On Saturday, 22 January, Plate-forme Charleroi-Palestine in Charleroi, Belgium, visited the Chatelineau open-air market as part of the campaign to free Ahmad Sa’adat, a leader of the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and the national liberation movement as a whole. A team of activists carried a large sign and distributed materials and information as part of the International Week of Action to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners.

Participants distributed flyers and information, talked with vendors and passers-by and took solidarity photos in support of the campaign. The flyers urge supporters to write letters to Ahmad Sa’adat behind bars to express solidarity. Letter-writing to Palestinian prisoners both boosts the morale of the prisoners while also making it clear to the Israeli occupation that they will not be isolated from their supporters and comrades around the world.

With this event, Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is honoured to announce that the Plate-forme Charleroi-Palestine has decided to join the Samidoun Network as a member organization! For years, the Plate-forme, based in Charleroi, Belgium, has supported campaigns launched by Samidoun and disseminated articles and reports.

The Plate-forme Charleroi-Palestine has been very active in mobilizing to free Georges Abdallah and all Palestinian prisoners in Belgium.

As part of its assembly on 15 January 2022, the members of Plate-forme Charleroi-Palestine decided to join the network in order to make our collective work more effective.

Samidoun members around the world are very excited to work and struggle together with the Plate-forme Charleroi-Palestine and increase our level of coordination and collective organizing to free all Palestinian prisoners and liberate Palestine.

To get involved and learn more about the Plate-forme, visit the Charleroi pour la Palestine website, or connect with the Plate-forme on Facebook.

We encourage all to join the Plate-forme for their next event — a meeting with Saïd Bouamama, author of the book, “L’Affaire Georges Ibrahim Abdallah.” Georges Abdallah, a Lebanese Arab struggler for Palestine, has been imprisoned for over 37 years in France. Join the event on Saturday, 5 February at 5:00 pm at Livre ou Verre, Passage de la Bourse 6, in Charleroi, Belgium.
