Pollard Activists Demonstrate at Peres-US Reps Meeting


A group of activists for the release of Jonathan Pollard demonstrated, Wednesday morning, outside President Shimon Peres's official Jerusalem residence as Peres met with 26 members of the United States Congress.

A number of the demonstrators managed to make contact with the representatives as they entered the grounds and asked them to work urgently for the immediate release of Pollard, who has been behind bars for 26 on a conviction for passing classified information from the U.S. to Israel.
