Hillel Rabin spent 56 days in #military #prison for refusing to serve in the #IDF. Now she opens up about her time behind bars, conversations with her fellow inmates, and talking to young Israelis about the #occupation.
Article: ‘Refusing to serve in the army is my small act of making change’




Excerpts:
I said that I was not willing to take part in any way in a system whose very essence is based on #fighting and #violent #oppression. I believe that this needs to change, and this is my way to make #change. This is my small act. I added that I have been vegetarian my entire life, buy second-hand clothing, and am against exploitation, capitalism, and sexism.

I oppose the #occupation because it is #violent, #oppressive, and #racist.

I didn’t fight with anyone in #jail. It was practice for my ego, for my ability to have a conversation, for my ability to be socially flexible. To be in a position in which people #disagree with me and in which I feel uncomfortable — almost threatened — but to be okay with that.
