Hebron activist speaks at UN Human Rights Council

Maan News Agency | June 10, 2013

223015_345x230[1]HEBRON (Ma’an) — A human rights activist from Hebron on Monday discussed the plight of Palestinian prisoners at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

“I was detained 20 times in 2012 alone despite the fact that I am a human rights activist and non-violence advocate,” Amr told the council.

Amr, who founded the Youth Against Settlements group in Hebron, was invited to speak by UN Special Rapporteur Richard Falk and addressed the council as well as representatives of dozens of international human rights groups.

He discussed the oppression and humiliation Palestinian prisoners face in Israeli custody, and spoke about Israeli efforts to force Palestinians from Hebron and replace them with Jewish settlers.

Amr highlighted that Israel plans to bring over 1,000 settler families to live in the heart of the West Bank city, and noted Israel’s closure of Shuhada Street, which housed over 1,800 shops.

The activist urged the international community to impose sanctions on Israel over its ongoing violations of international law.
