Abu Sakha is a 23 year old Palestinian. He has been working at the Palestinian circus school for four years inspiring and giving hope to children every day. On the 14th December he was arrested by Israeli forces. No charges have been pressed against him but the Israeli government can hold him indefinitely without charge. This is called 'administrative detention'. He has no contact with friends and family. Inhumane conditions including torture and solitary confinement are standard procedure in Israeli prisons. Abu Sakha is one of hundreds of young Palestinians being held without charge. The Israeli practice of administrative detention has been condemned on numerous occasions by the UN Human Rights Office and the Human Rights Committee that oversees implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Israel has ratified.Show your support for Abu Sakha and all those like him.
