Release conscientious objector Atalya Ben-Abba
Dear Avigdor Lieberman,
Atalya Ben-Abba has been imprisoned for her refusal to join the Israeli military.
Atalya Ben-Abba refuses to enlist in the Israeli Army based on beliefs and conscience. She claims her human right to conscientious objection, as guaranteed by Article 18 of the ICCPR. In a decision from January 2007, the United Nations Human Rights Committee recognised the right to conscientious objection as a legitimate exercise of the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, as guaranteed by Article 18 ICCPR.
