In October, a month of international solidarity was held for the long-time political prisoner Georges Ibrahim Abdallah. In order to express the demand for his release, many different actions were carried out, especially in France, but also internationally. The highlight was a very successful demonstration on October 24th in France, Lannemezan, where Georges Ibrahim Abdallah is in prison.
Georges Ibrahim Abdallah was arrested on October 24, in 1984 and has been in prison for 37 years. He is the longest imprisoned political prisoner in Europe. He would have served his minimal sentence as early as 1999, but since then, particularly at the urging of U.S. imperialism, it has been extended again and again. His crime was to struggle for Palestine's freedom and right to national self-determination! His crime is still to demanding on that, organizing actions in prison and still not to be broken!
The national oppression of Palestine by Israel, the obedient lackey of U.S. imperialism, is currently increasing and showing ever more extensive dimensions. Under the pretext of the Covid-19 epidemic, even sharper and more aggressive measures are being imposed to oppress the Palestinians, but also the Israeli people. The political crisis in Israel is increasingly deepening, driving U.S. imperialism and its lackey Israel to make a further push of aggression against the Palestinian popular masses!
All the more weight is given to the powerful actions carried out on the anniversary of the arrest of Georges Ibrahim Abdallah!
Against the oppression of Palestine by US imperialism and its lackey Israel!
Down with Zionism and imperialism!
Long live International Solidarity!
Freedom for Georges Ibrahim Abdallah!
Freedom for all political prisoners!
In the following we document some of the actions that were carried out, which express a strong sign of international solidarity with the justified struggle of Palestine!
