After 40 days in prison Shadi has been released under house arrest. There will be further court proceedings but he will be home with his family, Abboud (his dog), online study, and to watch the World Cup. For his return, the whole neighborhood helped prepare his favorite dish of “Koussa wa waraq” (Stuffed zucchini and vine leaves).
And Senator Fatima Payman for her speech in the Senate referencing Shadi and the situation in Palestine.
There is still work to be done. Shadi faces another court hearing on 12 December. 160 children are being held in detention illegally in Israel.
Let’s build on the wave of support we’ve set in motion and continue to support Shadi and Palestinian child prisoners. Wondering what else you can do to help? Join Coalition for Justice and Peace in Palestine – Sydney to stay involved. Together we can achieve results!
