International Campaign in Support of Palestinian Political Prisoners
The Free Palestine Alliance and Addameer are calling for days of action during the
week of April 11 – 17 in support of Palestinian Political Prisoners.
April 17, 2010 marks the 34th anniversary of Palestinian Political Prisoners Day.
As this historic and important day approaches, several Palestinian organizations
and solidarity partners feel it is a critical time, now more than ever, to shed
light on the unsung and sometimes forgotten heroes of the ongoing struggle to
liberate Palestine. There are a total of 7,300 Arab prisoners. Among them are 33
women and 300 children. 400 are from Jerusalem and the 1948 occupied Palestinian
areas, 745 from Gaza Strip, and 6,155 from the West Bank.

by holding workshops, teach-ins, film screenings and various activities throughout
On Saturday April 17, 2010, bring together community and allies to fly kites in
support of the thousands of Palestinian political prisoners.
