Before International Women’s Day – and the International Women’s Strike US/ Paro Internacional de Mujeres EUA – demand freedom for Lina Jarbouni, the longest-held of 52 female Palestinian political prisoners, including 12 minor girls, detained by Israel.
Lina al-Jarbouni is from Arabba al-Batouf village, near the Palestinian City of Akka (Akko – Acre), in the north of the country.
She was born to a Palestinian family on January 11, 1974 and holds Israeli citizenship.
On April 18, 2002, al-Jarbouni was arrested and interrogated for more than 30 days at the al-Jalama interrogation facility where she was tortured and abused.
She was subsequently sentenced by an Israeli court to 17 years imprisonment, accused of “aiding the enemy.”
Israel refused to release al-Jarbouni during the Shalit Prison-Swap deal with the Palestinian resistance in Gaza.
Stand with Lina to demand that Israel release her and all 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners immediately, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements now.
Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over the companies’ support for Israeli crimes.
Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
