Read our full statement: loom.ly/Aeh_n5Y
According to @PpsmoMedia, the Palestinian Prisoners Society: “This is part of a systematic [Israeli] policy of medical negligence and delays in providing treatment, which all the [Palestinian] prisoners are exposed to, not just Nasser.”

Gerad hat der zweite Prozesstag gegen Ende Gelände Pressesprecherin @SinaChom in Borna begonnen.
Wegen einer @Ende__Gelaende Blockade des Tagebaus Vereinigtes Schleenhain 2019 wird Sina Hausfriedensbruch vorgeworfen. Wir tweeten bis zur Urteilsverkündung aus dem Gerichtssaal.
Los geht's mit der Zeugenaussage eines Polizisten, der die Pressearbeit von @ende_gelaende offensichtlich aufmerksam verfolgt hat und auf Grundlage von "Social Media" aussagt, dass @SinaChom vor Ort war - die schüttelt nur lächelnd den Kopf, weil sie das sowieso angegeben hatte
Es geht heute ja auch nicht darum, ob sich @ende_gelaende der Zerstörung der #Klimakrise in den Weg stellt, sondern darum, ob unser legitimer Protest kriminalisiert wird...

1/ An honest thread on my #COP27 experience to date with 4 days left!!!
2/ This is a dystopian COP. The fragile trust between developed and developing further erodes as does the trust of citizens to their governments.
3/ Developed countries have sickeningly show that they do not care about the poor and marginalised citizens of the developing world as they challenge equity whilst speaking of urgency and vulnerability in the same breath. I am so disappointed.

Today isn't only #EnergyDay but also #CivilSocietyDay at #COP27.
Today, thousands of people are still in jail for daring to speak out for human rights, democracy & envr. integrity.
Today we remind leaders - once again - that there is no #ClimateJustice without #HumanRights.
A🧵 Image
Since #COP27 started, civil society observers have never felt so popular: innumerable local staff members have been taking pictures & videos of us, our phone & laptop screens. Some observers have been stopped at the entrance, not for an autograph but to get their bags checked!
And while this constant level of control is unacceptable for a @UN meeting, they offer only a mild insight into the struggle our sisters & brothers go through every day, when basic #HumanRights like the freedom of speech,
press & peaceful assembly are not upheld.

During COP27, we urge the Egyptian authorities to immediately and unconditionally release all those held simply for peacefully exercising their human rights, implementing criteria set by local NGOs for these releases: fairness, transparency, inclusiveness and urgency. 1/4
One of these prisoners is Alaa Abd El-Fattah, who is now on a water strike since the beginning of COP27.
A system that doesn't address the needs for climate justice and securing human rights is a system that has failed everyone – we need to keep both in mind. 2/4
Human rights and climate movements are stronger when we stand in solidarity together. Then we can also successfully push those in power to live up to significantly increased adaptation finance and immediately, drastically reduced greenhouse gas emissions. 3/4

Attempt to disrupt the press conference for #AlaaAbdelfattah at #COP27

“Egyptian ‘citizens’ attempted to derail & disturb the press conference giving us all a small sense of the regime of fears & silencing in the country right now” @amnesty’s @AgnesCallamard #FreeAlaa #SaveAlaa Image

“First he tried to give a speech and smear Alaa and Sanaa and then he began yelling and whatnot so security took him out”
The man who tried to disrupt the press conference for #AlaaAbdelfattah was Egyptian MP, Amr Darwish

Das iranische Parlament ebnet 14.000 Hinrichtungen den Weg. Wo bleibt der Aufschrei? Warum ist das heute nicht die dominierende Schlagzeile der Zeitungen weltweit? #FreeThemAll #IranRevolution #JinaMahsaAmini
In einer Zeile des inhaftierten Rappers #ToomajSalehi heißt es, das Regime verstünde sich darauf, Blut mit noch mehr Blut weg zu waschen. Wie Recht er damit hat! Um sich vom Mord an #JinaMahsaAmini reinzuwaschen, sollen 14.000 über die Klippe springen. Wie absurd u. unmenschlich!
Allerspätestens jetzt sollte klar sein, dass es ein "weiter so" in der deutschen Iran-Politik nicht geben darf. Jetzt die @HawarHelp-Petition unterschreiben! Es ist noch nicht zu spät, einen härteren Kurs gegenüber den Machthabern in #Iran einzuschlagen:

Alaa's letter written to his mother today:
"You know the story, but it’s important that I tell it again. This journey, I’ve walked it while mostly looking behind me, because I could see nothing in front of me except extinction .. the abyss. #FreeAlaa
Gradually, with each step, each delay, something reached me .. from a visit, from a letter, from a book, an image, from the book, from news of the campaign and news of Khaled. Things changed and I started looking towards the future, a future for us as a family.
#FreeAlaa
If one wished for death then a hunger strike would not be a struggle. If one were only holding onto life out of instinct then what’s the point of a strike? If you’re postponing death only out of shame at your mother’s tears then you’re decreasing the chances of victory ..

URGENT: Khalil Awawdeh has been on hunger strike for almost 6 months to protest his illegal imprisonment by Israel without charge or trial.

He is on the brink of death. We demand his freedom NOW, as well as the end of Israel's practice of administrative detention.

(thread)
Staring down the barrel of “administrative detention,” or indefinite incarceration by Israel without due process, Khalil Awawdeh courageously decided to join a long legacy of Palestinian hunger strikers, many of whom successfully achieved their freedom.
For Palestinian prisoners, hunger strikes are the last and only form of resistance.

Though grueling and life-threatening, strikes are also a reclamation of control over their bodies, and a testament to Israel’s failure to break their will and suppress their struggle for freedom.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” - Nelson Mandela

Apartheid ended in South Africa, & together we can end Israeli apartheid against Palestinians. On @NelsonMandela International Day we honour a life dedicated to the fight against racism & oppression.

#MandelaDay
🧵
Mandela recognised the similarities between apartheid South Africa & Israel's regime of oppression against Palestinians. He never forgot the pivotal role Israel played in supporting the apartheid regime in South Africa & undermining the global boycott against it.

#MandelaDay
As a leader of the South African liberation movement that used boycotts & sanctions to undermine the apartheid regime, Mandela helped to establish many of the principles that today guide & inspire the Palestinian-led, global #BDS movement for Palestinian rights.

VICTORY: Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh will be released on June 26!

He had been on hunger strike for 111 days to protest his indefinite detention by Israel without charge or trial.

We are overjoyed he will return to his family and moved by his courage and perseverance.
For prisoners, hunger strikes are the last and only available form of resistance.

The process is grueling and life-threatening, but it is also a reclamation of control over their bodies, and a testament to Israel’s failure to break their will and suppress their freedom struggle.
During his strike, Khalil lost over 100lbs, his eyesight weakened to the point of not being able to recognize his lawyer, and his hair almost completely fell out. We wish him a speedy recovery now that he has suspended his protest.

1/ Right now, 500 Palestinian political prisoners are undertaking a "mass united resistance movement" against administrative detention through a boycott of Israel's military courts. Read about it in this letter penned from inside Israel's apartheid jails: addameer.org/index.php/news…
2/ Administrative detention is an Israeli policy by which Palestinians are imprisoned indefinitely, without charge or trial, on secret evidence. It's a form of arbitrary detention, one element of apartheid, as recently described by @amnesty. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
3/ Israel’s use of administrative detention is increasing alongside broader repression of Palestinians, criminalised for calling out injustice, and for raising the call for freedom. NGOs like @Addameer are targeted over human rights work. #StandWithThe6 palcivilsociety.com

500 Palestinian administrative detainees have been boycotting Israeli military courts since Jan 1st.

Administrative detainees are political prisoners held by the israeli regime without charge or trial, indefinitely. So what does a boycott mean? 1/5
As part of the boycott, detainees & their lawyers refuse to attend court proceedings. Admin detainees don't get trials, but they do have judicial reviews where their detention orders are confirmed, upheld, appealed... this is what 500 detainees have boycotted for over a month 2/5
The boycotting detainees are across three Israeli prisons: Ofer, Mejiddo, and Naqab, and we've seen the detainees begin to add other collective actions like refusing food for the day. The boycott is disrupting and challenging the farcical Israeli military judicial system. 3/5

This NYTimes story about a planned prison closure is the latest public relations success of prison guards, the real estate business, & the Chamber of Commerce to convince us that we should keep people in cages to maintain jobs & real estate values & commerce. 1/

‘…many people in Susanville, which cherishes its small-town way of life — “we’re not rural, we’re frontier,” said one resident — relied on jobs at the nearby sawmills and on cattle ranches.’ AND many relied on jobs with the state or Fed govts in Forestry or Fish & Wildlife. 3/

BREAKING: HISHAM ABU HAWASH WILL BE RELEASED IN FEBRUARY!

He began a hunger strike 141 days ago to protest his detention by Israel without charge or trial, and will continue striking until he sees the signature of release on his documents.

May he recover fully and swiftly 🙏
We are overjoyed that Hisham will return to his family and moved by his courage and perseverance in the face of unjust detention.

His resistance is testimony to Israel's failure to break Palestinians’ will and to suppress their struggle for freedom and justice.
We will continue to fight for the end of administrative detention and the release of all Palestinian political prisoners. #FreeThemAll

Israel has been separated from his daughter since '19 & has been a leader w @ResistenciaNW during tht time. When Israel's case was submitted for prosecutorial discretion, ICE denied his request w/o even reading his file!

The Seattle ICE Field Office MUST revisit Israel's case!! He has been diagnosed w/ pre-diabetes, a condition he didn't have before being in detention & contracted COVID 19. He needs proper treatment.

Six brave Palestinian prisoners are on hunger strike protesting their illegal detention without charge or trial.

Kayed Fasfous, 114 days
Meqdad Qawasmeh, 107 days
Alaa Al Araj, 89 days
Hisham Abu Hawash, 80 days
Ayyad Hraimi, 44 days
Loay Al-Ashqar, 26 days

#FreeThemAll
Many of these prisoners are in critical condition. The Israeli military continues to violently neglect their health and renew their baseless detention orders, as it did with Meqdad Qawasmeh on his 105th day of hunger strike 2 days ago.
These prisoners join many thousands of unjustly detained Palestinians over decades for whom hunger strikes have been the only available form of resistance. Their strike is testimony to Israel’s failure to break Palestinians’ will and suppress their struggle for freedom.
