Anan Dana

HRD, Member
Hebron Defense Committee

Anan Dana is a human rights defender and founding member of the “Dismantle the Ghetto, Take Settlers Out of Hebron” campaign. He is also a member of the Hebron Defense Committee (HDC). The HDC is an organisation that aims to mobilise people to engage in non-violent resistance for freedom of movement and the evacuation of Israeli settlements in Hebron as a means to “end the occupation and all forms of colonialism and racism in Palestine”. 

Human rights defenders in the OPT are subjected to acts of harassment, restrictions on freedom of movement, stigmatisation, abductions, long periods of arbitrary detention usually under administrative detention orders, illegal searches of their homes and offices and killings. Many of the violations are state-sanctioned, or if not sanctioned at the highest levels of the Israeli political and military establishment, then condoned by the ongoing policy of impunity which permeates the military and judicial system in relation to the OPT.
