Action part of #IsraeliApartheidWeek NYC and Global Days of Action for the Hares Boys
Mohammad Suleiman, Ammar Souf, Mohammed Kleib, Tamer Souf and Ali Shamlawi are being held in Israeli prison charged with 20 counts of attempted murder each for alleged stone-throwing, with no evidence whatsoever.
The boys have been labelled as “terrorists” before any objective investigation even took place. They’ve been condemned in the Israeli media as guilty even before they “confessed,” under torture, to stone-throwing. They’ve been denied any sort of justice in the Israeli military court system that convicts Palestinian children at a 99.7% rate, not unlike that of the world’s worst totalitarian regimes of the 20th century.
Join us during Israeli Apartheid Week NYC 2015 as we take direct action to free the Hares Boys, on the second anniversary of their 2013 detentions, and to stop G4S. G4S is a British private security company that plays a key role in Israel’s apartheid system, providing security services and equipment to Israeli prisons, checkpoints, the Apartheid Wall and the Israeli military and police.
In 2007, G4S signed a contract with the Israeli Prison Authority to run and provide security services for Israeli prisons where Palestinian political prisoners, including children, are held without trial and subjected to torture. G4S is an accomplice in Israel’s use of mass incarceration as a way to dissuade Palestinians from resisting its apartheid system.
Meet us by the statue of Benito Juarez at the west end of Bryant Park. We gather, then go.
