15 January: Events in Italy demand freedom for Ahmad Sa’adat and Palestinian Prisoners


Fronte Palestina is organizing events throughout Italy demanding freedom for Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners, as well as an end to Palestinian Authority security cooperation with Israel, on 15 January.

15 January 2015 marks the 13th anniversary of the arrest of Sa’adat, general secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Palestinian national leader, by Palestinian Authority security forces. He was held for over four years in a Palestinian Authority prison under US and British guard before the prison was attacked by Israeli occupation forces; Sa’adat today is imprisoned for a thirty-year sentence in an Israeli prison.
