CALL TO ACTION: JUSTICE FOR YOUSEF IKHLAYL

4 January 2012

When: January 28, 2012

What: International day of solidarity with Yousef Ikhlayl

Background:

On January 28, 2011, Yousef Ikhlayl was murdered by an Israeli settler from Bat Ayn settlement while working in his family’s fields in the Saffa valley. Yousef was a regular participant in Beit Ommar’s non-violent demonstrations against the settlements, as well as Palestine Solidarity Project’s community programs.

One year later, THERE HAVE BEEN NO ARRESTS IN YOUSEF’S CASE. For months, the Israeli Attorney General hasn’t even assigned the case to a lawyer, preventing any further action on the case.

As Palestinian negotiators sit with Israeli war criminals to discuss re-opening peace negotiations–negotiations that will leave Bat Ayn in place (according to previously leaked negotiating positions)–THE POPULAR COMMITTEE OF BEIT OMMAR AND PALESTINE SOLIDARITY PROJECT CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL ACTION IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUSEF AND ALL VICTIMS OF ISRAELI OCCUPATION.

The weekly demonstration in Beit Ommar on January 28th will be honoring Yousef and other Beit Ommar Martyrs. STAND WITH BEIT OMMAR AND THE POPULAR RESISTANCE!

CALL FOR AN END FOR SETTLER AND ISRAELI IMPUNITY!

JUSTICE FOR YOUSEF!
