Dhoruba Bin Wahad is a Veteran Black Panther and 19-year political prisoner in this country.  He won his freedom in 1990 after a New York State judge found that the FBI had suppressed evidence that could have helped clear him of his 1971 charge.  He recently tried to enter the West Bank to attend a Palestinian conference on political prisoners and was denied entry by Israeli authorities.  There are over 11,000 Palestinian political prisoners being held by Israel with hundreds of them under the age of 16.

Ali Abunimah, founder of the Electronic Intifadah, is one of the more than 1,300 international solidarity activists who participated in the historic Gaza Freedom March.  He is a writer and commentator on Middle East and Arab-American affairs. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, the Financial Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Jordan Times, Lebanon’s Daily Star and Ha’aretz, among others. He is frequent guest on local, national and international radio and television, including public radio and television, CNN, MSNBC, Fox, the BBC and many others.
