I believe we are not alone anymore :)

 

Today we had a demonstration in solidarity with my father and Hassan Mousa and Zaydoon Srour. And as a big surprise: more than 70 international activists from everywhere joined us!

They showed their solidarity with our cause and asked that my father as well as thetwo other committee members be released. Because of their strong presence, the Israeli military didn’t shoot tear gas. I’m so happy, that people from all over the world come and join us in our struggle.

Also, I just spoke to N., she told me that already some people gave money to get my father and the two others out of jail. This is a good day. I so much hope that our movement and the solidarity people are showing will become bigger and bigger each day and spread everywhere. If the world stands by us, it will bring justice to Ni’lin & to Palestine and peace will spread from here to the whole world.

About Saeed Amireh

My name is Saeed Ibrahim Amireh, I am 18 years old and I have been born and raised in Ni'lin, in the Westbank. During the summertime, I love to sleep on the rooftop of our house. When I see the beautiful stars, I dream to travel to far away places and meet people from all over the world. I can see the Mediterranean Sea from our roof. Often, I imagine what it is like to be at the beach and see the sun go down. I have never been to the sea because Israel does not allow us to go there. One week before the final exams in 12th grade, Israeli soldiers raided our house in the middle of the night, locked the whole family but me in a room, beat me, destroyed my room and arrested me. I was in jail for 4 months. They kept me in a small cell in complete darkness, with mice and cockroaches everywhere. They beat, threatened, and interrogated me constantly. To this date I know nothing about why they even arrested me, other than to punish my father for his non-violent activity in the "Popoular Committee Against The Wall". I've always dreamt to study and become a communication engineer. But since my father is in jail, me and my older brother have to work and take care of our mother and our small siblings. I miss my father so much, I would give anything for him to be free. But I am not even allowed to go and visit him in jail. Only my mother is allowed; she could go visit him for the first time after he was imprisoned for 4 months. Like all the villagers of Ni'lin, I wish I could taste the flavour of freedom just once.
