What is happening at the Damoun Prison?
Damoun Prison (on the outskirts of Haifa) holds some 500 inmates, incarcerated under inhuman conditions – many of them Palestinians from the Occupied Territories who are being held for entering Israel to look for work.
On Saturday, November 9, 2002 Ta’ayush held a protest event outside Damoun Prison, which is located at the top of the road leading from the Atlit junction to Bet Oren. We brought with us food and basic equipment for the prisoners, for the beginning of Ramadan, in an attempt to alleviate their hardship, but we have not yet succeeded in bringing it in the prison.
In the activities at the Damoun Prison we:
* demanded the final closure of the prison, in which people are being held under inhuman conditions;
* protested the imprisonment of Palestinians whose only offence was a desire to feed their families;
* expressed solidarity by providing them with food for the Ramadan.
