Demo: No collective punishment! Free all political prisoners! Oppression will not bring back the abducted boys!
Say no to collective punishment!
Free all political prisoners!
Acts of oppression in no way help bring back the abducted boys!

Saturday, 21.6, 20:30, in front of the Kiria (Ministry of Defence), Kaplan
Street, Tel Aviv.

The army, under government instructions, is embarking on hundreds of arrests and
detentions, nightly raids on homes, closure of entire regions, arrests of
journalists and Palestinian Parliamentarians, the collective punishment of the
residents of Hebron, Nablus, Bethlehem, Jenin and many other locations, the
detention of children and minors, threats of cutting off electricity and phone
networks, and further acts of oppression. The true aim of all that is NOT to
locate the abducted boys.

We hope with all our hearts that the boys will be found and safely returned to
their homes. In practice, though, Netanyahu and his government are cynically
using them as a pretext for an all-out offensive. The government states openly
and bluntly that they shall continue with the same tactics, regardless of the
current search.

For the Government of Israel, this is merely an excuse to crack down on Hamas,
and break up the Palestinian Unity agreement.

The military budgets were about to be cut - now it`s quite obvious that they are
going to be increased yet again.

We shall gather, to call for an end to the daily violence and killing. Enough
with the abuse and collective punishment of a civil population, living under
military occupation!

Saturday, 21.6, 20:30, in front of the Kiria (Ministry of Defense), in Tel Aviv
(Kaplan Street).

The demonstration is initiated by grassroots activists, involved in various
organizations. We call upon all groups and movements to join in and endorse this
initiative. Every day that goes by, is one day of silence too many!
