Demo Wed. for Occupation prisoners Jonathan Pollak and the Issawiya Five

This Wednesday, 15.1.2010, a hearing will be held regarding Jonathan Pollak. We will come at 10am to the Jerusalem Magistrates’ Court to demonstrate our full solidarity with those resisting the occupation, against cooperation with Apartheid, and against Israeli colonialism.

Five Palestinian youths, residents of Issawiya, are also currently in detention after violating in protest the administrative house arrest imposed on them and refusing to accept the release conditions they were offered. Jonathan Pollak has been in detention for over a week for refusing to accept the release conditions he was offered.

In the shrinking space for resistance to the occupation, the refusal to recognize the authority of the courts is an important political action, deserving broad support. This action rejects the legitimacy of Israel’s control, and seeks to subvert the separation mechanisms of a regime that presents itself as democratic, yet in practice is a democracy for Jewish Israelis only, and a military dictatorship for Palestinians.
