“They will not criminalise us, rob us of our true identity, steal our individualism, depoliticise us, churn us out as systemised, institutionalised, decent law-abiding robots. Never will they label our liberation struggle as criminal.” Bobby Sands
17 April is traditionally marked as the International Day of Solidarity with palestinian Prisoners. On this day, many worldwide protests, demonstrations and actions are held to support the struggle of imprisoned Palestinians for freedom. Today, there are nearly 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails, including women, men, children and elders. Approximately 600 are held in administrative detention – imprisonment without charge or trial, a massive violation of rights. Hundreds of Palestinian children under 16 are held in Israeli jails.
Today we call for an end to the colonial administrative detention, freedom for Palestinian prisoners and freedom for Palestine!
