WATCH: Supporting jailed conscientious objectors in Israel

For decades, since the First Lebanon War, Israeli military objector group Yesh Gvul has been leading demonstrations in support of imprisoned conscientious objectors. Last month, the organization went to ‘Prison 4’ in Zrifin to support conscientious objector Ido Ramon, who has served some 100 days for refusing to take part in the occupation.

Social TV asks the activists what brings them to the demonstrations, what gives them the strength to keep returning for so many years, and what they have to say to enlistment-aged Israelis.
