April 17, 2018: Mark Palestinian Prisoners Day, Boycott HP Picket
5-6:30 pm, Best Buy, 798 Granville St.(at Robson), Vancouver
Facebook Event
April 17 marks Palestinian Prisoners Day, a day commemorated since 1979 when Palestinians remember their friends and family members held in Israeli prisons. And the large numbers of incarcerated Palestinians affect almost every family – currently over 6000 prisoners in total, including 450 administrative detainees (no charge or trial) and hundreds of child prisoners.
Join us to mark Palestinian Prisoners Day and to say #BoycottHP, Technology of Israeli Apartheid, Technology of Israeli Oppression!
