Solidarity Needed: Paul Murphy MEP still in jail

Israeli authorities delay deportation, continue imprisonment

Paul Murphy, Socialist Party MEP, and other activists on the ’Freedom Waves to Gaza’ flotilla went before a judge today as required by Israeli law. While deportation has been agreed there is no time frame established. All of the activists remain in jail as a consequence.

The lawyers involved have reported that the continuing incarceration – which has followed the illegal kidnapping of these activists in international waters – is a political decision from above, and not linked to any judicial questions.

We call for immediate release of Paul Murphy MEP and all other activists illegally detained. We are also calling for the immediate stepping up of the solidarity campaign to put pressure on the Israeli regime. Protests should be held outside Israeli embassies and consulates.

Protests letters should be sent to embassies and to the following
