On May 12, 2013, Nathan Blanc was sentenced to a tenth term, of 28 days in prison. He had been released from military prison on Sunday, May 5, 2013, after serving a 20-day term for refusing to serve in the Israeli Army. So far he has been sentenced to a total of 178 days in prison (including the current sentence).
The time has come for a national and international campaign to FREE NATHAN BLANC!
We call groups and individuals in the Middle East and the world to do solidarity actions with Nathan – and to upload videos, photos and text reports about the actions on the wall here: www.facebook.com/Yesh.Gvul.1982
In explaining his decision Natan said: “A long-term situation in which there are two national groups in one country, one with the right to vote, and one without, is immoral, in my opinion. I feel that the IDF plays a central role in maintaining situation, and my conscience does not allow me to participate in this.”
