Demanding immediate release and an end to the targeting of artists
We are alarmed by the news that Producer Mustafa Sheta, Artistic Director Ahmed Tobasi (now released), and graduate artist Jamal Abu Joas of the Freedom Theatre in Jenin were detained by the Israeli Defence Force yesterday, along with over 100 other Palestinians.
We join in the demands for their immediate and unconditional release and support calls for an immediate end to targeting of artists.
We also pay tribute to the poet Refaat Alareer who was killed in Gaza last week and, remembering his poem If I Must Die, hope that the UN’s resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza will be enacted.
