Open Letter to The German Embassy of Denmark
From the ”Boykot Israel” Campaign
STOP GERMANY’S HUNT FOR PALESTINE ACTIVISTS
Palestine Activists suffer systematic repression in Germany. At the moment, authorities threaten Zaid Abdulnasser with not renewing his residence permit. Zaid is a Palestinian refugee from Syria, and a coordinator for the Samidoun network in Germany. Other Palestine activists have already been forced out of Germany, among them activist and author Khaled Barakat. German authorities systematically accuse all who support Palestine of anti-semitism.
At the same time Germany will uncritically support the Zionist state Israel, despite more and more people around whe world defining Israel as an Apartheid state.
Stop Germany’s attacks on Palestine Activists’ political rights!
