The Boston Coalition for Palestinian Rights is answering the Global Call for Justice for Ahed Tamimi and all children being held as political prisoners.

Ahed Tamimi is from the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh which has, since 2009, held weekly demonstrations  protesting the Israeli Occupation and loss of its land to a nearby settlement.  She was 16 years old when she was arrested two months ago for slapping an Israeli soldier who had entered the yard of her house shortly after her 14-year-old cousin was seriously wounded by being shot point blank in the face by a rubber bullet.  She has been in an Israeli military prison ever since, along with her mother Nariman who filmed the incident.
