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,

    If they are so convinced the allegations are authentic why hide her trial? Obviously they know this “court” is a crock. NO MORE OF MY TAX $$$ NEED TO GO TO THIS COUNTRY!!

    The Trial of Ahed Tamimi needs to be open to the public since the Military Court is not to be trusted.
