On 18 November 2014, in New York City, gathered a group of people of conscience.
Presented with the case of the Hares Boys, they then wrote letters to the boys’ mothers. They wrote by hand and from the heart. Here are these letters (.pdf), addressed to:
Ferial, Mother of Mohammed Suleiman
Nadwa, Mother of Mohammed Kleib
A huge thanks to everyone who participated. If you wish to organise a similar activity in your own area, or if you want to send individual letters to the Hares Boys or their families, please do not hesitate to contact us. Letters can also be sent directly to Israeli occupation prison Megiddo, where the boys are being held (although there is no guarantee prison/spy agency staff would not read what you wrote). Message us for the address.
The event in NYC was organised by The Campaign to Bring Mumia Home. Mumia Abu-Jamal is a truth-telling journalist and political prisoner, serving “life without parole” sentence in a Pennsylvania (US) prison after spending 30 years on death row. His trials “systematically denied him due process, involving prosecutors’ withholding of evidence, racial bias in juror selection and a judge’s rampant bias”.
May justice prevail and Mumia is free.
May justice prevail and the Hares Boys are free.
May justice prevail and all the world’s political prisoners are free.
Pingback: TAKE ACTION | Hares Boys
I want to write the boys. I need names and where to send it to. I live in the Netherlands and Iam thinking of doing something for these boys. My email is email@example.com
Thanks in advance and what a good work you guys do!
Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and actions.
You can write to the Hares Boys at the following address:
Beit Soher Megiddo
P.O. Box 2424
Please be aware that it is very likely that the Israeli Prison Service would open your letters before forwarding them to the kids. We hope, however, that they would reach the boys in any case – IPS runs occupation prisons after all and does not respect the rights of prisoners, including to send and receive mail. However your gesture is very human and we hope the Hares Boys will be able to read your letters.
Thank you so much Christine.
I am going to send them some little prayer books and some chocolate, pray to god that they will receive these items, can you tell me please if there is any change in the address above?
Thank you in advance
Thank you for your kind thoughts and actions, Alina. The boys have now been transferred to separate prisons in the occupied Naqab desert. We do not have their addresses, unfortunately.
Is the adress still the same?
Christine, do you mean in prison? The boys have been moved to a prison in the Naqab desert, away from Megiddo in Galillee (the North). We are not sure of how to address letters to them exactly at this point. Another way would be to try through Addameer, the Palestinian prisoner support organization: http://www.addameer.org/about/Contact-Us
