In Solidarity with Palestine
We strongly condemn the war crimes committed by the Israeli regime against the civilian population in Gaza. We express our solidarity with the Palestinian population and call for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the blockade.
On 13 December 2023, Ahmed Tobasi, theatre director, actor and artistic director of the Freedom Theatre in the Jenin camp in the West Bank was violently detained by the Israeli army. The Freedom Theatre is the place where children, youngsters, mothers, fathers, artists come together. The place is pivot for the social cohesion of the Jenin camp, for Jenin city and the rest of the West Bank.
While writing our letter, we received word that Ahmed Tobasi was released. But many others stay detained, were killed or find themselves in life threatening situations.
We say : ENOUGH! Please support this call and sign!
Update: Watch here an interview with Ahmed Tobasi after his release
