About this event
Following the victory of hunger striking political prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash after 141 days, join us as part of the international week of action in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners and for the release of revolutionary leader Ahmad Sa’adat.
This event will feature:
– A screening of Abby Martin’s Empire Files documentary on the struggle inside Zionist jails.
– Analysis of British collaboration in the imprisonment of Ahmad Sa’adat.
– Discussion on how we can build effective solidarity in Britain.
Funds raised will go towards supporting the Samidoun campaign and Hakoura refugees cooperative.
Donate what you can to support the campaign.
“Today, it is critical to besiege the racist, settler-colonial Zionist project, and indeed, to delegitimize this project, and to support the struggle of our people for liberation, self-determination and return as the pathway to a democratic political solution for Palestine. Our people will not bow to the governments of “Israel,” including the current government which represents the will of the colonizers and the ultra-extremist Zionist terror. I call on all forces of progress, freedom and democracy to stand by the struggle of our people through all forms of boycott: political, economic, academic and cultural of the occupation state and the creation of a real economic cost for its industries of colonization and settlement and escalating the global campaigns for boycott of all corporations that support and invest in the occupation militarily and economically.” – Ahmad Sa’adat
As we mark the 12th anniversary of the Israeli sentencing of Palestinian national liberation and international Left leader Ahmad Sa’adat, and the 12th anniversary of the brutal Israeli assault on Gaza, “Operation Cast Lead,” Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network urges all who stand with Palestine and justice for the Palestinian people to join us between 15 and 23 January 2021 in a week of action to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners.
