Free Gaza Movement : Who Will Speak for the Palestinian Prisoners? Who will speak for the Children?

15 Jun
June 15, 2010 — As survivors of Israel's brutal attack in international waters begin their testimonies of murder and mayhem on the sea, every one of them reminds us that, although they were imprisoned and brutalized for three days, Palestinian prisoners have no voice, no public forum to tell their stories.  


And Israel also arrests and tortures Palestinian children, throwing them into the adult prison population, more than 350 of them at any one time, some as young as 12. 

Israel imprisons Palestinian activists who have no voice, holding them in administrative detention for months or charging them with resistance to occupation. 

When you listen to the stories from the six ships that were hijacked and the passengers who were kidnapped, remember that Palestinians don't get to stand in front of a microphone and talk about the brutality of Israeli prisons. 

We must continue to break the siege of Gaza and raise our voices against the occupation in the West Bank. Donate to the Free Gaza movement, join the BDS movement, support our voyages by calling your representatives and insisting that Israel abide by international law.
