American activist in Palestine under arrest

American activist in Palestine under arrest, facing deportation

Earlier today (Nov. 13th), during a peaceful demonstration against Israel's Apartheid Barrier in Tulkarem, American ISM activist Bruce Groenveld was arrested while attempting to protect a fellow activist from arrest. Despite the nonviolent character of the event, the Israeli soldiers responded with considerable violence, callously beating protesters, many of whom were elders.

Police have fabricated the allegation that Bruce threw stones at, and attacked, an Israeli Police Officer, and he is being held at the Ariel police station. They will call for the revocation of his Visa, and subsequent deportation tomorrow at a hearing with the Ministry of the Interior. We urge you to call both the police station and the Ministry of the Interior to challenge his deportation, and call for his release.
