Hasan Karajah


Mr Hasan Karajah is a prominent human rights defender who works on youth campaigns with Stop the Wall Movement, an organisation which peacefully advocates against the presence and expansion of the Wall, as well as defending prisoners' rights.

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. In some instances Israeli settlers have also been the perpetrators of violence against human rights defenders.
