Support Palestinian human rights defenders Issa and Farid
Palestinians living in the Occupied Palestinian Territories cannot get to work or school, or see their friends and family without feeling the disruptive effect of Israel’s military rule. It even restricts their ability to farm their land, attend a protest, or access essential services such as electricity and clean water.
People’s entire lives are effectively held hostage by Israel.
Issa Amro and Farid al-Atrash have been peacefully standing against the force of Israel’s military rule, demanding the end to Israel’s settlements in the city of Hebron and other places in the occupied West Bank. But because they have stood up to Israel, they are being punished and are facing criminal charges.
Palestinians need to be able to stand up for their rights - and the world needs to know what is happening to them. None of this can happen without activists like Issa and Farid.
We need to show Israel that we stand with peaceful protesters so that they stop prosecuting Issa and Farid and allow them to continue their important work.
Sign the petition and call on Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government to drop all charges against Issa Amro and Farid al-Atrash immediately
Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip have suffered 50 years of systematic human rights violations under Israel’s occupation. If governments are allowed to stop people from protesting when their rights are violated, the world won't see what’s truly happening.
