Responding to the call of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, Manchester Uni Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! society is calling for action on International Women’s Day for the release of all political prisoners in Israeli jails. Lena Jarbouni is the longest serving female prisoner locked up by the Israeli occupation and is one of over 7,000 Palestinians currently in jail.
For more info on the female prisoners see:
Britain is complicit in this systematic oppression. British company G4S – which operates at Manchester Uni – profits from its operations in Israeli prisons, while Barclays bank funds arms companies which provide weapons to the fascist regimes of Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
At a time when racist Zionist forces are attempting to ban all BDS/pro-Palestine activism from British universities, we must take a stand on the side of the oppressed. We will not back down!
Free all Palestinian political prisoners!
Victory to Palestine!
