Mousa Abu Maria Released From Prison

15 June 2009

After 1 year, 2 months, and 3 days without charge, trial, or evidence, Mousa Abu Maria, co-founder of the Palestine Solidarity Project, was released last night from Ofer prison. He was welcomed home by family and friends and a nice array of fireworks. PSP is very excited for the return of one of its lead organizers. Mousa reports being held for periods of time in isolation by the Israeli security services when he refused to serve as a spy for the Israeli government, but is otherwise in good health.

PSP and Mousa would like to express our deepest thanks to the hundreds of people who wrote letters of support, donated money to his legal fund, and kept updated about his incarceration, and to the thousands of people who watched the video of Mousa, read articles written about him in three different countries, and supported the work that he did and will continue to do.
