Demand the immediate release of human rights defender Salah Hamouri

Palestinian-French former prisoner, Addameer's field researcher and advocate for Palestinian prisoners’ rights Salah Hamouri was arrested by Israeli occupation forces in a pre-dawn raid on his home in the neighborhood of Kufr Aqab on Wednesday, 23 August. Later, Hamouri was taken to Al-Moskobyeh (Russian Compound) interrogation center, where his detention has been extended until Sunday, 27 August 2017, for further interrogation.  Salah Hamouri, 32, is a Palestinian-French dual citizen and former Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails. Hamouri was released in Wafa al-Ahrar exchange deal in 2011 after spending seven years in Israeli occupation prisons. In addition, he was banned from entering the West Bank by an Israeli military order until September 2016, and his wife Elsa Lefort is currently banned from entering Palestine.   As a lawyer and legal advocate working with Addameer, Hamouri continues to campaign daily for rights and freedom for Palestinian prisoners and the Palestinian people. Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association strongly urges you to take an immediate action against the continuous targeting of Salah Hammouri, which is part of the continued attack on Palestinian human rights defenders and civil society organizations. It also constitutes one arrest in the context of continuous arrest campaigns against Palestinians.  In French: Demande de libération immédiate pour le défenseur des droits de l’homme Salah Hamouri Salah Hamouri, ancien prisonnier franco-palestinien, chercheur pour l’association Addameer et représentant des droits des prisonniers palestiniens a été arrêté par les forces d’occupation israéliennes, lors d’un raid de nuit, à son domicile de Kufr Aqab, ce mercredi 23 août. M. Hamouri a ensuite été emmené au centre d’interrogatoires Al-Moskobyeh (quartier russe) qui a décidé de prolonger sa détention et les interrogatoires jusqu’au dimanche 27 août. Salah Hamouri, 32 ans, est un binational franco-palestinien, ancien prisonnier palestinien des prisons israéliennes. Il a été libéré lors de l’échange de prisonniers de Wafa al-Ahrar, après avoir passé 7 ans dans les prisons de l’occupation israélienne. En plus de cela, il a été interdit d’entrer en Cisjordanie par un ordre militaire israélien jusque septembre 2016 et sa femme, Elsa Lefort est aujourd’hui empêchée de se rendre en Palestine. En tant qu’avocat et représentant légal de l’association Addameer, Salah Hamouri accomplit au quotidien un travail de plaidoyer pour les droits et la liberté des prisonniers palestiniens et du peuple palestinien. Par cette pétition, l’association Addameer de soutien aux prisonniers et aux droits de l’homme vous demande d’agir immédiatement contre les attaques répétées qui ciblent Salah Hamouri, attaques constitutives du harcèlement continu contre les défenseurs palestiniens des droits de l’homme et les organisations de la société civile ; sachant que cette arrestation a lieu dans un contexte permanent de campagnes d’arrestations par les Israéliens.

Demand that Saudi Arabia ends juvenile executions

Imagine being arrested at 16 and sentenced to die by beheading and crucifixion. Your crime: a peaceful protest asking for equal rights. This is the fate that awaits Ali Mohammad al-Nimr and three others after being arrested for protesting for democratic reforms in Saudi Arabia. All three were juveniles at the time of the arrest. Amnesty International, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, and talk show host Bill Maher have all called for clemency for these innocent boys. So far, Saudi Arabia says it plans to go forward with the execution. Saudi Arabia has no reason to stop. Allies like the US continue to support its regime and sell it billions of dollars in weapons without holding them responsible for human rights. We are calling on the US to take a stand against barbaric acts like juvenile executions and demand that Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, Dawood Al Marhoon, and Abdullah Al Zaher, Mutjaba al Suweikat be pardoned and released. This could be accomplished by amending House Joint Resolution 90, a bipartisan effort to ban weapons sales to Saudi Arabia unless it can ensure it is taking all necessary precautions to protect civilians where the weapons are used. Tell Congress to add a measure demanding that Saudi Arabia ends juvenile executions and frees Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, Dawood Al Marhoon, Abdullah Al Zaher and Mujtaba Al-Suwaiket Human rights groups repeatedly document cases of brutality. Saudi Arabia has been cited by numerous human rights groups for its horrific punishments, especially towards minority communities and women. Ali’s only crime is that he believes in democracy and that everyone should have equal rights. The world should come to the rescue of a young man who demonstrated the courage to stand up for equal rights at just 16 years old.  Saudi Arabia does not announce when it will carry out an execution. Any day could be these boy’s last unless we take action. Please add your name to the petition, share with friends and family, and tell your member of Congress that there should be no more weapons until juvenile executions are stopped and Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, Dawood Al Marhoon, Abdullah Al Zaher and Mujtaba Al-Suwaiket are freed.

Take Action to Free Hunger-Striking Palestinian Journalist Mohammed al-Qeeq

Palestinian journalist Mohammed al-Qeeq is currently jailed by the Israeli occupation without charge or trial under administrative detention. He has launched a hunger strike to demand his freedom and an end to administrative detention. On 22 February, after 17 days on hunger strike, he was suddenly transferred to the Ramle prison hospital after a decline in his health.  Al-Qeeq is one of nearly 550 Palestinians imprisoned without charge or trial under administrative detention. Administrative detention orders are issued for one to six month periods, but are indefinitely renewable, which means that Palestinians can be held for years on end without charge or trial at the order of the Israeli occupation military. These orders are issued on the basis of "secret evidence" to which both the detainee and their lawyer is denied access. Administrative detention as practiced by the Israeli state is a systematic mechanism of colonial repression and violates international law. This is Mohammed al-Qeeq's second time on hunger strike. In 2016, he conducted a 94-day hunger strike to win his freedom from administrative detention without charge or trial, winning his release in May 2016. Administrative detention violates international law and Palestinian human rights. When international agencies and officials are silent, it provides yet more space for Israeli administrative detention to continue. We urge you to contact the Israeli government and officially express your concern for the health of Mohammed al-Qeeq and call for his immediate release and the end of the policy of administrative detention.
