Mordechai Vanunu - Out of Prison, Not Free Yet
Actions marking one year since Vanunu's release from prison - April 18-22

The International Campaign to Free Mordechai Vanunu

April 21 will mark one year since Mordechai Vanunu was released from Ashkelon Prison, after spending 18 years behind bars. But Mordechai Vanunu is not yet free: by means of British Mandate Emergency Regulations from 1945, the Israeli government continues to keep him hostage in Israel, and to severely violate his human rights. Moreover, Vanunu is being charged with violating the restrictions by committing the crime of... giving interviews to the world media.

Vanunu's supporters, anti-nuclear, peace and human right activists, from Israel and abroad, will gather in Israel from April 18-22, to protest the continued persecution of the nuclear whistleblower. We will call for Vanunu's full freedom and for abolishing nuclear weapons, in Israel and in the entire Middle East. We will call on Israel to open its nuclear installations to international inspection and monitoring and to cease its persecution of the only individual who has exposed secret nuclear weapons in the Middle East. We will call on the international community to perform its duty, and to protect the peoples of Israel and of the region from a dangerous nuclear program that is kept secret from the world.
