On Monday, September 13, 2021, WOL said, “Yesterday (Sunday, September 12, 2021) we mobilized in support of the six Palestinian freedom fighters who escaped from the so-called maximum-security zionist Gilboa prison and in support of all of the Palestinian hunger strikers currently protesting against their indefinite detention without charge or trial.

We marched from Washington Square Park to Union Square chanting “1234 open up the prison doors, 5678 smash the settlers zionist state” and “from Attica to Gilboa Globalize the Intifada”

Before the march, we held a teaching on the six Palestinian freedom fighters, and the anniversary of the Attica prison uprising which inspired a Palestinian prisoner uprising in Ashkelon weeks later.

50 years later the prisoners are rising once again, and the spirit of Attica lives on. We made the connection to the murder of George Jackson who was a Black Panther Party leader that was imprisoned and then killed by prison guards, as his murder was one of the main catalysts for the uprising in Attica.

Similarly today we say Palestinians being killed and tortured in israeli jails, and this is a catalyst for an uprising behind and outside of the prison walls.

Palestinians are mobilizing in every corner of Palestine in support of these prisoners and the hunger strikers, and we must show solidarity as well from wherever we are in the world.

This is what it means to globalize the Intifada, to pay attention to what’s happening in Palestine and bring that conversation here to the point where it’s no longer ignorable. It is our responsibility and duty to do this as Palestinian prisoners continue to go on for months without food, and as the four of the six re-captured heroes are being subjected to cruel and inhumane torture and being denied the right to meet with lawyers.

The next protest starts at “Columbus Circle” @ 5:00PM September 17th.”

On Monday, September 13, 2021, WOL said on Instagram, “Zakaria Zubeidi is in dire condition after being tortured by Israeli authorities.

Zakaria Zubeidi, one of the 6 heroic freedom fighters who escaped from the Zionist Gilboa prison has been re-captured & is now being tortured by occupation forces. According to Zakaria’s brother, Gabriel Zubeidi, Zakaria is in critical condition as he is currently facing brutal torture methods such as electricution and is getting beaten to the point where he can’t sleep. The occupation forces have already broken his leg and are continuing to torture Zakaria along with the other 3 re-captured prison breakers, all of whom are being deprived from meeting their lawyers. These methods of torture are what all Palestinian Prisoners face on a daily basis.

This has led to an outbreak in Palestine as mass protests are taking place demanding freedom and justice for the re-captured prisoners. At this moment the people of Jenin are confronting the Israeli occupation seeking justice for Zakaria. As the people of Palestine and Jenin are mobilizing and resisting against the Israeli occupation in response to Zakaria’s deteriorating health condition, we too must fulfill our duty and resist by any means necessary. The Palestinians are calling the world to SAVE ZAKARIA’s life. Therefore, we must spread awareness, protest against the illegal occupation, and stand up for Zakaria Zubeidi.

NYC PROTEST this Friday September 17th at 5:00PM “Columbus Circle” !”

On Tuesday, September 14, 2021, WOL said on Instagram, “We posted an urgent update about Zakaria Zubeidi last night only to find it deleted by Instagram this morning and erased from everyone’s stories. They also threatened to shut down our account. This is the second time this happened. Our comrades had their pages and posts on this shut down too. We must defy this censorship and defend Zakaria and all Palestinian prisoners online & in the streets! LONG LIVE ZAKARIA ZUBEIDI #DefendZakaria.”
