Demand freedom for jailed Palestinian leaders Khalida Jarrar and Khitam Saafin

By Freedom Road Socialist Organization

The Freedom Road Socialist Organization demands that the Israeli occupation immediately release Khalida Jarrar, a parliamentarian and longtime leader in the fight to liberate Palestine, along with Khitam Saafin, president of the Union of Palestinian Women's Committees. These steadfast women are both being held under an administrative detention order that can be extended indefinitely.

Khalida Jarrar, a leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and deputy in the Palestinian Legislative Council, is one of the many lawmakers who have been imprisoned by the Israeli occupation, and is one of 6000-plus Palestinian political prisoners. As the Palestinian people have strengthened their struggle to free every inch of historic Palestine, this Israeli occupation has increasingly turned to repression.

We urge progressive people everywhere to support the campaign to win freedom for all Palestinians held in Zionist jails, and we condemn the U.S. government for making the Israeli occupation of Palestine possible.

Release Khalida Jarrar and Khitam Saafin Now!
From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free!
