International Call-In Days for Vanunu's Freedom

The ticking time bomb in the Negev Desert is still ticking, marking danger for the people of Israel and all neighboring countries. The calls for international inspection of the Dimona nuclear facility are growing louder, particularly from Israel's near neighbors. Even Dimona workers are now drawing attention to unsafe working conditions that are causing cancers and other illnesses.

If an Iraqi nuclear technician in the last decade had come forward to reveal previously unknown information about a secret Iraqi nuclear arsenal, that person would be hailed as a courageous hero. Mordechai Vanunu's act was courageous and heroic.

Now we see that Iraq's nuclear threat was never rebuilt, Libya has publicly abandoned nuclear ambitions, and Iran has opened up to nuclear inspections. The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, has recently urged Israel to dismantle its nuclear weapons program.

In the new global war climate, and with escalating conflict in the Middle East, Mordechai Vanunu's message of nuclear abolition resonates ever more loudly.


"Well you can put there my thanks greeting to all those who wrote.   If they want to receive my letters they can write me."

April 21, 2004.

On this momentous day, Mordechai Vanunu walked out of the prison that had confined him for nearly 18 years.

But he isn't free yet.

Upon his release from prison, Israel immediately forbid Vanunu to leave the country, and imposed other severe restrictions on him. The Israeli government claims Vanunu plans to tell even more state secrets.

But this is absurd. Mordechai Vanunu was locked away from the world for almost 18 years, after telling everything he knew to the London Sunday Times back in 1986. He has no more secrets to reveal and is not a threat to the security of the state of Israel.

On March 17, 2005, Israeli authorities served a 22 count indictment on Mordechai Vanunu for violating his restrictions, principally for his interviews with foreign media. Vanunu asserts, "These restrictions can't be honored because they violate human rights."

Now, on April 12, Vanunu learned that his restrictions have been renewed, and unless they're lifted he won't be able to leave Israel until at least April 2006.

Considering that his restrictions have been renewed, and that if convicted of the new charges he faces 3 more years in prison - and because he wants to leave Israel so he can rebuild his life - we continue to work for his full freedom.

We need your help NOW to apply maximum pressure and demand that they unconditionally release Mordechai Vanunu!

“One of my great encouragement and happiness in the first year [in prison] was to know that all London was covered by all those [censored]; the very secret place underground had become papers for covering dead fish and meat in the markets and so on; the most secrets that no one hear or saw, now they are equal to wrapping or just garbage papers. The secret of the building and the [nuclear weapons] secrets collapsed without any bombs, without killing anyone. That was the great power of a nonviolent act.”
-Mordechai Vanunu, March 12, 2002, on the publication of his photos in 1986 in the London Sunday Time

"Mordechai Vanunu is not a traitor,  
he is an Israeli hero.  
The nuclear bomb does not protect Israel,  
it endangers Israel."  
-Issam Makhoul, Knesset Member
