The longest-serving Palestinian political prisoner, Nael Barghouti, 59, continues to be held despite having finished his latest sentence of 30 months, which was issued based on secret information, on December 17. An appeal was submitted by the prosecution, who seek to reinstate a previous life sentence, on November 25, 2015. However, the military court judge has not yet given a response to the appeal. Barghouti faces the possibility of reinstatement of his life sentence based on secret information.
Barghouti was first arrested when he was 20 years old in April 1978. Barghouti was released as part of the 2011 prisoner exchange. In 2014, during a mass arrest campaign, he was rearrested under military order 1651, which allows for the rearrest of prisoners released in exchange deals based on secret information. Today, he has spent over 35 years in Israeli prisons.
Stand with Barghouti to demand that Israel release him and all 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners immediately, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements now.
Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over the companies’ support for Israeli crimes.
