PHM strongly condemns the arrest and ongoing detention of Daoud al-Ghoul, a Palestinian PHM activist.

Daoud al-Ghoul, an IPHU alumni, PHM Palestinian activist and the director of youth programs for the Health Work Committees in Jerusalem and the Kanaan Network of Palestinian civil society organizations and a prominent community organizer, was arrested by Israeli occupation military forces on 25 June.
The People’s Health Movement world-wide:

  •     Demands the release of Daoud al-Ghoul.
  •     Calls on the European Union to take action. The targeting of Al-Ghoul appears to be in retaliation for his testimony before the European Parliament. The EU cannot be silent on this case.
  •     Demands an end to the EU-Israel Association Agreement.
  •     Calls for protests at Israeli consulates or embassies for Daoud Ghoul and Palestinian prisoners.
  •     Urges support for the Boycott, Divest and Sanction Campaign. Hold Israel accountable for its violations of international law. Don’t buy Israeli goods, and campaign to end investments in corporations that profit from the occupation.
