Free Lina Khattab, imprisoned student and folkloric dancer

This petition had 970 supporters

Lina Khattab, 18-year-old first-year media student at Birzeit University and dancer in the El-FunounPalestinian cultural dance troupe, was arrested on 13 December during a march by Birzeit University students to Ofer military prison. 

She is active in Palestinian national and political activities at the university, and is one of a number of active Palestinian students who have been arrested and imprisoned in an Israeli attempt to clamp down on Palestinian students’ activity and organizing through student unions and protest groups.  Lina is being held without charges, and allegedly “investigated” on the bogus suspicion of “throwing stones,” an allegation used freely by Israeli military courts against all Palestinians who demand their rights through protest.

We, the free people of this world, demand that the Israeli government immediately release Lina from prison.
