(en) sas madrid press communication: The Support Platform for Nines and Palestine is born (07/08/2019). (ca, it)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 12 Jul 2019 09:42:32 +0300

Various groups and individuals are organizing against the criminalization of Nines Maestro and two other women for raising solidarity aid for Palestine. ---- The Nines and Palestine Support Platform is set up with the objective of coordinating and promoting support activities for Nines Maestro and two other activists (who have preferred to remain anonymous) accused of financing terrorism for collecting funds for the reconstruction of facilities health services in Gaza after the bombings in 2014 and 2015. ---- After the Israeli attacks on Gaza, a first collection of 5,300 euros was carried out in 2014, channeled through Leila Khaled, and a second one of 3,085 euros in 2015, which was sent through an official representative of the Palestinian National Authority. .

Now the National Court has ordered the opening of summary proceedings for collaboration with terrorist organization, a crime that could lead to sentences of two to ten years in prison and fines for triple the amount sent. The pretext used by the court - the channeling of solidarity aid through the Palestinian leader Leila Khaled, member of an organization, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which is considered by the EU as a terrorist organization - is unacceptable. Leila Khaled is a symbol of the resistance of her people and is invited with some frequency - as in the occasion mentioned - by municipalities such as Barcelona and Madrid and other academic and social institutions.

The Support Platform for Nines and Palestine is created to provide information and dissemination of the case, seek support at the state and international level and contribute to defray judicial expenses.

Among the groups integrated in the platform are Anticapitalists, BDS, Corredor del Henares CGT, Communist Initiative, IU Madrid City, The Commune, Mothers Against Repression, Anti-repression Movement of Madrid, Node50, Peace with Dignity, Red Network, Union Health Assembly -Madrid. It is and will be constantly open to the incorporation of new organizations and people interested in spreading a clear message: internationalist solidarity is not a crime.

First actions

A collection of signatures of support has been launched around the Manifesto Against the Criminalization of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, in addition to starting contacts with various City Councils, jurists and artists from all over the State.

The Platform already has a website https://www.conninesporpalestina.org/, a Twitter profile (@PNinesPalestina) and an identifying image that will be disseminated in the coming days:

During the summer, the objective of the platform is to publicize the case and collect support, with the aim of starting a second phase of dissemination and coordinated activities at the state level from September, which will culminate in a more far-reaching support event before December 2019.

During the week that follows, dissemination actions will be carried out at the next La Karmela festivities, in Vallecas, centralized in a permanent information stand.

An accusation that seeks to repress internationalist solidarity

Ángeles Red militant Master of Red, ex-deputy of IU in the Congress of Deputies (1989 and 2000), communist, medical, anti-fascist militant and against the war that has made internationalism a permanent cause.

The case against Nines Maestro and two other compañeras represents a legal measure of criminalization of a solidary act. If at the beginning of the year an accusation for terrorism financing offense appeared unprecedented, on June 14 the news was received that the National Court had denied the dismissal requested by the defense.

In statements to the press Nines Maestro made it clear that "The only thing we have done has been to raise money for humanitarian aid in Palestine after the attacks of Israel on two occasions: one in mid-2014 and another at the end of 2015. Nothing more. We delivered the money collected, first, to Leila Khaled and, later, to a representative of the Palestinian National Authority, we never thought that we would meet a demand to finance terrorism, it does not make sense.
