Al-Awda Urgent Action Alert for Hana Yahya Al-Shalabi:

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 25, 2012 by ahlamhelwa

Al-Awda, The Palestine Right To Return Coaltion calls on all people of
conscience to take immediate action to help save the life of
Palestinian female political prisoner Hana Yahya Al-Shalabi who has
been illegaly detained by Israeli authorities under the guise of
“administrative detention” without any charge or trial whatsoever.

Hana was an “administrative detainee” with NO charge for over 2 years
before she was released in October last year as a part of the
Shalit prisoner swap. She has been refusing food since her recapture
and is on day 9 of her hunger strike against her renewed
“administrative detention” again with NO charge.

This has been a common practice by the Israeli court system for
Palestinians who courageously challenge Israel’s brutal and illegal
occupation of Palestine. Most recently was the case of Khader Adnan who
was also detained on a similar premise of “administrative detention”
without charges or trial. Due to his ill-treatment in jail he held an
unprecedented hunger strike of 67 days before the Israeli occupation
authorities were finally pressured by worldwide support for Khader
Adnan. He is now due to be released on April 17, 2012.

Please join the voices and support around the world to save Hana
Al-Shalabi’s life and demand her immediate release from prison! Take
action now!
