Prisoner Day Action in Hebron

IMG_8979

On Thursday, April 17, approximately 300 people gathered at the Al Manara in H1 to stand in solidarity with the 5224 Palestinian prisoners now held in Israeli prisons.  All political parties were represented at the gathering, and each in turn raised their concerns. Speeches included the issue of the promise by Israel, as a part of the peace agreement, to release 104 Palestinian prisoners, and the real concern that Israel is now stalling on that promise, using the prisoners as “black mail.” This non-violent action ended with a musical quartet, consisting of oud, violin, drum and a singer offering tribute to the Palestinians still held in prison.
