American Citizen Arrested In Deir Qaddis Yesterday

Action Alert – American Citizen Arrested In Deir Qaddis Yesterday

Jerusalem -- Kristin (Flo) Razowsky, an American citizen, was arrested during a nonviolent direct action which took place in the village of Deir Qaddis near Budrus, west of Ramallah. International and Israeli activists joined the people of Deir Qaddis in their attempt to stop the work of the Israeli Army bulldozers in their village which will be totally surrounded by the Apartheid Wall along with 8 other villages.

Flo was detained by Israeli border police and taken to the Givat Zeev police station where she was interrogated and formally arrested around 6pm. She has been charged with staying in the country illegally and is facing deportation.

At 9:30pm last night, Flo was transferred to the Russian Compound in Jerusalem where she was interrogated again and held overnight. At 9am this morning, she was transferred to the Talpiot Immigration Police Station in Jerusalem. She is currently being transferred to the women's holding center in Hadera. She will try any nonviolent measure to resist her deportation, and is counting on your support.

Please contact the Israeli Ministry of Interior to protest.
