Campaign to Release Women Administrative Detainees

We Coalition of Women for Peace and Women's Organization for Political Prisoners are on a campaign to release women administrative detainees and administrative detainees in general. The detainees are women and mothers who have been separated from their families and whose dreams have been stolen from them. Let’s support them! Join our campaign and share their profiles with as many people as possible. Hashtag: #StopAdministrativeDetention

Administrative detention is a procedure that allows the Israeli occupation authorities to hold prisoners for extended periods of time using undisclosed “information” without charge. Administrative detention is used almost exclusively to detain Palestinians from the occupied Palestinian territory (OPT), which includes the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. An administrative detention order is for up to six months but can be extended for an indefinite number of times.

Women's Organization for Political Prisoners (WOFPP) is a group of women united in their opposition to the Israeli occupation. WOFPP's aim is to support women political prisoners and to promote the release of all political prisoners who have struggled, or are accused of having struggled, against the Israeli occupation and are held in Israeli jails.

Coalition of Women for Peace (CWP) is a feminist organization active in the struggle to end the Israeli occupation of Palestine, for the liberation of the Palestinian people from oppression, for the creation of a society based on principles of justice and equality. CWP brings together women from a wide variety of identities and groups, and initiates public campaigns and outreach programs, working to develop and integrate a feminist discourse on all levels of society.
