      Demonstration for Jonathan Pollard Sunday at US Embassy

      A demonstration on behalf of the release of Jonathan Pollard has been scheduled for Sunday at 6:00 p.m., in front of the American embassy in Tel Aviv. Pollard is in his 29th year of a life sentence for passing classified information from the U.S. to Israel.

      Organizers said, Friday, that justice and humanity dictate Pollard's release, adding that it should not be tied to any other issue. They added that only a show of numbers in strength at the Pollard demo will send the right message to the American administration and to the government of Israel. Women in Green for Israel's Tomorrow said, "This is the first official Pollard demo in front of the US Embassy. Your presence is needed to ensure that, with G-d’s help, it will also be the last."
