The Committee to Commemorate Omar Nayef Zayed issued a call for demonstrations, events and protests inside and outside Palestine to mark the 40th day of his death inside the Palestinian Embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria.

In order to achieve justice for Omar Nayef Zayed, to build international pressure to deeply investigate the crime against him, in order to hold accountable those responsible and those who were accomplices in his death, the Committee to Commemorate the Martyr Omar Nayef Zayed calls upon the Palestinian people in Palestine and in exile and diaspora, and the solidarity movement and friends of the Palestinian people and Palestinian cause everywhere in the world, to organize protests, demonstrations and actions to mark the 40th day after the death of the martyr Omar Nayef Zayed – on Friday and Saturday, 8 and 9 April, 2016.

The Committee to Commemorate Omar Nayef Zayed emphasizes that action and international attention is necessary to struggle for justice and accountability in this critical case, and to ensure that the cause for which Omar struggled – freedom for the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, and justice for Palestine – will continue to live and grow.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network joins in the call of the Committee to Commemorate Omar Nayef Zayed to organize actions, events and demonstrations around the world, at Israeli, Bulgarian and Palestinian consulates and embassies and in other public squares and spaces, to demand justice and accountability in the case of Omar Nayef Zayed and freedom for Palestinian prisoners and all of Palestine.
