Take action: Sign the petition now – bit.ly/FreeKhalidaJarrar

On Monday, July 2, Khalida Jarrar, a Palestinian Legislative Council member, human rights defender, feminist and leftist leader, faces the renewal of an “administrative detention” order Israeli occupation forces will have already used to imprison her, without charge or trial, for a year.

Along with Samidoun, Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine have called for urgent mobilizations ahead of the occupation military court’s hearing. International days of action are planned from June 30 – July 2.

The following day, Tuesday, July 3, women in the Gaza Strip will march to demand an end to Israel’s brutal 12-year siege of the Palestinian enclave. The High Committee of the Great March of Return has called for supporters to mobilize internationally in solidarity with them.

Stand with Khalida to demand that Israel release her, 500 other “administrative detainees” and all 6,500 Palestinian political prisoners, and with thousands of Palestinian women defying Israel’s ruthless policies of ethnic cleansing, collective punishment and mass murder.

Protest the “Friends of the IDF’s” support for Israeli war crimes and join the global campaign to demand a comprehensive military embargo on Israel now.

Support the Palestinian national, prisoners’ and BDS movements, the Palestinian Resistance, Palestine’s Great March of Return, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
