June 19 is the International Day of Revolutionary Prisoners.
This is another opportunity to express our solidarity with Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, an Arab revolutionary communist activist who fought for the national liberation struggle of Palestine and has been incarcerated in the jails of the French state for 33 years. Sentenced to life for complicity in acts of resistance claimed by the Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Factions, while his country Lebanon was invaded by Zionist troops, he has been releasable since 1999. Despite two releases pronounced by the sentencing court, Georges Abdallah is kept in prison in France, on the injunction of the US government.
Georges Ibrahim Abdallah is a political prisoner who has no regrets or remorse for the battle he has always led and which he is pursuing today for justice, freedom and the emancipation of oppressed peoples. This struggle is fully part of the today’s struggles. It is the struggle of the just and legitimate revolts of those who oppose the capitalist offensive and its wars of plunder. It is the struggle of all those who face the repressive state violence, which falls on them to try to gag them, would it be on the streets, in working-class neighborhoods or on political and trade union activists. This fight of a lifetime is also ours!
He is of our struggles, we are of his fight! That is why we call on all those who like us stand alongside the peoples’ in struggle, together with the Palestinian resistance who is fighting against capitalism, imperialism, zionism, colonialism and the Arab reactionary states to join us on Saturday, June 17 to call for his release.
