Nael 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 February 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.

Along with Samidoun, Addameer Prisoner Support & Human Rights Association has called for action to pressure Israel to release Barghouthi, now held as a political hostage by the Israeli government.

Stand with Barghouthi to demand that Israel release him and all 6,128 Palestinian political prisoners, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements.

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.
