Israel worsened this summer its colonization, repression and the detention of Palestinians.
The people in Gaza under siege are terribly suffering without electricity, drinkable water nor medicines. Everyday children and adults are dying because Israel prevents them from getting treatment (cancer, dialysis, cystic fibrosis…)
In East Jerusalem, not only more and more Palestinian houses are demolished but Israel tries to get hold on Al-Aqsa Mosque!
More than 3800 Palestinians have been arrested and jailed since the beginning of this year.
And among them is Salah Hamouri, 32, who is Palestinian and French. He is a lawyer defending Palestinian prisoners, working with Addameer, and has just been kidnapped at his home in East Jerusalem on the 22nd of August, and has been condemned to 6 months of ” administrative detention “, i.e without any charge or trial.
He had already been imprisoned for 7 years in 2005 for being close to the Popular Front of Liberation of Palestine. He could have chosen after that to live a quiet life in France with his French spouse and their child.
But he decided to stay in Palestine in order to defend his people. And Israel has kept punishing him since then. His wife Elsa is banned from entering Palestine. She was prevented to give birth to their child in Palestine, and now he got arrested and imprisoned. Israel wants to show what happens to those who don’t give up the fight for their rights.
We are calling to join a demonstration in Paris this Saturday, September 2
We are also stressing the importance and the success of the BDS campaign, in spite of all kinds of intimidation and blackmailing with accusations of antisemitism everywhere.
And we congratulate our British comrades who occupied the Israeli Elbit arms factory near Birmingham which had to close for two days last July, !
They will appear in court and their trial will take place on September 13.
You can send them a message of solidarity at : firstname.lastname@example.org and, if you can, come to support them on the 13th of September !
