Urgent Call for Support - Anarchists Against the Wall

Asa | 28.07.2007 11:08 | Anti-militarism | Anti-racism | Palestine | World

The following call is from the Anarchists Against the Wall email list.

The Israeli anarchists are well known and respected by all Palestinian non-violence leaders. They are the only Israeli group that consistently and regularly turns up at Palestinian demonstrations and one of (very) few anti-Zionist groups in Israel today.

As such, the state is of course persecuting them and they are regularly detained, questioned or even sent to jail. They have a LOT of legal costs. Gaby Lasky is a tireless and committed human rights lawyer who has represented many Palestinian, Israeli and international anti-occupation activists.

Please support them!

Dear friend,

The mounting legal cost of the joint Palestinian-Israeli struggle against the occupation is forcing us to send this urgent appeal for funds. We are asking for your support to continue the work of the Israeli group Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW).

For the past four years, the group has supported the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation and specifically against Israel's segregation wall. Week after week, AATW joins the Palestinian popular resistance against the wall, in diverse areas of the West Bank, including the villages of Bil'in west of Ramallah, al-Ma'asara, and Ertas, south of Bethlehem, and Beit Ummar, north of Hebron.

Activists have often been arrested and indicted for their participation in the struggle. Fortunately, the group is represented by a dedicated lawyer, Adv. Gaby Lasky. Adv. Lasky has tirelessly worked to defend activists arrested at demonstrations or direct actions in the West Bank and in Israel. Though the legal defense she provides AATW is almost a full-time job, she has agreed to be paid only a token fee. However, the group has not managed to cover even this sum, and now owes approximately $40,000 in legal expenses for over 60 indictments. In addition to this enormous legal debt, AATW activists are forced to spend large sums on transportation and phone bills.

Please make a donation that will enable us to continue this struggle.

Thank you for your solidarity.
