Palestinian Teenager Remains Imprisoned Because She "Has No Fear" 18.1.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Ahed Tamimi -- the 16-year-old Palestinian activist who has been imprisoned since her arrest in December for slapping an Israeli soldier -- was denied bail at a January 17 hearing in a military court. Citing the teenager's lack of fear of Israeli soldiers as a reason to penalize her, the judge proved once again that sowing terror in children is an accepted tactic of the occupation. Sixteen-year-old Ahed Tamimi stands for a hearing in the military court at Ofer military prison in the West Bank village of Betunia on January 1, 2018. Israeli authorities are seeking 12 charges against Tamimi after a video of her slapping and kicking two Israeli soldiers in the West Bank went viral, her lawyer said.

Iranian workers and the poor, mostly teens and unemployed young adults, have staged a wave of protests that is shaking the country, particularly the religious and political elite. These are not the first protests against the Islamic Republic. In 2009, democracy activists built the Green Movement in opposition to then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's rigging of elections that returned the hard-liner to power. More recently, anger at growing class inequality has been the driving motive for strikes and actions over the last two years -- against a new president, Hassan Rouhani, who is associated with reform forces. In many ways, these economic protests have culminated in the current dramatic protest movement that swept through Iran over the last couple of weeks. Frieda Afary is an Iranian-American librarian and translator, producer of ...
