Refusing to Kill

My dear friend Yishay Mor will be speaking tomorrow, Saturday March 13th, as part of Refusing to Kill--An evening with refuseniks from around the world.

His story, as he tells it, is an account of how an ordinary man, amidst extraordinary circumstances, found courage to resist, to step out of normality and to follow his conscience. Whether or not you agree with him that resistance is a valid form of civil disobedience, his story is a compelling one, and he tells it eloquently. Then again, if you knew him, like I do, that would not be surprising in the least.

The talk will be held at 7pm, Godwin & Crowndale Community Hall, Crowndale Road, London NW1, UK. (The nearest tube is Mornington Crescent.)

If I were in London now I would definitely be there tomorrow. Yishay told me to tell you that, if you made it to his talk, do stop by and say hello to him afterwards.

If you, like me, are a just a tad too far to make it out to London, you could just read the texts of his speech tomorrow.
