Honestly I'm not sure how effective letters are but I think Addameer is an incredible organization and these women, like all Palestinian political prisoners, need international support. Please check Addameer's website for more information about administrative detention and their international campaign to stop it.
Addameer has also put together profiles of the two women illegally held by Israel that are mentioned below. These profiles thoughtfully done and are also easy to print out for education and to encourage more people to support the campaign. I don't know how to attach them and can't find them on Addameer's website so email me and I'll send them.
Please read the urgent appeal on behalf of two women who are currently held in administrative detention.
Majeda Fidda is an elected member of Nablus municipality Council. She was arrested from the family home in Nablus. A few minutes passed midnight on 6 August 2008 Israeli soldiers stormed her house and proceeded to a search. Five months later, on 31 December 2008 she was acquitted of all charges and subsequently placed under administrative detention. Her order is expected to end on 30 June 2009. Please write to the Israeli government, military and legal authorities and demand that Ms Majeda Fidda be released immediately and that her administrative detention not be renewed.
Siham Al Heh is a social worker from Sourif in Hebron. Siham was arrested from her family home at 1:30 am on 26 March 2009. A few days following her arrest, Siham was informed that she would be detained for a 3 month period in administrative detention, without charge or trial. Her potential – but by no means certain – release is now expected on 25 June 2009. Please write to the Israeli government, military and legal authorities and demand that Siham Al-Heh be released immediately and that her administrative detention not be renewed.
