Verdict expected in the trial of poet Dareen Tatour
After two years and a half in which the poet Dareen Tatour was held in
prison and under house arrest
for the `crime` of writing a poem and publishing it on the Internet, the
verdict in her trial is to be announced.

The verdict announcement session will be held this Thursday
May 3rd,
at 11:00,
in the Nazareth Magistrate`s Court.

If convicted, the time she spent in house arrest will not be offset from the
sentence (!!!); Dareen may be sent to prison for a prolonged period of time.

Our presence in court is our way of supporting Dareen in these critical days
for her when she fights for her freedom and to send a clear message to the
prosecution and judges against political persecution and the repression of
freedom of speech, protest and art.

We are organizing to travel to Nazareth together (please contact us if you
have available places):

From Haifa: Yoav Bar 054-4790989
From Tel Aviv: Alma Katz 054-4330288
