From the Prisoners of Qalqilya

From the Prisoners of Qalqilya to the Prisoners in the Jails of the Israeli Occupier

The Sharon government released over 300 hundred of us this week, but he forgot to mention that the occupying forces had arrested over 300 of us in the month of July, the first month of his “so-called” peace with the Palestinians

Now, some of us have been sent home to Qalqilya, a huge prison holding 40,000 Palestinians. Tomorrow, August 12 at 10:00 am, we will march to the 8-meter Apartheid Wall and release doves into the sky, for they are the only species who can leave.

They will fly in honor of you from the Palestinian Prisoners Club, the ISM internationals, and the Israeli Peace Groups.

We have not forgotten.
