Action Alert! The Balata Two Are in Ariel

Action Alert! The Balata Two Are in Ariel


Two internationals, Andreas Koninek from Sweden, and Andrew Muncie of Scotland, were arrested early this morning after attempting to defend a house in Balata refugee camp from being destroyed. Unfortunatly, the heroic attempt was unsuccessful, and the two are now in Ariel police station, a place familiar to more than one activist.

Please consider calling Ariel or the Ministry of Interior, and expressing your outrage at the illegal actions of the Israeli military. Ask for the release of Andrew and Andreas as peaceful protestors against military brutality.

You can phone the Ministry of Interior at: +972 2 670 1648

You can also flood Ariel prison with calls demanding the immediate release of all detainees. The best numbers to call are the officers but if they are unreachable, please call the General Info line.

Ariel Prison General Info: +972 3 906 5444

Ariel Prison Officer - Ami Baran and Haim Fadlan: +972 3 906 5406 or +972 3 906 5416

Please also considering donating to the ISM Legal Defense Fund. Recent months of work have all but drained our resources. Money is needed to continue the fight on the legal battle. More information can be found about how to contribute at
