"Stop harassment of Abnaa el-Balad" signatures

We have received signatures to the petition against the harassment of Abnaa elBalad from four Members of Parliament in Pakistan, and also from Mexico and the USA.

We have started receiving signatures in protest at the arrest of the leaders of the Abnaa elBalad movement in Israel. Please continue to send letters to the Prime Minister’s office in Israel, and send us a copy so that we can publish the names of the signatories. (February 11, 2004)

From the USA:

I am writing you concerning the treatment of the group Abnaa elBalad. Your illegal breaking of their offices and harassment and arrest of their members is just part and parcel of the your country's state sponsored terrorism against the Palestinian people. On both counts it must stop!!! Release their members and stop the persecution of the group. Also at this time I would like to speak out against your government’s attacks on the living standards and wages of Arab and Jewish workers that has been going on for some time. As a trade unionist and a supporter of workers rights I demand you stop this war against the working classes.

Subject: Release Muhammad Kana'ane, Husam Kana'ane, Sahar 'Abdu

I must demand that you release the Kana'anes and 'Abdu at once. Unless Arabs can freely express their views like anyone else, Middle East peace is an impossibility.
