Update: Mousa Abu Maria Recovering

27 January 2008

Mousa Abu Maria, co-founder of PSP, is home recuperating as of tonight, January 26. It is believed that he was in fact hit by a ricochet bullet, which did not fully penetrate his skull. He has shrapnel from the bullet remaining in his head but should make a full recovery. A piece of the bullet hit him just above his left eye, we do not yet know if his vision has been permanently damaged. Thank you to everyone for your calls and support.

PSP will be collecting donations for the Popular Committee of Beit Ommar, who are planning more demonstrations in the coming weeks in response to the attacks on their village by the Israeli Occupation Forces. Please make a donation via our website:
