Friday, 1 April
G4S Office – NYC
19 W 44th St, NYC
Organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
Sami Janazrah, a Palestinian political prisoner on hunger strike since March 3, was transferred on March 23 to the Negev desert prison from the Ofer prison, where he had been transferred earlier. Janazrah has been held without charge or trial under administrative detention under Israeli military orders since November 15, 2015. He is one of approximately 670 Palestinians held under administrative detention.
He will have an appeal hearing on his detention – again, in Israeli military courts – on 7 April.
According to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, two more administrative detainees are on hunger strikes against their indefinite incarceration: Imad al-Batran since March 15, and Abd-al-Rahim Sawayfeh since March 25.
Two further political prisoners, Zayid Al-Basisi and Nahar Al-Sadi, launhed hunger strikes on March 26 to protest their solitary confinement.
G4S, the world’s largest firm company and second-biggest private employer, equips Israeli prisons and detention centers where around 670 administrative detainees and 6,330 other Palestinian political prisoners are held and tortured, as well as the occupation forces and infrastructure that routinely massacre Palestinians while holding millions under military rule.
Join us to answer a united appeal by Palestinian prisoners (http://samidoun.net/2015/08/stop-g4s-a-call-to-the-global-boycott-movement-from-palestinian-political-prisoners) for escalated boycotts of G4S.
Demand G4S immediately end its contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces and checkpoints, and that Israel release administrative detainees and all Palestinian political prisoners.
Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
