Today in the afternoon the judge will read the verdict against Ahmed Issa, accused of seting fire in his cell.
The camapign FREE AHMED ISSA has staged a big welcome in front of court. We may have to defend his freedom again, because even if he is acquitted, he may be brought back to the detention complex, for being undocumented.
We don’t believe the IND and the Ministry of Justice will go to such an extreme, but how can we trust them?
The radical rapper Appa will perform on the street in front of the Palace of Justice, together with other actors and musicians.
And of course the Schiphol People are here. Together as one.
Come and join us at Prinsengracht 436 (near Leidseplein)

Donate some cash for the costs to 4864527 of All Included, Amsterdam, ref. Free AHMED ISSA.
After the verdict and the welcome ceremony we move to the Balie, around the corner across Leidseplein. Here we give a press conference and a theaterplay called “Donner“. It is a public confession by the ex-minister of Justice, who we claim is the first responsible for the Schiphol Fire.
M2M Radio will stream the event in De Balie live from ca. 3 p.m.
