Free the Tamimi Women

Tuesday morning at 3:00 AM, Israeli soldiers burst into the Tamimi family home and dragged 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi out of bed. They placed her in handcuffs and put her in the back of their military jeep. The next day her mother Nariman was arrested at the police station trying to find her daughter. The following afternoon, 21-year-old cousin Nour was taken into custody. Manal Tamimi was arrested protesting at the court for her sister and nieces to be released. 

The Tamimi family have lived their entire lives under Israeli military rule his entire life, never knowing a single day of true freedom. It is their right and responsibility to protest for Palestinian freedom and equality.

"We demand that Ahed, Narmian, Nour, Manal and all members of the Tamimi family be released now.

The international community must put an end to the ill-treatment and detention of Palestinian children and the persecution of Palestinian human rights defenders. Enough is enough.
