Video: All out to Lannemezan October 24 – Free Georges Abdallah, Free Palestine!

Georges Abdallah is a Lebanese Communist struggler and a fighter for the Palestinian cause imprisoned in France since 1984 and eligible for release since 1999. He is entering his 37th year of imprisonment next 24 October, one of the longest-held political prisoners in the world.

On Saturday, 24 October, the annual protest for the liberation of Georges Abdallah will march to the gates of the prison where he is held in Lannemezan, France. Gather at the Lannemezan train station at 2 pm for a march to the prison.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network urges all supporters of Palestine to take action for the Month of Action for Georges Abdallah – and to join the march through the streets of Lannemezan, with the call: Free Georges Abdallah, Free Palestine!
