Tom Engelhardt | counterpunch.org | 2019-01-09

Freedom now for PFLP leader Ahmad Sa'adat
Fight Back | fightbacknews.org | 2019-01-08
It's time to step up the struggle to free Ahmad Sa'adat, a noted Palestinian political prisoner and General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

He is a brilliant Marxist and advocate for socialism, who stands for liberation of every inch of Palestine. Sa'adat's courage in the face of the Israel's brutality shines as an example to everyone who yearns for a just world.
