Alert 10th Mar 2017: International Women's Day Vigil In Solidarity With Palestinian Women Political Prisoners
9 March 2017
DATE: Friday 10th March 2017, 3pm - 5pm
LOCATION: Under Hungerford / Golden Jubilee Bridges on the Southbank (between London Eye and Southbank Centre) (near Waterloo station / across river from Embankment tube)
To mark International Women's Day, Inminds human rights group will on Friday 10th March 2017 hold a vigil on the Southbank of the river Thames in London to highlight the plight of Palestinian women prisoners in Israeli occupation jails, and to demand their freedom.
Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "Today there are 65 Palestinian women political prisoners, including 12 young girls and 16 mothers suffering in rat infested HP powered Israeli dungeons where torture is routine and the basics of human life like food, clothing, blankets and basic medical care are scarce. 11 of the women are in dire need of medical attention, several having been thrown in prison with bullet wounds after having been shot multiple times. Some are held without charge or trial under Israel's illegal administrative detention. All the women are held across the border in Israel in contravention of article four of the Geneva conventions, making it near impossible for their families and children to visit them. We are here to show our solidarity; and to share their stories of courage and resilience under the harshest of conditions; and to demand their unconditional freedom. We are also here to demand that the American multi-national company HP / HPE stop its complicity in these crimes. Their profiting from the torture and caging of women and young girls is repugnant and unacceptable."
Inminds chair Abbas Ali added "Palestine's longest serving woman prisoner Lena Jarboni, having been tortured, has been mercilessly caged for 15 years despite suffering many medical conditions. When other prisoners were released under the prison exchange agreement, the Israeli government specifically denied Lena her freedom. We are especially here today to demand her freedom."
Please join us on Friday 10th March 2017 on the Southbank of the river Thames under Hungerford Bridge near the Southbank Centre.

"You cannot simplify the question of violence.. You look at human history - the American revolution, the civil war, the end of slavery in the United States, the African National Congress, the end of colonialism - by and large these were some combination of popular social uprisings and social movements and non-violent protests AND armed resistance. Now that doesn't mean I'm advocating for any armed action today, I'm not. I'm committed to finding ways of acting and speaking and making people laugh and doing art and disrupting the war machine in other ways, but I think focusing on violence when we have the comfort of being protected by mass of armed violence is not non-violence at all.. if you are pointing to the mass of violence and who's doing the mass of violence in the world today, you have to look to state violence - that's people bombing whole cities from the air..
