SFP CAMPAIGN LAUNCH: SFP calls for support for Palestine’s female farmers

SFP calls for support for Palestine’s female farmers

Following on from our successful olive tree and 10685128_10205671740607009_1515945103_nthyme planting campaigns, today the SFP Steering Committee is launching a campaign to specifically work with and support female Palestinian farmers. We are asking our supporters for their kind donations to help us achieve our goal of supporting female farmers to remain steadfast on the land and support their economic development in the face of a the brutal Israeli Occupation.11128946_10205671740647010_1924450666_n

The Palestinian herb thyme is a major source of income for Palestinian women, who grow the herb used in the famous Palestinian tea, selling it at markets across Palestine. SFP has already been working with women-led groups in Biddiya, Saffa, Beit Furik and Ramallah, planting thyme, olive and lemon trees and taking direct action against the Occupation. We want to expand that support to more villages and land, helping to support female cooperatives across Palestine.

Palestinian women have been at the forefront of the resistance to the illegal Occupation of their lands. All-female cooperatives that exist across Palestine have historically enhanced the spirit of cooperation among women, working together to protect all Palestine’s lands, which are permanently exposed to attacks by settlers and colonial Armies.

SFP would like to thank everyone that has supported us to date and particularly our regularly planting campaigns. We would be very grateful if you would consider donating again so we may now assist Palestinian female farmers.

UPDATE: SFP Prisoners update

UPDATE ON SFP MEMBERS INTERNED BY APARTHIED ISRAEL

 Ghassan Najjar

Ghassan_Najjar.jpgGhassan last appeared before Salem Military Court on Sunday 19 April 2015. As with every previous appearance the Military Judge again granted the Prosecutor more time and adjourned the Court hearing until 28 May 2015. By this time Ghassan will have been held for 9 months without trial or charge.

Ghassan was kidnapped from his home in Burin village, just south of Nablus city, on 27 August 2014. The previous day Israeli soldiers had threatened Ghassan after he attempted to prevent them invading and attacking young children in their lessons at Burin High School. A video of the attack and threats to Ghassan can be seen below.

Soldiers invaded Ghassan’s home in the middle of the night, vandalising Ghassan’s home, which he shares with his elderly parents and taking Ghassan away. Ghassan was held in solitary confinement with limited access to legal advice for one month in the notorious Petah Tikva interrogation facility before being transferred to Meggido prison, inside 1948 territories.

Since his internment Ghassan has only been able to see his baby son through a glass petition and his parents are reliant on Israeli security permission to enter ’48 to visit him in prison.

SFP understands that Israeli Apartheid Prosecutors are talking of interning Ghassan for 3 years once he finally is charged. Their claims against him reolve around resistance, all legal under international law. By the time he is released his son will have started school.

Ayman Gharib

Ayman_Gharib.jpgAyman last Court appearance was postponed at the last minute. He is due to appear before a Military Court on 7 May 2015. By this time Ayman will have been interned without trial or charge for 6 months.

Despite being granted permission to visit Ayman, his wife and mother were denied access to see Ayman at the last minute, adding to their torture and distress.

Ayman was kidnapped from his home in Tamon village on 18 December 2014. He had been continually harassed by Israeli soldiers prior to his kidnapping, with threats made against him.

Samer Maklouf

Arrest_in_Qaryut_of_Samer_Maklouf_and_Mohammed_Qaed.jpgSamer Maklouf was attacked and knocked unconscious by Israeli soldiers in Qaryut village while planting olive trees on 15 March 2015. He was then kidnapped and transferred to Meggido prison with Mohammed Qaed. Despite agreement by Ofer Military Court for the release of Mohammed and Samer on 4000NIS fines, this was later rescinded in Samer’s case.

Samer is accused of throwing stones at the Occupation soldiers and following an ‘appeal’ by Prosecutors, the initial agreement to his release was reneged. Samer is due back in Military Court shortly.

SFP is closely in contact with lawyers and providing support to Ghassan, Ayman and Samer’s families. We would like to thank all those that have shown their support around the world for Samer, Ghassan and Ayman and we will continue to keep you updated on their situation and wellbeing. We pass all messages to their families who get great comfort from your support and well wishes.

 

20/04/15: SFP march on Huwwara checkpoint for Palestinian prisoners

On Monday 20 April SFP activists with the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committee’s, accompanied by members of the International Womens Peace Services (IWPS), marched on Huwwara checkpoint for Palestinian prisoners. The Israeli Army opened fire on the activists, firing tear gas, sound bombs and threatening participants with arrest, including Palestinian media.

Activists marched calling for the release of all Palestinian prisoners, including SFP activists Ghassan Najjar, Ayman Gharib and Samer Maklouf interned by Apartheid Israel. Ghassan has been interned for 8 months. He appeared before an Israeli Military Court on Sunday 19 April, where the ‘Prosecution’ were again granted more time, and his next Court appearance is due to be 28 May 2015. By this time he will have spent 9 months interned without trial or charge.

Activists chose Huwwara Military checkpoint, just south of Nablus city, as it is home to Huwwara Military camp, where many Palestinians who have been kidnapped from their homes by Israeli forces are first taken and held without access to lawyers, family or any medical or independent monitors.

SFP calls on the release of all Palestinian prisoners and will continue to work until they are all brought home. We recently have been planting olive trees for prisoners and their families, both as a symbol of our respect for their sacrifice to the cause of freedom, but also to provide some future income to their families. We would like to thank all those that have already donated and ask for your continual support, so we may assist more families and particularly womens cooperatives.

18/04/15: SFP plant trees in Burin to honour its prisoners

On Saturday 18 April activists from SFP planted olive trees for the 17 prisoners of Burin village, including SFP Committee member Ghassan Najjar. Joined by the prisoners families SFP activists planted symbolic olive trees as a token of their steadfastness on the land and sacrifice for the cause of freedom. SFP organized the action with the villages cultural centre, the Bilal Najjar Centre, and were joined by its volunteers.

The trees were planted on the land of each prisoner and pictures of the prisoners were hung on the tree in their honour. Activists then joined the families in their homes to hear their stories and suffering present them with a token of SFP’s respect for the sacrifice they had made to Palestine’s freedom.

Ghassan Najjar, SFP Committee member, has been interned since 27 August 2014, after defending the local school from attack by marauding Israeli soldiers. Ghassan’s mother and father were visibly distressed at the absence of their youngest son and SFP continues to provide Ghassan’s family with solidarity and support as we work towards the release of all Palestinian Prisoners.

While visiting Zakaria’s home his mother told the heart wrenching story so many Palestinian families endure, of standing at barriers and checkpoints at 5am in the hope of being able to visit her son for just 45 minutes behind a glass partition. In recent months all the requests the family have made for visits has been refused by the Israeli authorities on the pretext of ‘security’, a common torture tactic of the Occupation. When they are able to visit his family, including female members, are subjected to humiliating strip searches.

SFP also visited the family of Ibraheem Omran, who is sentenced to 11 life sentences plus 90 years. His father told activists of his sons high morale and pride at the duty, despite the sacrifice he had had as a result, for the Palestinian cause. Activists expressed their thanks and respect for Ibraheem’s bravery and sacrifice.

Nasif Asous and Rafat Asous’s father had suffered a stroke since his two sons had been imprisoned and he told SFP how for more than a year the Occupation had denied his request to visit them.

At the end of the action SFP also honored the memory of international activists Vittorio Arrigoni, who was murdered in Gaza.

SFP sincerely thanks all those that have already contributed to our campaign to raise funds for prisoners, their families and the planting of saplings. We kindly request any further donations you could make and encourage you to share our campaign with your friends and colleagues. Please click here for details of how to donate.

17/04/15: SFP activists march on Ofer Apartheid prison

On the occassion of Palestinian Prisoners Day, SFP activists joined their fellow Palestinians in marching on Ofer detention facility calling for the release of all Palestinian prisoner. Israeli soldiers opened fire on the demonstrators with many suffering suffocation from tear gas inhalation and Mohammed Nadir being shot in the leg.

SFP joined the call for the release of all Palestinian prisoners and freedom for Palestine, particularly SFP activists currently interned by Apartheid Israel: Ghassan Najjar; Ayman Ghraib; and Samer Maklouf. Ofer detention facility is located near Ramallah in the centre of the occupied West Bank area of Palestine. Palestinians, including children are held in the facility, and tortured, as well as it housing one of the several kangeroo Military Courts, ‘prosecuting’ Palestinians.

There are currently around 6,500 prisoners languishing in Israeli prisons, with around 480 serving multiple life sentences. The number of children detained is at an unprecdented high and those held under administrative detention orders. SFP joined the call for the end of internment and ultimately the Occupation, bringing all the prisoners home and freedom. We repeat our call for actions around the world in support of Palestinian prisoners, and the further targeting through boycott, divest and sanctions (BDS), of those Government’s, institutions, companies and individuals that support and profit from the Occupation of Palestine.

In addition, SFP will be planting olive trees with prisoner families over the coming weeks. The aim of this is to not only reclaim the land but help families and ex-prisoners have a livelihood to help them rebuild their lives stolen from them by Apartheid Israel. We would be very grateful for your donations to buy as many crops as possible. Please click here to find out how to donate.

17/04/15: SFP plant olive trees for prisoners in Burqa

On Friday 17 April SFP planted olive trees in and Massoudia area of Burqa village on behalf of Palestinian prisoners. Joined by villagers and prisoners families activists prayed on the land and then planted saplings in honour of their fellow citizens interned by Apartheid Israel.

Massoudia is an area of outstanding natural beauty and under constant settler and Army attack. Last year the Israeli Army demolition public toilets the local Council of Burqa had erected for visitors to the park. The Army declared areas of the park prohibited from construction limiting the ability of the Council to refurbish the area for visitors. At the same time groups of illegal settlers regularly invade the area attempting to take it over and steal the land.

On the occasion of Palestinian prisoners day SFP reaffirmed their support to all prisoners, their families and the struggle for freedom. By continuing to plant trees and reclaim the land SFP aims to support villages and families remain steadfast in the face of the Occupation. We intend to plant more trees in villages for prisoners and would welcome your continued support and donations. To find out how to donate please click here.

16/04/15: Nablus marches for Palestinian prisoner

On Thursday 16 April SFP joined Palestinian political parties, associations and residents in a march of solidarity for Palestinian political prisoners interned by Apartheid Israel. The march comes a day before the annual solidarity day for Palestinians prisoners, with actions taking place across Palestine and the world.

Demonstrators marched to Nablus’s central square, Martyrs Square, with families of prisoners and ex-prisoners to raise awareness and call for an end of internment and freedom for all prisoners. SFP currently has several members in prison.

There are currently around 6,500 prisoners languishing in Israeli prisons, with around 480 serving multiple life sentences. The number of children detained is at an unprecdented high and those held under administrative detention orders. SFP joined the call for the end of internment and ultimately the Occupation, bringing all the prisoners home and freedom.

15/04/15: Israeli forces conduct mass kidnapping of Palestinians from Nablus

In the early hours of Wednesday morning the Israeli Army invaded the city of Nablus and conducted mass kidnapping of Palestinians. 31 Palestinians were kidnapped from their homes as Israeli soldiers marauded across the city vandalising and stealing property and money.

More than 50 Israeli Military jeeps invaded the city at around 2am, swarming through the Old City, Balata refugee camp to the east and neighbourhoods around the city. The majority of those kidnapped were from the Palestinians party Hamas, with some of those kidnapped being veteren ex-detainees, already having had many years of their life stolen by Apartheid Israel’s internment policies.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club named those kidnapped as: Said Dweikat, Nidal Abu Rmeileh, Wajih Abu Eida, Abdullah al-Aker, Hussam al-Bustami, journalist Amin Abu Wardeh, Omar Abd al-Wahhab, Amjad Abu Ghosh, Muhammad Sawalmeh, Zahi Abu Eida, Samih Eleiwi, Youssef Marshud, Abu Hamzeh al-Jurf, Ziad Mreish, Amjad Zamel, Sami al-Assi, Anan Futouh, Saad Khudrieh, Mona Abu Bakr al-Sayeh, Ahmad Sawalha, Omar Abd al-Wahhab, Omar Issa Atallah, Abu Hamzeh al-Jurf, Ghassan Abu al-Baraa, Fares and Ghanem Sawalmeh, Sheikh Bassem Abu Juneid and Jasser Abu Hamada. Those kidnapped also included one woman, Mona Abu Bakr Al-Sayeh.

SFP activists visited some of the homes of those invaded by Israeli soldiers, witnessing the wanton destruction caused and hearing directly from the families the ordeal they had to endure, awoken from their beds and threatened.

These mass arrests come 2 days before the annual marking of Prisoners Day in Palestine. It is estimated that 40% of men in Palestine have been interned by the Occupation. The number of Palestinians prisoners is at an unprecedented high, and just last week another prisoner was killed at the hand of the Israeli prison authorities and their medical neglect. SFP will continue to support prisoners and their familes and calls for action across the world against Apartheid Israel and those individuals and companies that profit from the Occupation and internment of Palestinians. We call for actions on Friday 17 April to coincide with Palestinian Prisoners day to raise the issue worldwide.

13/04/15: SFP activists pay their respects at the marytr Muhammad Jasser Karakra funeral

On Monday 13 April activists from SFP joined the village of Sinjil in burying the martyr Muhammad Jasser Karakra. Muhammad was murdered by Israeli soldiers after allegedly stabbing Occupation soldiers on 8 April.

27 year old Muhammad’s funeral drew a large turnout of villagers and mourners, with calls from demonstrators to end the Israeli occupation of their land and the crimes committed against the Palestinian people. As demonstrators marched Israeli soldiers station provocatively nearby fired live ammunition at the mourners wounding over 20, who shut down the main street in protest.

According to a report published by United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) 2014 was the bloodiest year for Palestinians since 1967, with Apartheid Israel murdering with impunity. Just shortly after Muhammad’s extra judicial killing at the hands of the Occupation, Jafar Awad, interned by Apartheid Israel died after medical neglect at the hands of Apartheid Israel’s prison service. During his funeral, held the same day, his cousin, 27 year old Ziyad Awad, was shot dead by Israeli soldiers while burying his cousin.

SFP calls for the increase in action by people around the world against Apartheid Israel and all those that profit from the Occupation. SFP encourages people to take direct action, particularly boycott, divestment and sanctions activities (BDS). For more details on how you can get involved please click here.
