Hearing For Ism Prisoners Tomorrow

Hearing For Ism Prisoners Tomorrow

The hearing for the eight imprisoned international peace activists has been set for tomorrow thursday july 17th at 11:30 AM at the Tel Aviv district court, 1 Weizman St., corner of Shaul Hamelech.

The eight activists began refusing food last night in protest over the abuse of Palestinian prisoners and in solidarity with Palestinian political prisoners hungerstriking across Israel. They were also demanding their immediate and unconditional release as they were arrested while non-violently protesting illegal occupation policies and violation of Palestinian human rights.

This morning the Israeli police at the Ariel settlement police station punished the activists for their hungerprotest by taking away their books, pens, papers, cigarettes and phone cards that had been brought to them by israeli supporters.

Four of the Activistis Tobias Karlsson (SWEDEN), Tarek Loubani (CANADA), Fredrick Lind (DENMARK) and Bill Capowski (USA) were arrested on july 9, for sitting in a peace tent in Arrabony village near Jenin in protest over the confiscation of palestinian land for the building of the Apartheid wall by Israel. The other four, Daniel Knutsson (SWEDEN), Alex Perry (UK), Saul Reid (UK) and Thomas Pellas (FRANCE) were arrested on july 10 in the city of Nablus, for parttaking in a non-violent action removing roadblocks in defence of the Palestinian's human right of freedom of movement. Since their arrest their hearing has been postponed twice and they have been denied bail. Please come out and support if you can!
