Join the rally outside the Russian Compound, Jerusalem on 4 January 2010 at 9 am!
Monday January 4 is date of Jamal’s court hearing. The gathering will be outside the court to remind Israeli authorities that we will not sit silently while they attempt to use trumped up charges and a discriminatory legal system to provide a cover for ……the blatant repression of those who are speaking out against the Wall. We must remind them that the arrests of Jamal Juma’, Mohammed Othman, Abdallah Abu Rahmeh and all the others, will galvanize, not paralyze, the struggle against the Wall. The hearing on the January 4 is Jamal’s third hearing. He has been held without access to his lawyer for over 10 days, and on his court date the lawyer was ordered out of the courtroom when Jamal came before the judge. Observers from European Consulates and the Habitat International Coalition were barred from entering the court. Jamal’s file remains “secret” and under no known charges.
