Inside Union Station
On the occasion of Ahed Tamimi’s 17th birthday, we will gather to demand the immediate release of Ahed, her mother Nariman and all Palestinian political prisoners.
Israel arrested youth activist Ahed Tamimi on December 19, 2017. A few hours later they arrested her mother. Israel has since levied 12 charges against Ahed, including rock throwing, incitement and assault of a soldier. All of Ahed’s actions were legitimate resistance to Israel’s ongoing military occupation. She faces years in an Israeli prison.
We say that Israel, not the women and girls of Palestine, are the criminals.
