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.
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."
Then, in April 2005, Vanunu learned that his restrictions were renewed. Unless they're lifted he won't be able to leave Israel until at least April 2006.
Considering that Vanunu's 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 - he and supporters around the world continue to work for his full freedom.
Your help is needed NOW to apply maximum pressure and demand that they unconditionally release Mordechai Vanunu!
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.”
