Open military courtroom for Ahed's Trial

Ahed_OpenTrial.jpg

After a video of Ahed confronting Israeli soldiers outside her house went viral, she was arrested in the middle of the night. Overnight, she became a hero for young women throughout the world. Israel wants her case to be forgotten so they have closed her trial to the public. No media, no diplomats, no human rights observers. Help us call on the US State Department to demand that Ahed’s trial be opened, and that they send a US official to monitor the trial.


Dear US State Department,

It is horrible that Israel has closed the courtroom for the military trial of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi. They are trying to hide from the international community while they try a child in a military court with an over 99% conviction rate.

Seventeen-year-old Ahed Tamimi is facing up to 10 years in prison. Each year, Israel arrests and prosecutes around 700 Palestinian children in military court. Israel’s abuse of Palestinian children must stop.

We ask you to demand that Israel open the courtroom and that you send a representative of the US government to be present throughout Ahed Tamimi’s trial.

Sincerely,

    This is an outrage and a blatant violation of human rights. We must punish them for such atrociois behavior to deter it in the future.

    What is so threatening about a young woman, that this trial needs to be conducted in secret? Justice requires transparency.

    Israelis gross Human Rights violations against Palestinians cannot and should not be allowed to carry on without repercussions. Our political affiliations should not dictate who deserves basic Human Rights, Right to self determination and Freedoms. This should be applied universally and not seletively.

    Better yet, let an authentic journalist observe the trial (Hedges, Martin, Philger, anyone from Consortium News, etc. A government representative can’t be trusted to tell the truth.


    What has happened in occupied Palestine is horrid and disgraceful. Shame on the US for bolstering this illegal occupation and the oppression of the Palestinian people.
