Palestinian political prisoners’ day, 17 April 2013

Ask your MP to support  Early Day Motion 1222

Attend the Solidarity Protest on International Palestinian Prisoners Day (see below for details)

That this House notes with alarm Israel’s ongoing practice of administrative detention wherein many Palestinians are held indefinitely without being charged or being permitted to stand trial; further notes that this practice is in breach of a number of relevant international agreements and conventions including the 4th Geneva Convention and the European law for the prevention of torture or punishment of prisoners; further notes that the policy includes the deporting of Palestinian prisoners from the Occupied Palestinian Territories to Israel and the denial of regular family visits as well as the neglecting of the needs of child detainees; further notes the international community’s lack of substantive action against administrative detention which has led to hunger strikes; and calls on the Government to make renewed and increased representations to insist the Israeli government cancel this policy immediately and restore rights to all Palestinian prisoners.



Attend the Solidarity Protest on International Palestinian Prisoners Day

Wednesday 17 April, 16.30 to 19.00

Outside G4S UK & Ireland head office, 105 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QT


April 17, Palestinian Prisoners’ Day, is a day for solidarity actions with Palestinian prisoners. We are targeting G4S for its complicity with the criminal practices of the Israeli state. Palestinians are illegally held, many without charge or trial, in Israeli jails where physical violence and torture is commonplace. G4S provides services to the Ketziot and Meggido prisons and the Jerusalem (Russian Compound) and Kishon (Jalameh) detention facilities.
