The Refuser Solidarity Network (RSN) was formed in April of 2002 to provide support for the growing Refuser Movement in Israel. The initial impetus for the establishment of the RSN was the publication in January 2002 of the Combatant's Letter by a group of 52 reserve officers, which later became Ometz Le'sarev or Courage to Refuse.

The overall objective of the RSN is to support all Israelis who refuse to serve Occupation. This means that we support the work of Courage to Refuse, but also Yesh G'vul, the Shministim and New Profile. We support reservists who refuse to serve over the Green Line. We support men and women conscripts who refuse to serve entirely in the IDF in their opposition to Occupation.

We work to build support for and visibility of the Refusers and their movement, because we believe that these voices, these courageous stands against the folly of Occupation, are crucial to convincing the people of Israel that a new course must be chosen if there is to be lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
