UPDATE 07/12/17: President Trump’s announcement yesterday, recognising unified Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, further undermines the human rights of the Palestinian people and is likely to inflame tensions across the region. Right now, activists like Issa and Farid need your support. Take action.
Take action to campaign for Farid & Issa, two activists facing baseless charges for their peaceful protest.
Farid al-Atrash and Issa Amro want an end to Israeli settlements – a war crime stemming from Israel’s 50-year occupation of Palestinian land. Dedicated to non-violence, the two activists brave constant attacks by soldiers and settlers. In February 2016, Issa and Farid marched peacefully against settlements and the Israeli occupation. As a result, they face ludicrous charges clearly designed to obstruct their human rights work.
Tell Israel to drop all charges against Farid and Issa immediately.
