LOBBY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN JERUSALEM -

CAMPAIGN TO END ID-CARD CONFISCATION
Campaign Agenda (18-3-1999)

----------------------------------------------------------

CAMPAIGN TO END ID-CARD CONFISCATION
The following is the campaign agenda to be implemented through an ever 
increasing network of organizations and activists.  The purpose of this campaign 
is to apply pressure on the Israeli court as it prepares to rule on the legality 
of Jerusalem ID card confiscation in the upcoming High Court decision scheduled 
for April 22. In order to most effectively lobby the Israeli court, the Lobby 
for Human Rights in Jerusalem, in partnership with a growing number of human 
rights organizations (see list below), has organized actions on both the legal 
and the popular front.  

CAMPAIGN AGENDA

A.  Grass-roots Activities

1.   Letter Writing Campaign 
-A sample letter will be circulated through activist and NGO e-mail networks to 
the general public, encouraging them to write the Israeli justices. The sample 
letter should be ready for dissemination by early next week.
-The sample letter will also accompany the PHRM publication on the UN Committee 
on Social, Economic, and Cultural Rights. The publication will be broadly 
disseminated to the US congress, lobby groups, consulates, etc. urging 
recipients to write Israeli officials on the issue of ID card confiscation.

2.   Media Campaign
-all participating organizations are encouraged to promote personal stories of 
ID card confiscation and the April 22 decision into the press. ACRI, B'tselem, 
JCW will put special efforts into contacting the international press.

3.   Demonstration New Gate Park on April 14  
-the main demonstration of the campaign will be held on Wednesday, 2-4pm, at the 
Old City New Gate Park.  Israeli and Palestinian activist groups are now 
mobilizing broad sectors of the public, including extending the invitation to 
PLC and Knesset members.
-the Lobby will also design and distribute a campaign sticker/flyer to promote 
the issue of ID card confiscation and publicize the April 14 Demonstration.

4.   Vigil at Israeli Supreme Court (April 22)
-a vigil/demonstration will be made at the Israeli Supreme Court the day of the 
court hearing. Details will be clarified by the Campaign Sub-Committee.

5.   Press Conference (April 22)
-The press conference with the international law delegation (described below)  
will be held the day of the High Court decision at al-Hakawati theater. Details 
of this press conference are subject to change and will be followed up by the 
campaign sub-committee.


B.  Legal Advocacy

1.   Delegation of Legal Experts  
-a delegation of international law experts will be brought in to sit in on the 
High Court decision, April 22.  They will also visit various Israeli and 
Palestinian officials and ministries.
-International and domestic lawyers and judges will be sent an informational 
package, including a translation of the original petition that induced the 
present High Court decision.  They will be asked to write an Amicus Curaie or 
legal briefing, urging the Israeli justices to rule against the policy of ID 
card confiscation.
