Oxford Women in Black Christmas Vigil for Bethlehem, Palestine (14.12.13)

By Pam Parsons, Women in Black, Oxford

Over the last 5 years  the attention of residents and visitors to Oxford has been caught by a group of women dressed in black standing silently in Bonn Square holding black hands in English Arabic and Hebrew saying “Stop the Occupation” with a banner naming them as “Women in Black, Oxford”.

Women in Black Vigil - against israel's abuse of Palestinian Prisoners

Please join us in support of the Palestinian Prisoners held in Israeli jails, to protest against their incarceration and abuse by the Israeli authorities. Currently Israel imprisons close to 5,000 Palestinians, most held illegally in jails in Israel. Many are held in “Administrative Detention” (without trial) – detentions which are often renewed for years. DCI (Defence for Children International) Palestine reported 236 children to be in Israeli military custody in February 2013 including children as young as 12 years old.
