Scoop Video: Peace Activists Ask Captors To Release Harmeet Sooden
Palestine groups held a vigil in Aotea Square in central Auckland on Monday to show the world that Harmeet Sooden and his fellow captors are peaceful men.
Harmeet Sooden was a member of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and a friend to many in the group. SJP are calling on his captors to be merciful and release him and the other peace workers without harm. Harmeet is in Iraq solely for peaceful purposes and is passionate about taking an active role in giving humanitarian aid to the Iraqi people.
