The latest news about Ahed Tamimi's detention by Israel is horrific. Israel is refusing to release her on bail pending trial. Not only this, but the court proceedings against her will begin on January 31, the day of her 17th birthday. Rather than celebrating with family and friends, eating cake, and having a party, Ahed will spend her birthday in a military courtroom. She will sleep that night in a prison cell.
Sign the birthday card to Ahed and write a personal message of love and support. We will have the card and your messages delivered to Ahed in prison.
We are sending love and solidarity to you on your 17th birthday.
Most teenage girls mark their 17th year with friends and family, parties and celebrations. But the occupation has snatched this right of passage away from you by arresting you in your own home in the middle of the night and holding you in military detention.
Now you face a military court trial on your special day.
We send love and support to you today and every day. We are inspired by your courage in the face of injustice. As you spend your 17th birthday behind bars, we will carry on your struggle for freedom.
