Leila Khaled solidarity with Georges Abdallah !


Leila Khaled solidaire de Georges Abdallah ! by coup-pour-coup




Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, a 64 year-old Lebanese communist, was arrested in Lyon (France) on 24 October 1984 and sentenced to life imprisonment for actions for which the Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Factions (LARF) claimed responsibility.

In 1978 he fought with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) to push back the Israeli invasion of the Lebanon.

He was due for release in 1999, and keeping him in jail responds to a political decision on the part of the French State, with the backing of Israel and the United States. The latest request for parole for Georges Ibrahim Abdallah filed in 2014 was once again turned down. But we will not be deterred by this decision; it will only make us all the more determined! We will not be silenced by this decision; we will make our voice heard!

Georges Ibrahim Abdallah is an antiimperialist, pro-Palestinian militant held in jail by the French State.

At a time when hundreds of Palestinian prisoners are fighting against their imprisonment and the occupation of Palestine, it is our duty as antiimperialist militants in France and around the world to join forces more than ever for the release of Georges Abdallah so that he can return to the Lebanon.

The 24 October 2015 will mark the 32nd anniversary of his detention, when a large demonstration is being organised in France and around the world:

- National demonstration in front of Lannemezan prison on Saturday 24 October 2015 at 2 p.m.

- Actions, rallies and demonstrations in towns and cities around the world around the 24 October 2015.

“The best solidarity for a political prisoner is to get increasing involvement on the ground in the fight against the system of exploitation and domination.” Georges Abdallah.

An open-price coach will be leaving from Toulouse (Basso Cambo metro station at 11 a.m.).
