Send a message of solidarity to Palestinian political prisoners

Prisoners in Gilboa prison meeting with relatives, March, 2006.

Right now, 4,900 Palestinians are being held by Israel as political prisoners, to silence opposition to its occupation and apartheid regime. All Palestinian prisoners held by Israel are political prisoners — imprisoned because of their identity, beliefs or activities in relation to Israel’s occupation.

Israel’s far-right government has recently passed new legislation designed to increase its human rights abuse of Palestinian political prisoners — including reintroducing the death penalty.

Palestinian political prisoners need our solidarity. Our Palestinian partner Addameer provides crucial legal and practical support for Palestinian political prisoners, and has asked if you will write to prisoners with a message of solidarity. It's important for prisoners, and those advocating for their rights, to know that the world has not forgotten them, and for Israel to see its crimes gaining international attention.

All you need to do is add your name, and a custom message if you want to, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Add your name to our letter to Palestinian political prisoners:

"We want you to know that people of conscience all over the world stand with you in your struggle for justice. You are not alone. You have thousands of friends here in the UK who support Palestinian freedom and the plight of Palestinian political prisoners. We see your strength and courage in the face of Israel’s ongoing human rights violations and violence and send you our solidarity.

We know that, as the international community, it is our duty to pressure our governments to hold Israel to account. We will continue to stand with the Palestinian people and demand that our government respect Palestinian rights and the rights of Palestinian political prisoners by ending its complicity with Israel’s apartheid regime."


Please note: We'll send your messages to prisoners both through the mail and through prisoners' meetings with our partner Addameer. In the interests of safety and security, the postal version will only be signed with your initials and personalised messages will be sent anonymously. Messages sent through our partner Addameer will be attributed with your first name only.
All personalised messages will be screened before being sent. Any messages deemed inappopriate will not be sent.

We want to keep you updated on our campaigns and fundraising in the way that you prefer. Please let us know how you wish to be contacted.
