“Those who are silent
when others are oppressed
are guilty of oppression themselves”
Hussain ibn Ali (as)

  • When you see the suffering of the Palestinians, do you feel helpless?

  • You already boycott the companies that support Israel, but feel there must be something more you can do?

  • Are you an armchair activist, time to go beyond online petitions & social media posts to your friends?

  • Then its time you joined Inminds human rights group..

Palestinian Prisoners Campaign


Whilst we run several different campaigns on Palestine, our core campaign, launched five years ago on Al Quds Day is the Palestinian Prisoners Campaign. Israel's illegal occupation is enforced by mass abducts, torture and imprisonment of the Palestinian population.

Children are especially targeted. Last year between Oct 2015 and Aug 2016 Israel abducted and caged 2,320 Palestinian children, some as young as 11 years old - that's more than one child taken from their parents every 4 hours. Figures for Jerusalem show that 40% of the children were sexually abused by Israeli soldiers during arrest or interrogation. During interrogation 75% of Palestinian children detained by Israel are physically tortured. The United Nations "Rights Of The Child" report 4th July 2013 documents the brutal torture of Palestinian children as standard practice during interrogations in order to coerce confessions, usually to stone throwing which carries a sentence of up to 20 years' imprisonment.

The Palestinian Prisoners Campaign aims to raise awareness for the plight of Palestinian prisoners and build solidarity for their struggle and work towards their freedom. We work closely with the families of the prisoners, campaigning on their behalf, targeting the pressure points in the UK that might help secure their release in Palestine. Over the years, dozens of prisoners we have campaigned for have been released, some have unfortunately been rearrested and the campaign continues. As part of this campaign we target UK based companies that are complicit in Israel's prison system.

G4S


The British security company G4S secured Israel's prisons and interrogation centres where Palestinians, including young children, are caged and tortured. For over 4 years Inminds protested regularly outside the global headquarters of G4S; and at all its AGMs; and outside its key clients like the Labour Party Conference and UNICEF; and its major shareholders like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It was a long drawn out campaign which finally bore fruit last December 2016 when G4S announced it has sold most of its Israeli holdings including all its contracts with the Israeli prison service. The Financial Times reported the reason behind the G4S exit was to "extract itself from reputationally damaging work". Israel's Security Minister Gilad Erdan also admitted "BDS was a factor in the decision of security company G4S to sell their operations in Israel."

Hewlett Packard HP/HPE


The technology company HP implements and manages the server farm for the entire Israeli army and Ministry of Defense and provides Israeli prisons and interrogation centres the systems and servers needed to keep them operational. For nearly 3 years Inminds has been campaigning against HP, picketing their London HQ; their annual 'World Tour' and 'Discover' events; conferences which they have sponsored like Sustainable Brands; and shows where their VC's are speaking like BETT. This is an ongoing campaign which inshAllah, with your help, can also bear fruit.

During the holy month of Ramadan, as we move towards the Eid, I was going around Muslim shops in Tower Hamlets and elsewhere telling them that although they had collection boxes for the Mosque, although they had religious imagery in their shops, although they were selling dates to the faithful people to break their fast - the dates were made in Israel! They were stained with the blood of the Palestinian people! And Muslim shop keepers were selling them!
