Help Silwan Resident Adnan Gheith Stay in Jerusalem
I know the Occupation in and out - I lived under it my entire life,
but even I cannot imagine being in Adnan Gheith's position. I don't
want to believe that something like this is possible, and I want to do
all I can to stop what Israel is trying to do to him.
On November 28th, Adnan, a Silwan grassroots organizer, received
written notification that Israel intends to issue an order expelling
him for a four months period from his city - Jerusalem. Adnan is a
resident of Silwan, and a member of the al-Bustan Neighborhood's
committee, which was formed to oppose plans for massive house
demolitions. In a reality where Palestinians' right for freedom of
expression in not even lip service, organizing your community against
its impending destruction is reason enough to be ripped from it.
The order against Adnan is not part of a legal process where
suspicions, charges or evidence have any part. It is an administrative
order that circumvents the rule of law, which forms the foundation of
western democracy. In this harsh reality, a person's rights are taken
without due process, with no charges, based on secret evidence and
with no possibility to truly defend oneself. It is the essence of a
Kafkaesque legal procedure in the taunting maze of the Occupation's
bureaucracy and power.
But it is not too late to act up and make a difference. Adnan's
expulsion from his city and family and life, can be prevented.
Please use the template in the following links to ask your government
to speak up against Adnan's expulsion from the only home he has and
against the demolitions in Silwan. - Available & ready made letters:
