Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network received this message from Palestinian prisoners in occupation jails to all of those who have participated in the international events and actions during the Week of Action to Free Ahmad Sa’adat and All Palestinian Prisoners, 14-24 January 2023.

A message from the prisoners of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in the occupation jails to the supporters of the international campaign to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners:

In recent years, many people have been told that we have reached the end of the revolutionary era, that the time of revolutionaries is over, and only liberalism, individualism and selfishness are dominant in this world. However, proof that this world is still turbulent with revolutionary spirit is found in the international campaign of solidarity with the leader Ahmad Sa’adat, Abu Ghassan. He is a revolutionary shout that reminds the world that revolution is not only an idea and a choice, but a human duty as well.

The voice of Abu Ghassan, the imprisoned leader, is a revolutionary shout from the depths of the dungeons of the enemy, reminding us of the revolution’s symbols and goals, including lifting injustice and oppression from people wherever they are. Palestine is not an imagined geography, it is part of this world and still represents the destination of revolutionaries everywhere.

To all comrades in the international campaign spread throughout the world…To the free people of the world…Your support for the leader Ahmad Sa’adat is an integral and important part of all efforts calling for and promising revolutionary upsurge to confront the forces of occupation and injustice. Continue your struggle, support and solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and with freedom fighters around the world. These efforts remain a source of pride for all of us.

Finally, this brief message of ours does not come only to support Abu Ghassan, but rather what he embodies and represents: steadfastness, dignity and humanity in the face of injustice. The cause of the prisoners transcends borders, geographies, walls and parallel time. It is a revolution confronting injustice in which our prisoners unite with all of the revolutionary prisoners around the world in the dungeons of oppression and persecution, especially Comrade Georges Abdallah and many other sons and daughters of the revolution.

Until we meet one day on the land of liberated Palestine,

Your comrades in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in the occupation prisons
