Take Action to #FreeSalah!

Salah is a 46-year-old human rights defender who was arrested in the middle of the night on October 26, 2016, and remains in prison to this day. He comes from the village of Nil’in, where he began to organize for his community and their land through our partner Stop the Wall. Beyond being jailed for over three and a half months he has also suffered from constant interrogations, including psychological and physical mistreatment.

We need you to let the Israeli Minister of Justice and the US Human Rights Commission know that the world condemns the ongoing repression of Palestinian human rights defenders and  Israel’s use of illegal practices, including the use of administrative detentions and "secret files."
