The Holy Land Five are five Palestinian charity workers in the United States who were relentlessly harassed, targeted and pursued in a travesty of justice, until they were finally convicted for their work providing for people in Palestine living in poverty. Three of the Five remain imprisoned in the U.S. today: Ghassan Elashi and Shukri Abu Baker, both sentenced to 65 years, and Mufid Abdulqader, sentenced to 20 years.
Recently, Within Our Lifetime, together with organizations like the Coalition for Civil Freedoms and Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, re-launched the campaign for their release. Join the Masar Badil for a discussion about the case, the campaign to free these Palestinian political prisoners in U.S. jails, and how you can get involved — in North America and around the world.
Hear from: Nerdeen Kiswani (Within Our Lifetime); Zaira Abu Baker (daughter of Shukri Abu Baker); Charlotte Kates (Samidoun)
