Final Preparation - Protest in Solidarity with Imprisoned Palestinian MPs


inminds
26 October 2012

As final preparations are made for Sundays protest (2pm on Sunday 28th October 2012) outside the British Parliament in solidarity with imprisoned Palestinian MPs we share a glimpse of the placards and leaflets that activists will hold and give out on the day.

Free all Palestinian MPs & Ministers

Israel targets Palestinian democracy by arbitrarily abducting and locking up elected Palestinian MPs for indefinite periods of time with no charge and no trial.

As recently as 2009 nearly a third of the Palestinian Parliament was languishing in Israeli prisons and today there are still 13 imprisoned Palestinian MPs and Ministers, and Israel is busy abducting more.

At dawn on 15th July 2012 Israeli soldiers smashed in to the home of Palestinian MP Ahmad Abdul-Aziz Mubarak in Ramallah and kidnapped him. They ransacked his family home, shackling and blindfolding him before taking him to an unknown destination. He is being held in an Israeli dungeon indefinitely, without any charge or trail. This is not the first time Ahmad Mubarak has been kidnapped by Israeli soldiers, the last time was in 2006 when they kept him caged for 4 years.

Torture of prisoners was perfectly legal in Israel right up to 1999, and even with the change in law, with all the exception to the rule, nothing in reality has changed with 700 cases of torture being submitted and promptly ignored by the state prosecutor.

Human rights groups have documented routine torture including one prisoner being violently beaten for 80 hours whilst being told his mother was dying. Even outside of interrogation the prisoners aren't safe, father of four, MP Mohammad Al-Natsheh was beaten up by prison guards on his way to the court.

Solidarity with Palestinian Hunger Strikers

We will also be protesting in solidarity with Palestinian hunger strikers. On 28th October Ayman Sharawna will be on his 120th day without food whilst Samer Al-Issawi will be on his 89 days of hunger strike.

Latest news indicates that Ayman Sharawna has of today (24 October) stopped drinking water. A lawyer of the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) managed to visit Ayman Sharawna yesterday (23 October) at the Ramla Prison Clinic; Ayman told him that he refuses to be exiled in exchange for his release, and will continue his strike “until freedom or death”.

He added that the Prison Administration keeps moving him from one room to another, and completely isolated him from the rest of the detainees, in an attempt to prevent him from getting the needed rest, and to deprive him from communicating with other detainees.

"Officers of the Prison Administration held several meetings with me, and proposed deporting me or placing me under Administrative Detention without trial”, Sharawna stated, “I will never accept to be deported or imprisoned without charges, I will continue my strike".

Sharawna's health is seriously deteriorating, he repeatedly loses consciousness, and faces repeated sharp migraines, headaches, and is gradually losing his memory.

Samer Al-Issawi, like Ayman al-Sharawna was released as part of the Shalit swap deal Israel made, but once Israeli soldier Shalit was released Israel reneged on the deal and re-arrested both men. Samer Al-Issawi, like Ayman al-Sharawna, has been imprisoned under Israel's infamous 'administrative detention' which means they have not been charged with anything and there is no trial and yet they have been locked up indefinitely on a rolling 6 month prison sentence. Lawyers who visited Samer Al-Issawi on 8th October said his health is rapidly deteriorating, he suffers from dizziness, permanent headache and several chronic diseases. The Israeli prison service is refusing to transfer him to the prisons medical centre for treatment.

Human Rights Defender Ayman Nasser abducted to torture den

On Sunday we will also be demanding the immediate release of Ayman Nasser, a human rights defender working for Addameer the Palestinian Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association. Father of four, Ayman Nasser was abducted from his home last week when Israeli soldiers raided his home with dogs. He is currently being interrogated at the notorious Moskobiyyeh detention centre infamous for torture. He has not been charged with anything other than defending the rights of Palestinian prisoners.

"For most journalists, whether they realize it or not, are groomed to be tribunes of an ideology that regards itself as non-ideological, that presents itself as the natural center, the very fulcrum of modern life. This may very well be the most powerful and dangerous ideology we have ever known because it is open-ended. This is liberalism."
