In a number of cities around the world, the massive demonstrations taking to the streets for Palestine have faced police repression, brutality, criminalization and attempts to suppress the growing movement for Palestinian liberation. In particular, Palestinian and Arab youth have been targeted in many of these incidents, from New York to Berlin to Copenhagen.
In response to the attacks on Palestine demonstrations, the NY4Palestine coalition – of which Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is a member – launched the Palestine Freedom Fund, with the call:
“Our Palestinian communities are under attack. Help us stand together to fight criminalization and support targeted youth!
Every day, Palestinian youth and activists for Palestine are targeted for criminalization, surveillance, protest arrests and police brutality.
The Palestine Freedom Fund works to support bail and legal expenses for Palestinian organizers, activists for Palestine and community members targeted for persecution. Your donation will help to protect our communities and support the movement for Palestinian liberation. Let’s get our detained and arrested activists FREE!
As a first initiative, we are fundraising for bail/legal support funds for Palestinian youth arrested at New York City demonstrations for Palestine.”
The Palestine Freedom Fund has already received significant support from the community and is accepting donations now at: https://palestinefreedomfund.org
Your donation will be processed by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network through our fiscal sponsor, the Alliance for Global Justice, a U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Palestine Freedom Fund is managed by the NY4Palestine Coalition, an alliance including Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition – NY; Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network; and Within Our Lifetime – United for Palestine.
