MORDECHAI
VANUNU

Israeli
Nuclear
Whistleblower

Mordechai Vanunu is in Ashkelon Prison
in Israel, serving an 18-year sentence for
informing the public about Israel's secret
nuclear weapons program.   Following his
revelations about Israel's nuclear weapons
to a British newspaper, he was lured from
Britain to Rome, where he was abducted
by Israeli agents.   The hand in the above
logo signifies the means by which Vanunu
pressed his palm to the window of a police
van in Jerusalem, on Sep 30 1986, to
inform the world of his kidnapping.

Until Mar 12 1998, he was held in solitary
confinement.  This is the longest known
stretch in solitary confinement to be
endured by anyone.   Within the past year,
the campaign for his release has
intensified worldwide.

Two years ago, 13 U.S. House of
Representatives members appealed for
his release.  Now that number has swelled
to 36.
