Of course, solidarity has never been included in any code as an offense.
However, associative activists who are only helping people in very precarious situations, victims of dangerous, violent and even inhuman decisions, find themselves facing justice today.
With the introduction of a state of emergency, and in the context of the so-called “migratory crisis”, there has been a resurgence of prosecutions aimed at preventing the expression of solidarity with migrants, refugees, Roma and undocumented migrants. It is the support for all foreigners which tends to become suspect, the expression of the contestation of the policies being carried out which is assimilated with rebellion and the disturbance to public order.
Freedom, Bound is a multi-media exhibit that aims to historicize contemporary expressions and acts of Black-Palestinian solidarity within the rich legacy of a long established and dynamic international freedom struggle. The Freedom, Bound collection will feature key artifacts over decades of collective, transnational-work in pursuit of historic justice, with an initial focus on the chosen alliance between Black Americans and Palestinians. The exhibit’s curatorial framework employs a non-linear approach to history, displaying present and past expressions of solidarity simultaneously. The transhistorical presentation draws attention to the timeless resonance and inherent interconnectedness of struggles against oppression.
In Germany, the account of the group “Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Middle East” (Jüdische Stimme für gerechten Frieden in Nahost”) has been closed by the “Bank for Social Economy” (Bank fuer Sozialwirtschaft AG).

A Statement From Anonymous Israeli Activists:
We would like to alert you to an ominous development in Israel. Having denied Palestinians under Occupation their rights to any form of political protest, the Israeli government is now in the process of doing the same to Israeli citizens who support the Palestinian cause. Last week the Israeli police arrested Ezra Nawi, our friend and prominent dissident, who has been indispensable in the struggle for the survival of Palestinian communities in the South Hebron Hills.
As part of the International Day against Islamophobia on the 12th of December 2015
Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, London, Madrid, Paris
Joint statement by Belgian Union of Progressive Jews (UPJB) and French Jewish Peace Union (UJFP)
Like all citizens deeply attached to justice and humanity, we were stunned and appalled at the mass slaughters that hit Paris on the 13th of November and whose ensuing shockwave became worldwide.
As members of Jewish communities around the world, we are horrified by the wave of violence that is sweeping the streets of Palestine/Israel, costing the lives of over 30 people, both Palestinians and Israelis in the past two weeks alone.
We will not surrender to despair - We will stand together!
Arabs and Jews want to live in security. Real security, without occupation and without killing. We know that only with a just solution to the conflict will be able to stop the killing and the hatred, to build a different reality. A reality of security.

The passengers were dragged against their will to the city of Ashdod in Israel.

June 9, 2015. Night has fallen on Marseille, it’s around 2 am when the Raid (the anti-terrorist unit of the French National Police) closed the whole neighborhood, forbidding any movements in it, and broke down the door of a building. A neighbor, worried by the noise, is stepping out the front door to check what is happening, he is thrown on the floor bluntly.
