• OPEN THE DOORS !

    Israel must end the Gaza blockade, end all killings, and enable Gaza to open to the world, so as to guarantee the possibility of a viable economy, and improve the humanitarian situation.

    The Palestinians must end all attacks against Israel and the Israelis.

    Human beings are not bargaining chips.

    Accordingly : 

    The Israelis, who hold more than six thousand Palestinian prisoners in their jails, must urgently release a significant group of women prisoners, sick persons, the youngest and longest-serving among them, along with those held under administrative detention and other arbitrary procedures – including all the elected members of the Palestinian legislature.*

     

    * Additional information: 1,027 prisoners were released in 2011, including most of the women detained then, and 78 of the 104 among the longest-serving prisoners were released in 2013, leaving the last scheduled group of 26 behind bars.

    Since the attacks known as 'the Facebook Intifada' there has been a surge in the number of prisoners, from around 5,000 to over 6,000. There were, as of January 31, 2016, 46 women (instead of 18 nine months before) and 406  minors detained (instead of 182), as well as 568 administrative detainees (instead of 412), including over a dozen Members of Parliament. 

    Since the summer of 2016, the figures have not been available. At the end of August 2016, there were 646 administrative detainees, and 335 minors detained. Among the latter, around 300 inmates were between 16 and 18. Around 70 between 14 and 16. 2 under the age of 14.

    When this Campaign started in the spring of 2008, the number of prisoners was close to 9,000.  As the situation in blockaded Gaza has only worsened in time, the decision was taken in Brussels, in July 2014, to keep the original wording of the Campaign, as conceived in 2008 after the Gaza-Egypt Border Breach. It became evident in the winter of 2015-2016 that the wording of the second sentence had to be changed, to include all forms of attacks by Palestinians against Israelis. The processing to all the signatories is ongoing. Most of the signatories gave their support between 2008 and 2013.
