On January 15, 2002, the Palestinian Authority arrested Ahmad Sa’adat, secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Sa’adat was then taken captive under the auspices of the United States and Britain. During a violent attack in 2006, he was kidnapped by Israeli occupation forces and is now serving a 30-year sentence on Israeli prison.
To mark Ahmad Sa’adat’s case as one of many, yet a unique example of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli and international prison and detention, we are organizing a solidarity evening in Samidoun Gothenburg. The evening of solidarity will include a short presentation on Sa’adat, followed by the opportunity to write letters to him (and other Palestinian prisoners) and to participate in a joint photo of solidarity. Finally, information on international mobilization will also be presented ahead of the campaign days 24-30 March 2020 for the two-year anniversary of the Great Return March.
