Addameer Prisoner Support & Human Rights Association and Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network have called for action to pressure Israel to release Nael Barghouthi, being held as a political hostage by the Israeli government.

Barghouthi, age 59, has been imprisoned by Israel for 36 years and is the longest-detained Palestinian political prisoner.

He was released by Israel in a prisoner exchange with Palestinian resistance groups in 2011, but swept up in a wave of detentions by Israeli occupation forces that targeted dozens of freed prisoners in 2014.

On March 22, an Israeli military court at Ofer prison, in the occupied Palestinian West Bank, used “secret evidence” to reimpose Barghouthi’s original sentence of life plus eighteen years.

Stand with Barghouthi to demand that Israel release him and all 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners immediately, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements now.

Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over the companies’ support for Israeli crimes.

Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
