Drop Charges Against Human Rights Defender Issa Amro

December 24, 2020 /

Issa Amro is the co-founder of Youth Against Settlements in Hebron and is formally recognized as Palestinian Human Rights Defender. He is on trial in the Israeli military court for his peaceful community organizing.

The 18 charges presented by Israeli authorities have been labelled “baseless,” “politically motivated,” or “physically impossible” by Amnesty International and UN experts have expressed deep concern for Issa’s life and wellbeing.

Issa’s lawyer expects him to be convicted on the majority of the charges and she believes the judge will make the verdict very soon. He may face years in prison.

SIGN THE PETITION below to call for international protection of Issa Amro and for the Israeli authorities to drop the baseless charges.
