Action week for Ahmad Sa’adat marked in Gothenburg

Translation from the original Swedish published at the Samidoun Göteborg website:

On Tuesday, 15 January, the international week of action for Ahmad Sa’adat began in Gothenburg, Sweden, with a solidarity evening for Sa’adat, the imprisoned General Secretary for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and other Palestinian prisoners.

The event begin with a presentation on Sa’adat’s case and why we in Samidoun Gothenburg are working with many others to highlight this example among the thousands of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli occupation jails.

After this presentation, various initiatives and organizing campaigns for Palestine were discussed in order to build greater solidarity with the Palestinian liberation movement. Participants took solidarity photos, mingled and discussed together and wrote letters to Ahmad Sa’adat and other Palestinian prisoners, including Khalida Jarrar and Mustapha Awad.
