The WFTU International Campaign for the release of Palestinian prisoners, especially children, from Israeli prisons, that kicked off in January 1st, 2021, is an important internationalist campaign for the release of more than 155 children who are currently detained in the occupation prisons. Also we demand the release of 4.500 Palestinian political prisoners, among whom women, elderly, ill and disabled persons. Their rights are being violated by the Israeli state, there is no protection of their health with the adequate health care and no protection measures or vaccination against the Coronavirus during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
On January 6, the WFTU addressed a memorandum to the International Committee of the Red Cross in Palestine, for the Palestinian prisoners, especially children, demanding their immediate release and protection of their rights, and solidarity events took place in three cities of Palestine and Lebanon in front of the Red Cross Offices. We call upon all militant trade unions, members and friends of the WFTU all over the world, to organize protests in the month of January 2021, in front of the Red Cross Offices in your country, to deliver memorandums to the Red Cross, supporting the Campaign and take photos of your protests and then send your photos to the WFTU Central Offices.
Let’s join our efforts and voices, to defend the Palestinian children’s freedom and rights, to defend the interests of the Palestinian People, of workers of all countries, against every injustice and criminal action against workers and their families.
No one alone in the struggles!
