Susan Barclay to be Forcibly Deported in Two Hours

Susan Barclay to be Forcibly Deported in Two Hours

I have just received a call from Susan Barclay who is in Mikhal Prison and spoke to me on a phone that had been smuggled into her.

She told me that the guards have told her that she is going to be deported at 10 pm tonight but she is determined to resist to stay in the country and continue the struggle for a free Palestine.

We have contacted her lawyer and he has told her that the deportation is a pre-emption of the legal process and is totally illegal and that if she is in the country tomorrow morning she he can defend her.

Susan has been working with the ISM in the city of Nablus for the past six months documenting Israeli war crimes against the people of Nablus and the surrounding villages and confronting the occupation of the West Bank through non-violent direct action. Because of this she was detained and arrested at an Israeli military checkpoint last Thursday and has been served with a deportation order on the basis that she is a security threat to the state of Israeli.

It is up to Susan now to see if she can successfully resist her deportation from the country but you can help her in this by contacting the Israeli embassy/ consulate in your part of the world and demanding that the Israeli authorities observe due process and that this extraordinary young woman be granted her day in court where she can defend herself against the charges that her presence in Israel and Palestine constitutes a threat to Israel's security.

Please contact your local Israeli mission and inform them that the world is watching and demand that the Ministry of the Interior abort this illegal deportation of a non-violent humanitarian activist.

The contact details for Israeli Missions around the world are as follows:

a.. Australia: 02 6273 1309 / 1300 b.. Canada: 613 567 6450 c.. France: 01 40 76 55 00 d.. Germany: 0228 934 6500 e.. Ireland: 01 668 0303 f.. Netherlands: 070 376 0500 g.. New Zealand: 04 472 2362 / 8 h.. UK: 020 7957 9500 i.. USA: 202 364 5500 If you are an Israeli supporter of the ISM you can phone the Prime Minister's Office on: 02 670 5555 / 10

The time now is 8 pm. You have 2 hours to help save Susan from deportation.
