  • Members of EU Parliament support Nabil | The Freedom Theatre
    Centre and Theatre School working since 2006 at Jenin Refugee Camp in West Bank who has been arrested at his home at early hours of 6th June by Israeli armed forces with their face covered and no explanation given Since then there is no clear information on where he has been carried to the conditions of his detention his physical and mental health status and what is more on the reasons for his detention According to some information by the Israeli authorities Mr Nabil Al Raee is detained in a prison in the north of Israel and cannot be contacted not even by his lawyer As you probably know Freedom Theatre is an institution dedicated to work with children and young people aiming to help a population living under very tough conditions surrounded by a 3 meter high concrete wall The Freedom Theatre group s work has been shadowed by permanent threats by the Israeli authorities After the assassination of its founder Juliano Mer Khamis late 4th of April 2011 detentions of its members became a routine for the group We consider that it is a duty of the international community and much more of the European Union to demand from the leaders of the State of Israel to respect international law and cease maintaining the repressive and brutal wave of detentions contrary to the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention Furthermore the EU should support the cultural work done that helps bring about a climate of understanding Given the urgency of the situation we would appreciate your response to safeguard and protect the life of Nabil Al Raee Thank you for keeping us informed of any initiatives that you plan to take Kind regards Kyriacos TRIANTAPHYLLIDES Patrick LE HYARIC Marisa MATIAS Alda SOUSA Willy MEYER Helmut SCHOLZ Søren Bo

  • Solidarity with Al Walajahتضامن مع آل الولجة | The Freedom Theatre
    called security barrier is not something to be anticipated Already in complete and flagrant disregard of international law the people of Al Walajah have had their land taken and their homes demolished mere fodder for this immoral construction an apartheid partition whose real purpose is evident in its route a track that snakes deep into Palestinian territory annexing land and water resources far beyond the Green Line Like several villages in the West Bank Al Walajah holds weekly demonstrations in defiance against the Wall and the larger colonialist framework that generates such atrocities On April 13th however the village gathered for something different a protest on a mountaintop that has been unilaterally declared as an Israeli National Park This piece of land contains olive trees that have been harvested for generations by the people of Al Walajah The land is also connected to the home of Omar Hajajlah and his family Their house situated along the planned course of the Wall was scheduled for demolition However sustained pressure managed to avert this fate The Wall engineers responded by designing a new plan An electrified 4 meter high barrier will now encircle the house effectively imprisoning the Hajajlah family Their only access to the world will be via a 5 000 000 NIS tunnel that connects their home to the larger prison to be of Al Walajah The protest on April 13th was unique The Freedom Theatre and its Freedom Bus crew had been invited to use Playback Theatre an interactive theatre approach where audience members share autobiographical accounts and watch as a team of actors instantly transforms these stories into improvised theatre pieces Accompanying the Freedom Bus crew was Dar Qandeel a group of musicians from Tulkarem and the rapper Talha Alali Wise Wolf A crowd of over 200 Palestinians and Internationals gathered on this mountain to stand in solidarity with the people of Al Walajah and to hear their stories Luisa Morgantini former Vice President of the European Union was present along with a delegation of Italians Local community members artists scholars teachers activists journalists travelers children youth and families also attended The mood was one of joy and celebration The 10 year old son of Omar was the first to speak to the crowd As he looked out over the sea of faces he stated that he felt a sense of belonging Later Omar himself spoke At this moment I feel free from the occupation he said Today I have found through art and culture another way to resist Potent words indeed considering that a squadron of Israeli soldiers and police had been deployed to monitor the event and were watching from close by heavily armed with their usual array of crowd control instruments M16 s rubber bullets live ammunition sound bombs gas canisters batons and more A vivid illustration of a monolithic body intent upon the destruction not only of homes but also of unarmed popular struggle and civil resistance Half an hour into the event apparently
