Occupation forces arrested this evening Thursday, 14/6/2012 Engineer Issa Amr Youth Caucus, Coordinator in Youth against Settlement at the Allenby Bridge after a detention of more than five hours and took him to an unknown destination.

This came after the organization of the march of women in Shuhadaa street for the first time.  ‘Amro was heading to Italy at the invitation of Vice-President of European Parliament and a member of the Italian Parliament Luisa Morgantini to train a group of Italian peace activists on the methods of nonviolent Popular Resistance and to provide an explanation about the situation in Palestine as well as to prepare for the Fourth International campaign to re-open Shuhada Street.

A spokesman for the Youth against settlements Tamer al-Atrash: This comes at the heels of the women’s march in Shuhadaa street, in which Israeli and international women wore traditional Palestinian dresses and headscarves. It is clear that the army and police are seeking revenge which they directed against our coordinator.
