NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH: Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa'adat

The Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa'adat is pleased to announce the launch of our NEW website!

Visit our new web site and share with your friends and comrades! Write to us at and share your actions, news, updates and solidarity efforts to free Ahmad Sa'adat and Palestinian political prisoners. Who is Ahmad Sa'adat? Ahmad Sa'adat is the General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council. One of nearly 5,000 Palestinian political prisoners, he has been sentenced to thirty years in Israeli prisons for a range of "security-related" political offenses. These charges include membership in a prohibited organization (the PFLP, of which Sa'adat is General Secretary), holding a post in a prohibited organization, and incitement, for a speech Sa'adat made following the Israeli assassination of his predecessor, Abu Ali Mustafa, in August 2001. Sa'adat is a prisoner of conscience, targeted for imprisonment because of his political activity and in his capacity as a Palestinian leader. The systematic assassination, imprisonment and detention of Palestinian political leaders has long been a policy of the Israeli state, as reflected in the imprisonment of Sa'adat and over a dozen other members of the Palestinian Legislative Council, including Marwan Barghouthi, as well as the nearly 5,000 Palestinian political prisoners, targeted for their involvement in and commitment to the struggle for the liberation of their land and people. This is a campaign of human rights activists and concerned people from around the world, coming together to address the travesty of justice taking place, and calling for justice and freedom for Ahmad Sa'adat and all Palestinian political prisoners. We are asking you now to join us in building international solidarity for the freedom of Ahmad Sa'adat and his fellow Palestinian prisoners. Ahmad Sa'adat is a prisoner of conscience, subject to the illegitimate military courts of an illegal military occupation. Hundreds of organizations and activists around the world have signed on to the campaign's calls for freedom for Ahmad Sa'adat and his fellow Palestinian prisoners here.
