A message from Mordechai Vanunu

Jun 6, 2008, 00:22

I am Mordechai Vanunu, the man who told the truth about Israel's Nuclear Weapons. Program in 1986 and paid with 18 years of my life in Israel Prison . I was released in April 2004, but Israel denied me my human rights of free speech and freedom of movement -- not allowed to leave since 1986, until now 2008.

On July 8, 2008, I will return to court to appeal a new 6 months prison sentence for speaking to foreign media since my release 2004,

I am asking the media to report on my case and on the efforts of Norwegian lawyers and citizens to grant me asylum.

Israel claims I still have a secret about their underground nuclear plant -- a place I have not been to in twenty-three years and international atomic energy inspectors never have.

I said all I knew about Israel's Nuclear Weapons Programs in 1986, because the voice of my conscience wanted to avoid a nuclear war. Since 2004, I have spoken with thousands of tourists and pilgrims in east Jerusalem and taped hours of video available on the World Wide Web.

Israel was founded contingent on upholding the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I am asking the world to demand they honor it and not only in this case,

Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country. --Article 13-2.

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. --Article 19.
