Courageous Voices, Fragile Freedoms

The report examines Israelís increasing use of arrest and detention of Palestinian human rights activists taking part in protests and other peaceful acts of resistance against the illegal Annexation Wall and settlements in the West Bank. Although the popular resistance that arose in response to the continuing construction of the Annexation Wall has been facing acts of repression and violence from Israeli forces since regular demonstrations and international advocacy initiatives gained momentum in 2005, the report shows that beginning in 2009 there was a shift in tactics by the Israeli forces that should be viewed in the context of increasing recognition of the legitimacy of the actions by the Palestinian human rights activists.

Update on the continued military detention of the Palestinian...

London and Ramallah 26 August 2014 - Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights (LPHR) and Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association (Addameer) remain extremely concerned by the continued military detention since 29 April 2014 of the Palestinian human rights defender, Murad Shtaiwi, under Israel's repressive protest law. In our first joint public statement on Murad Shtaiwi's case, dated 3 July 2014, we outlined that this prominent Palestinian human rights defender was to stand trial on Sunday 6 July 2014 at Salem Military Court on three charges: participating in and organising unauthorised demonstrations (Israel's Military Order No. 101); causing a public disturbance; and throwing stones at Israeli military authorities. We can reveal in this update that the court in Murad Shtaiwi's trial has only sat for three days in total since it began on Sunday 6 July 2014 (Sunday 6 July 2014, Wednesday 9 July 2014 and Monday 14 July 2014). On the third day of the trial hearing on Monday 14 July 2014, the trial was adjourned for six weeks until Wednesday 27 August 2014 without a reason provided by the court. Murad Shtaiwi was again refused bail so he has continued to be detained in remand.
