Hi All

Please find attached a request from the Tower Hamlets Jenin Friendship Association




Dear all,

Attached is an update about Hanaa Shalabi from Jenin who has been on hunger strike for 20 days. If you would like to take action for Hanaa, please visit our website where there are several options available for putting pressure on the authorities to release Hanaa. This pressure has already had some effect as last week she was released from solitary confinement. Just yesterday, her sentence was curtailed by two months, highlighting the arbitrary nature of her detention.

If you are on Facebook, please join the Page THJFA have jointly set up with women activists: 'Free Hanaa Shalabi immediately!' (no link as today is a boycott of Facebook in protest at Zuckenberg meeting Shimon Peres to assist Israel's public profile). There is also a protest against Administrative Detention organised by CADFA as part of their women's visit on 20th. Please visit their site for details.

Finally, Hanaa is going through a very challenging time and messages of support can have a really positive effect on prisoners. If you can, write a letter to Hanaa at this address:

Hana al-Shalabi
Hasharon Prison
Even Yehuda
Po Box 7

Best Wishes,
Tower Hamlets Jenin Friendship Association.
