volantino presidio prigionieri politici palestinesi 24 ottobre 2013On October 24, 2013, Palestina Rossa and the Palestine Solidarity Network – Milan held a sit-in in Piazza Oberdan (Oberdan Square) in Milan.

Approximately 100 people participated in the sit-in, in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners and as part of the Week of Action to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners. For almost two hours the whole square watched images of the Israeli repression towards the Palestinian people, images of Palestinian kids that had been arrested, abused and killed.

Speakers denounced occupation policies in occupied Palestine, including the harsh conditions in the occupation prisons. Participants carried Palestinian flags and flags of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and decided to repeat this event in other public squares and cities.

The protest called: “Let’s support the resistance against any negotiations with the Occupier. Let’s denounce the occupation of the Palestinian land, the vile cooperation of all those fascist Arab countries with Israel, and any negotiations with Israel!”

The next event will be held on Saturday in Turin, to organize for the 30th November demonstration in solidarity with the Palestinian resistance.
