The campaign highlights the work and trials of Milagro Sala (Argentina), Sudha Bahrdwaj (India), Gültan Kışanak (Turkey), Lore-Elisabeth Blumenthal (US) and Khalida Jarrar and Khitam Saafin (Palestine) and demands their immediate release
Jarrar will serve a prison term of eight months as she has already spent most of her two year sentence in detention since October 2019
In today’s episode we take a look at the preliminary results of El Salvador’s elections, the sentencing of Palestinian politician Khalida Jarrar by an Israeli military court, protests in Bangladesh following the custodial death of Mushtaq Ahmed, and cuts to aid for Yemen by the UK government.
Saafin was sent to administrative detention by an Israeli military commander just days after her arrest during which several other activists and leftist figures were also abducted and detained
Organizations have called for the swift and unconditional release of all the Palestinian leaders and activists arrested in the late night raids on Monday, while also demanding freedom for all Palestinian political prisoners and administrative detainees
Jarrar, a prominent lawmaker from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was last arrested in July 2017, and held in administrative detention without charge or trial, before being released this February
