Support Samer Issawi
After more than 8 months on hunger strike against his illegal detention, Ayman Sharawna has been removed by Israel to Gaza where he has been reunited with family members.
Samer Issawi is continuing to fight his imprisonment and has been on hunger strike for 244 days. Despite the urgency, Ofer Military Court has decided to hold 3 court sessions for Samer in April. He refused Israel’s offer to ‘deport’ him to Gaza. Follow his campaign on twitter and facebook and please continue to protest against his imprisonment to the Foreign Office.

Take action: Palestinian prisoners’ day
Join the global campaign to Stop Administrative Detention, a form of detention without charge or trial. Adameer – the prisoners’ rights organisation in Palestine – have launched a campaign against administrative detention to coincide with Palestinian Prisoners’ Day – 17th April. Visit the PSC website for information on protests and events.
Administrative detention empowers Israel’s military commanders to detain an individual for up to six months. This process can be continued indefinitely. Detainees are not informed of the reasons of their detention; neither are their lawyers
Please ask your MP to sign this EDM or write to the Foreign Secretary to urge the UK Government to pressure Israel to release administrative detainees and to put an end to such an unjust, arbitrary and cruel system of incarceration without trial.

President Obama: welcome to racism!
As President Obama visits Israel and the occupied West Bank, the UN committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination has called on Israel to repeal all discriminatory laws and discriminatory bills to ensure non-Jewish communities’ equal access to work and social benefits and political participation “enshrined in the Convention.” This comes following news that hate speech from Israeli public figures doubled in 2012. Human Rights group, Adalah have produced a new database of the more than 60 discriminatory Israeli laws.
