If you can’t attend, please phone them on Monday to demand they release Shireen Issawi and all members of the Issawi family.
Please bring a sign that says “Free Shireen Issawi” or “Justice for Shireen Issawi” or something similar. For ideas, see here:
We have 201 postcards for people to sign, and return to us so we can mail them to:
- President Obama (74 cards)
- Zeid Raa’d Al Hussein, High Commissioner for Human rights in Switzerland (52 cards)
- Shireen’s family (75 cards)
With enough people, we hope to get all 200 cards signed. Passers-by with enough time may sign all three.
Please do not let people walk off with them or they will never get sent (Postcard stamp to Switzerland or Jerusalem is $1.20).
Postage will be paid by 14 Friends of Palestine, Marin.
People from Marin will be taking the 10.10 am ferry from Larkspur, arriving in SF at 10.45am, followed by a stiff walk up Sacramento Street. Google maps says it will take 12 mins.
Organized by 14 Friends of Palestine. More information: 14friendsofpalestine@gmail.
