Empire Files: Life Sentences for Charity Work – Free the 5!

Posted on by

The Holy Land Foundation Five are Palestinian political prisoners sentenced up to upwards of 65 years in US prison for providing aid to refugees.

Although no proof exists for the organization providing support for terrorism, it was targeted in the Bush administration’s post-9/11 dragnet, setting an alarming precedent for activists in the US. Abby Martin sits down with an expert on the case, Miko Peled, to learn more about this little-known case.

Miko Peled is an Israeli-born activist for Palestinian rights, and the son of a famous Israeli general. He is the author of “The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine” and “Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five.”
