Israel to 'free' Palestinian hunger striker  

arabstateofmind:

Israel has agreed to free Khader Adnan, a Palestinian detained without charge, who has been on hunger strike for more than nine weeks, one of his lawyers has said.

The revelation came hours before the supreme court was to hear an urgent appeal on Tuesday for Adnan’s release.

The lawyer said that a settlement had been reached for ending his detention.

The continued ‘administrative detention’ of the Palestinian from the West Bank had stroked global anger with protesters clashing again with police in the West Bank on Tuesday.

Israel arrested Adnan, a 33-year-old baker, on December 17 near the northern West Bank town of Jenin. Israel accuses him of being a spokesman for the Palestinian group, Islamic Jihad.

He told lawyers and human rights organisations that masked soldiers violently broke into his house, where his mother and children were present.

Adnan said that his hands were shackled behind him and that he was thrown onto the floor of the military jeep and kicked and slapped by soldiers while they took him to the settlement of Mevo Dotan.

He began refusing food a day after his arrest and is now said to be in critical condition.

Earlier, Saeb Erakat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, urged world leaders to pressure Israel to free Adnan.

“I sent messages to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton today, and spoke with the EU and Chinese envoys,” Erakat told AFP news agency.

“I asked them all to intervene in Adnan’s case. They must apply pressure on Israel to release him,” he said.

World leaders had expressed growing concern over the fate of the prisoner, who was held without charge under a procedure known as “administrative detention”.

There are currently more than 300 Palestinians being held in administrative detention by Israel, without charge or trial, for renewable periods of six months, without any way of defending themselves.

Palestinian officials warned that his death in custody could start a violent backlash, while a spokeswoman for the Israel Prisons Service said on Sunday that they were “constantly monitoring” the situation.

“We understand the implications of this case,” Sivan Weizman said.

But on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office went on the offensive, with a spokesman describing Adnan as “a dangerous terrorist” despite the fact he has yet to be charged with any security offences.

Until now, Adnan has not been charged and the military court that approved Adnan’s detention has refused to release any details on the reason for his arrest or ongoing imprisonment.

Here is a link to a list of companies that support Israel.

http://inminds.com/boycott-israel-2012.php

Also the site provides proof on how the companies support Israel financially. As part of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement, boycotting these products is the first step. This is the least (seriously the least) we can do to support and help the Palestinians that must live under the Israeli Occupation.

Protesters charge police with shields in attempted building occupation — Oakland, CA
 
Police fired what  appeared to be smoke grenades on Saturday at a group of hundreds of  Occupy Oakland protesters who tore down a chain-link fence as they tried  to gain entrance to the city’s shuttered convention center.
The scuffles marked the latest  confrontation between police and Occupy protesters seeking to regain  lost momentum in their movement against economic inequality after  authorities cleared protest camps around the country late last year.
Occupy  Oakland organizers had vowed to take over the abandoned building to  establish a new headquarters for their movement and draw attention to  homelessness in a move seen as a challenge to authorities who have  blocked similar efforts before.
But  near the convention center, several dozen police officers declared an  unlawful assembly and confronted the demonstrators at the fence, firing  smoke canisters into the crowd after telling them to disperse through  loudspeakers.
The crowd fell back  as the smoke hit, but then made a second push toward the fence, where  they were held back by police. Some crowd members tried to circumvent  the police line, and surged toward police as more smoke canisters were  fired, carrying shields made of plastic garbage cans and corrugated  metal.
“The City of Oakland  welcomes peaceful forms of assembly and freedom of speech, but acts of  violence, property destruction and overnight lodging will not be  tolerated,” police said in a statement.
Police said they had yet to use tear gas, but made no mention of smoke canisters. They said “use of gas may occur if necessary.”
Protesters  in Oakland loosely affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement that  began in New York last year have repeatedly clashed with police during a  series of marches and demonstrations.
In  October, former Marine Scott Olsen was left in critical condition with a  head injury following a confrontation with police on the streets of  Oakland in which tear gas was deployed.
Organizers  say Olsen was struck in the head by a tear gas canister. Authorities  opened an investigation into that incident but have not said how they  believe he was hurt.

With Occupy protests around the country, things are heating up. With disbursement of tear gas and pepper spray by police, how are regular people able to keep safe?

Normally, one would buy a gas mask, but given cost, bulkiness and being a target when wearing one, this might not be the best option. Based on a pamphlet floating around the internet, you can make your own primitive basic gas mask out of some stuff you have lying around the house.


WARNING: Tear gas is no joke, it burns, hurts and makes you cry for your mommy.

can we talk about how I hate the way people like to use the word primitive?
