Free Ahed Tamimi & all child prisoners

US Embassy, London. Sat 13 Jan 2018



 People slowly gather for the protest organised by Zoe Zeero at short notice and with relatively little publicity

 Dolls and a bear for the protest - with a photograph of one of the jailed children, Abdul Khalik

 Nana Hourihah's grandmother left Palestine around the time the state of Israel was formed. A few years ago she

 found out more about her family back in Palestine and went to meet them and stay with them in Nabi Saleh. Her cousin is Bassem Tamimi, who has
     
 been imprisoned several times by the Israelis for protesting about the occupation of his lands. His daughter is Ahed Tamimi.

 

 

 'Justice Now!' Make it right for Palestine'

 The protesters shout for the release of Ahed and the other roughly 300 child prisoners

 Children arrested for minor offences - often committed by others - can get sentenced to 20 years in the military

 courts which have a conviction rate of over 99% and are more a formality than any proper trial.

 Palestinians in the occupied territories are under military law - while only Israel's civil law applies to the illegal settlers

 and the Israeli authorities largely turn a blind eye to their crimes against Palestinians.

 'Israel Stop Jailing Kids'

 Nana Hourriyah decide to make a speech to camera with the lone Zionist counter-protester in the background

 who shouted a few comments, accusing the protesters of lying and of being supporters of Hamas (which most were not)

 

 Nana Hourriyah points at the poster of her cousin's daughter, Ahed Tamimi

 still held in an Israeli jail

 

 Nana Hourriyah introduces Zoe Zeero who organised the protest and who spoke about the situaiton in Palestine

 Robert Inlakesh who recently spent three months staying in Palestine with people, including a young boy who

 has been arrested, and was deported for taking part in peaceful protests.

 

 Some of the protesters went to shout at the lone Zionist, telling him he was speading lies and had no idea of

 what was actually happening to the Palestinians in the occupied territories.
