Alert: Global solidarity with the Hares Boys - Protests across the world for Palestinian children tortured and caged in Israel


inminds
22 September 2013

Over the next 10 days we will, inshAllah, see co-ordinated joint protests and events across many countries around the world all in solidarity with the Hares Boys - five Palestinian children tortured and caged in a G4S secured Israeli prison facing life sentence for a crime that never happened! Activists in Argentina, Canada, Chile, France, UK and Uruguay will unite and be the voice of the 5 Palestinian children who have already been languishing in an Israeli dungeon for over 6 moths without a trial.



BACKGROUND

On 14th March 2013 in what appears to have been a car accident when a illegal Israeli settler car crashed in to the back of an Israeli truck which had stopped to change a flat tire resulting in four people being hurt, was later at the behest of angry settlers presented as an attack by Palestinian stone throwing youth.

The truck drivers earlier testimony that he had stopped due to a flat tire was replaced with the new reason being that he had seen stones by the road, and an accident that nobody saw suddenly became a terror attack with 61 witnesses including the police!

Over the next few days over 50 masked Israeli soldiers with attack dogs stormed the local village of Hares in the early hours of the morning and in waves of violent arrests kidnapped the children of the village. In total 19 children were taken to the infamous G4S secured children's dungeon at Al Jalame and locked up in solitary confinement for up to 2 weeks in filthy windowless 1m by 2m cells with no mattress. The children were violently tortured and sexual threats were made against the female members of their families in order to coerce confessions from the boys.

With the confessions and the new “eye-witness” statements, five of the Hares boys were charged with 25 counts of attempted murder each, even though there were only four people in the car. Apparently the military court had decided that 25 stones were thrown, each with an "intent to kill". The five boys - Ali Shamlawi, Mohammed Kleib, Mohammed Mehdi Suleiman, Tamer Souf, and Ammar Souf are currently locked up in another G4S secured facility - Megiddo prison where G4S provides the entire central command room.

The military court will hear the case in October. A study conducted by the Israeli NGO 'No Legal Frontiers' over a 12 month period concluded that 100% of Palestinian children brought before the military court are convicted. If the five boys are convicted they will be locked up for over 25 years - five young lives ruined with no evidence of a crime let alone their guilt.

We are demanding the immediate and unconditional release of all the children and hold G4S complicit in Israel's crimes, particularly in the torture of Palestinian children.

 

GLOBAL SOLIDARITY EVENT - #FreeHaresBoys


The global solidarity event for the Hares Boys will start in Perpignan, in Southern France with a protest on Saturday 21st September by our friends in the Collectif paix et justice en Palestine.

Then on 26th September our friends at Toronto Students for Justice in Palestine (TSJP) will hold a day of action at the University of Toronto.


On Friday 27th September we will continue with a protest in the UK outside the London headquarters of G4S who provide the security for the prison and torture den the children suffer in. On the same day in Cordoba, in Argentina our friends in the Organización de Unión Planetaria will organise an Open Cabildo (peoples assembly) on the plight of the Hares Boys in particular, and all Palestinian prisoners in general. A document will be created from the meeting for the government to push a resolution to censure the Zionist state. Also in Argentina on the same day our friends in the Unadikum Argentina will hold a solidarity event at the Obelisk of Buenos Aires. In Chile there will be several protests on the same day including in Temuco by our friends at Juventudes Palestinas de Temuco, and in Valdivia by our friends at Juventudes Arabes por Palestina.

Then on 28th September our friends from CAPJPO - EuroPalestine will lead a protest in Paris in France.

And finally on Monday 30th September in Uruguay our friends in the Comité Palestina Libre and the facebook community "I am Palestinian I am not a terrorist" will protest outside the Israeli Embassy in Montevideo demanding freedom for the Hares Boys.

To show global solidarity for the Hares Boys, all the events will use the same 'Free the Hares Boys' leaflets and posters in three different languages. All the events will have live feeds on twitter using the hashtag #FreeHaresBoys.

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. The campaign was launched by Innovative Minds (inminds.com) and the Islamic Human Rights Commission (ihrc.org) on the occasion of Al Quds Day 2012 (on 17th August 2012), since then we have held actions every fortnight in support of Palestinian prisoners, if you can spare two hours twice a month then please join the campaign by coming to the next action.

Featured MP3 Podcast

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!
