Renen Raz

Renen Raz was a queer, anti-colonial, refusenik Israeli activist who passed away at the age of 28 in 2016. His life and activism is remembered by Mondaweiss, Global Voices, 972 Mag.

Raz toured Europe in 2015 to raise awareness about the Palestinian struggle. At one speaking engagement, he said: “It’s not a conflict, it’s occupation and apartheid.” Raz believed a solution was possible: “My solution is just equality for all of the people. It doesn’t matter if it’s just one state solution or two state solution, binational, as long as all of the people who live there have their rights to live and have fully recognize the people and their history, and their human rights by the law. That’s what’s important. It’s not about who lives where.”
