World-Wide Free Vanunu Vigils Protest 15 Years in Prison

September 30, 2001 marks the 15th anniversary of Mordechai Vanunu's 1986 kidnapping and imprisonment by the Israeli government. The occasion is being observed in cities around the world with vigils calling for his freedom.

Rolling around the globe over a span of 24 hours on September 25, vigils were scheduled for London, New Delhi, Chennai, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Wellington, Lisbon, Oslo and Jerusalem.

In addition, activists in Hiroshima, Tel Aviv, Boston, several cities in the U.K., Sweden and New Zealand are vigiling on different days that week. Many of the vigils will take place at Israeli Embassies and consulates. These vigils represent a strong global voice echoing Vanunu's call for nuclear abolition in the Middle East and around the world, while they also demand the immediate and unconditional release of Israel's nuclear whistleblower.

The next issue of I Am Your Spy will carry a full report and photos from these vigils.
