  • Zakaria Zubeidi Released After International Campaign | The Freedom Theatre
    in return for Zubeidi s ending of armed resistance This meant that Zubeidi was a potential target for the Israeli army Consequently Zubeidi had no choice but to relinquish his freedom of movement by confining himself to the PA headquarters in Jenin An international campaign was launched demanding that Israel either reinstate Zubeidi s amnesty or put forth any accusations they had against him The campaign was endorsed by among others renowned human rights activist Bianca Jagger Statements by PA officials testify to thousands of people around the world joining the campaign and contacted persons responsible for Zubeidi s confinement and revoking of the amnesty After spending twelve days in confinement Zubeidi could return to his family on the 10th of January He was informed that his amnesty had been reinstated however it is an amnesty with restrictions Zubeidi can only move within the area of Jenin It is also obvious from recent events that the Israeli authorities reserve the right to revoke Zubeidi s amnesty at any time and thus put his life at risk I want to thank all the people who helped me during this difficult time I did nothing wrong or broke the terms of the amnesty agreement I still don t know why they revoked it After the twelve days in prison they released me but not into a full amnesty and I m still afraid that it may be revoked again I am awaiting a full amnesty to allow me to move freely I believe in the cultural struggle and I believe in the work of The Freedom Theatre This is the way the Palestinian people can achieve their freedom says Zakaria Zubeidi The phone calls from concerned friends all over the world had a big impact The Freedom Theatre aims to continue this

  • Israel Revokes Zakaria Zubeidi’s Amnesty | The Freedom Theatre
    Zubeidi s ending of armed resistance Zubeidi managed to escape numerous Israeli attempts to assassinate him during the Intifada The amnesty agreement allowed him to remain safe inside the Palestinian Authority district of Jenin where the Israeli military would not seek to arrest or assassinate him From captivity Zubeidi said yesterday I can stay under interrogation for a year if that s what it takes but I just want to know that after that I will have my freedom After having been the leader of the armed resistance during the second Intifada Zubeidi is since 2006 committed to cultural non violent resistance through theatre He founded The Freedom Theatre together with Juliano Mer Khamis who was assassinated earlier this year by unknown assailants The Freedom Theatre is a cultural venue in Jenin Refugee Camp which uses the arts as a form of resistance against oppression Zubeidi has become one of the main advocates for non violent resistance through the arts As Zubeidi states We used armed resistance to represent our case in the Intifada and then we decided to follow the PA s amnesty program and give up armed resistance so then I continued my struggle against occupation through cultural resistance and The Freedom Theatre is one of the institutions that have my full support No reason has been given for the sudden withdrawal of Zubeidi s amnesty The Freedom Theatre regards this as yet another stage in the continued attacks and harassment that the theatre has been facing for several months including attacks on the theatre and repeated nightly arrests of its members by the Israeli military Whatever reasons the Israeli authorities will give for this cynical turn around it further jeopardizes the work of The Freedom Theatre in advocating non violent resistance and puts Zakaria s safety at
