The “Why We Refuse” Tour is a national tour of two Israeli women who are visiting the United States to speak about their experiences as conscientious objectors in the Israeli army. Maya Wind and Netta Mishly are part of an Israeli group called Shministim, Israeli high school students who have been imprisoned for refusing to serve in an army that occupies the Palestinian Territories.
