When: Thursday February 15th 12.30pm
Where: Peace Court in the Russian Compound. Jerusalem
Mohammad Mansour, a Palestinian organiser for non-violent resistance to the occupation, faces trial tomorrow. He has been falsely charged with assaulting a police officer, throwing stones, and encouraging others to do likewise. He has also been charged with involvement in “illegal demonstrations”.
Mohammad said, “Despite the military having cameras to film the demonstration, they do not have a single shred of evidence that I did anything illegal, because I didn’t. They want to get me because I am standing up against the occupation, that’s it.”
Father of five, Mohammad has been offered increasingly better deals from the prosecution. The last offer from the Judge was to let him go if he paid the sum of his bail. Mohammed refused to pay because he said “I am not guilty and if I pay any money then I admit guilt for something I did not do. I do not want to give one shekel to the occupation”
Tomorrow Mohammed has another “final hearing,” and would appreciate the solidarity of anyone who would like to see his trial and witness the hypocrisy of the occupation.
