12th April 2016, www.inminds.com
Please join us commemorate Palestinian Prisoners Day, on Sunday 17th April, to show solidarity with the 7000+ Palestinian prisoners, some as young as 12 years old, that have been abducted from their families by an illegal invading army of occupation, and caged in the most horrendous conditions, being brutally tortured to systematically extract false confessions to sustain a 99.7% conviction rate in Israel’s military kangaroo courts.
Join us demand freedom for the prisoners and demand the guilty companies who help Israel run its dungeons and torture dens – G4S and Hewlett Packard – be indicted to the International Criminal Court at the Hague for war crimes.
Join us under the Hungerford / Golden Jubilee Bridges on the Southbank (between London Eye and Southbank Centre) at 3pm – look out for Palestinian flags. Its just a short walk from Waterloo station or across the river from Embankment tube station. We will have an information stall, live music, speeches, leaflets to give out.. a day for the whole family to join in.

Palestinian Prisoners Campaign
The Palestinian Prisoners Campaign aims to raise awareness for the plight of Palestinian prisoners and build solidarity for their struggle and work towards their freedom. The campaign was launched by Innovative Minds (inminds.com) and the Islamic Human Rights Commission (ihrc.org) on the occasion of Al Quds Day 2012 (on 17th August 2012), since then we have held actions every fortnight in support of Palestinian prisoners, if you can spare two hours twice a month then please join the campaign by coming to the next action.
