav –Reception and Sorting Base), and she is supposed to be released at Wednesday 2/10/2010. Afterwards she will be judged again and probably will be sent to the military prison for women. Right now, because she’s still not in prison you have a chance to call her cell phone +972 545897659 and tell her how much you support her action.
