NYC: March to free Khalida Jarrar at the Women’s Unity Rally
19 January 2019 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
Saturday, 19 January
9:30 am – 2:00 pm
Thurgood Marshall U.S. Courthouse
New York, NY
Palestinian parliamentarian, feminist and leftist leader Khalida Jarrar is imprisoned without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation. Her “administrative detention” order was renewed for the fourth time on Thursday, October 25. Jarrar had already been jailed without charge or trial for 16 months. The new detention order once again renewed her imprisonment for four more.
Approximately 480 Palestinian prisoners are held under “administrative detention,” out of nearly 5,500 total Palestinian political prisoners. “Administrative detention” orders are indefinitely renewable. Palestinian prisoners have spent years at a time jailed through orders renewed repeatedly on the basis of so-called “secret files” to which both the detainees and their lawyers are denied access.
As the end of her latest detention order nears, stand with Jarrar to demand that Israel release her, other “administrative detainees” and all Palestinian prisoners.
Support the Palestinian national and prisoners’ movements, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
Meet on the steps of the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse at 9:30 am, then cross Centre Street to Foley Square at 10:00.
