  • A message from Zakaria Zubeidi | The Freedom Theatre
    to hand over a wanted man While I was at the police station the security services National Security came and kidnapped me They put a bag over my head and cuffed my hands behind my back I didn t know where I was except that I was in Jericho Expressing surprise at the way he was arrested Zubeidi added that he had not been handed an arrest warrant nor been given reasons for his arrest Zubeidi said that he was put in cells not suitable for human beings and he was tortured during the investigation period He was treated in ways and methods contrary to international law Zubeidi added that despite being abducted and tortured I cooperated with them He explained that he was arrested on charges of shooting at the house of the late Governor of Jenin Qaddura Musa stressing that these charges are baseless because of the absence of any evidence Zakaria had a good personal and professional relationship with Qaddura Musa Zubeidi added that these were not the only charges leveled against him He was also accused among other things of the murder of Palestinian director Juliano Mer Khamis Other charges were brought against me while I was in prison such as the murder of Colonel Hisham al Rukh Zubaidi questioned the reasons for the mistakes committed by the security services who made charges regarding events that unfolded while Zubeidi was in prison Zubeidi accused the security services of manipulating the law in order to extend the period of detention The first extension of my detention was based on charges of killing Juliano and the last extension was in relation to the murder of Al Rukh The court hearings were legal however extending the detention on charges that have nothing to do with me is not legal Zubeidi says he was subjected to random accusations including being responsible for the assassination of Imad Mughniye the Hezbollah leader who was killed in Syria as well as collaborating with the occupation and helping the Israeli secret service kill people active in the Intifada such as Alaa al Sabbagh in addition to charges of illegally owning millions of dollars The last charges were aiming to tarnish my reputation as a militant Zubeidi defended himself by saying that during the second Intifada the al Aqsa Intifada he had worked against the occupation publicly because resistance is a Palestinian right When told to do so by a political decision I put down my weapons out of commitment to that political decision I moved on to cultural work because we can resist through culture and theatre and by these means I can deliver the message of the Palestinian people who suffer under the yoke of Israeli occupation Zubeidi stated his belief in the fairness of the Palestinian judiciary His message to the judges was that this press conference is constructive criticism to avoid future mistakes and injustices He added that his only weapon during his stay in prison was going on hunger strike

  • The Freedom Bus – a historic Freedom Ride | The Freedom Theatre
    Betlehem the Freedom Bus actors had the opportunity to perform in a beautiful purpose built outdoor theatre directly next to the separation wall As we performed in the shadow of the wall the lights of our show lit up the resistance graffiti It was a truly astonishing setting An elderly man began his story with a joke When people come into your house they usually choose to enter through the front door But in the Second Intifada our visitors the Israelis came through the walls He was referring to the Israeli practice of bombing the walls of neighbouring houses to move through the camp internally His house was entered in this way and occupied by a group of soldiers for seventeen days before the army set off a bomb that exploded through the walls of five adjacent houses Another stop was made in Ramallah where in the unlikely setting of a corporate conference room we heard stories from Gazans who lived through the war on Gaza of December 2008 January 2009 The performance was beamed to the people in Gaza and as the Freedom Bus actors introduced themselves they said they dreamed of one day being able to perform in Gaza without the need of wires and cables A woman from the Gazan group summed up what many were feeling when she said I am happy to see you but unhappy about the borders between us In Al Walajah a village facing impending strangulation by the separation wall the Freedom Bus joined community members in a creative march to protest the attacks on their land and homes The villagers of Walajah have owned the land for generations but only inhabit one side of the valley after they were expelled from the location of their original village in 1948 Soon the
