Who is Marwan Barghouthi?

Marwan Barghouthi is a Palestinian freedom fighter and political leader who has been imprisoned by Israel for the past 12 years. Among the over 5,000 Palestinian political prisoners held by Israel, his name has emerged, both nationally and internationally, as central for unity, freedom and peace.

Marwan is a symbol of the Palestinian people’s quest for freedom, a uniting figure and an advocate of peace based on international law. As international efforts led to the release of Nelson Mandela and of all the anti-apartheid prisoners, we believe that the international community must help to secure the freedom of Marwan Barghouthi and all Palestinian prisoners, as an integral part of its moral, legal and political responsibility to assist the Palestinian people in the realization of their rights.

Therefore the Campaign for the Freedom of Marwan Barghouthi and All Palestinian Political Prisoners has been launched to call and act for the release of Marwan Barghouthi and all Palestinian political prisoners. Until their release, the rights of the Palestinian prisoners, as enshrined in international humanitarian law and human rights law, must be upheld, and the arrest and detention campaigns must cease.

About the speakers

FADWA BARGHOUTHI is a Palestinian lawyer, activist and tireless campaigner for the rights and freedoms of Palestinian political prisoners. Fawdwa is a member the council of the Fatah Palestinian liberation movement, and together with Marwan has three children whom she has raised alone for the past 12 years.

NEESHAN BALTON is the Director of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation in South Africa, an organisation that has been central to the Campaign to Free Marwan Barghouthi and All Palestinian Political Prisoners. Kathrada was a cellmate of Nelson Mandela on Robben Island during the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa, and the campaign was launched internationally from Mandela’s cell in October 2013.
