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.
