Support for Vanunu Needed Now
From the International Campaign to Free Mordechai Vanunu; December 1, 1999 International Prisoners for Peace Day
On November 24, Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot published parts of the trial protocols and investigation material in the case of nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu, following the release for publication of more than 1,200 pages of material by the Jerusalem District Court. This material has been secret for the past 13 years, since Vanunu was kidnapped and tried in camera. The published articles include details of his kidnapping, testimony of Shin-Beit interrogators, and much more information related to the case. As a result of the publication of this information, public discussion has been raised in Israel about Israel's policy of secrecy on nuclear issues in general , and about the Vanunu case in particular.
Sometime probably in one week or two Vanunu will have a parole board hearing. He has already served over two-thirds of his 18 year sentence, and so is eligible for parole.
PLEASE SEND LETTERS, FAXES AND EMAILS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO THE FOLLOWING OFFICIALS, ASKING FOR HIS UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE FROM PRISON.

This shall be done through a transnational structure, a "Platform" at the example of existing platforms, which are involved in a dialogue on Brussels level and also serve as facilitators to bring information back from Brussels to their grassroots members.
