Yousef Habash, National #bds committee member travel ban to be dealt in court this wednsday

Israel has prevented Yousef Habash from leaving the West Bank for the past year. The reason: he belongs to a political party.

Yousef is the public relations officer of the Union of Health Work Committees, the biggest NGO in the West Bank, and a member of the BDS National Committee.

There will be a court case in this matter on Wednesday 20 June at 11.30 a.m. in Jerusalem. HWC has asked activists and organizations to attend – Yousef obviously can’t attend himself.

Yousef has also personally asked that as many anti-colonial Israeli activists as possible attend this trial.
