Cape Town - Veteran anti-apartheid activist, Ahmed Kathrada, signed a declaration on Robben Island on Sunday calling for the release of imprisoned Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouthi and all other Palestinian political prisoners, SABC reported.
The event marks the official launch of the Free Marwan Barghouthi Campaign.
Barghouthi has been in an Israeli jail since 2002 where he is serving five life sentences for his role in the fight for liberation in Palestine.
Other signatories include Barghouthi's wife, Fadwa, and former Robben Island prisoner Simon Mkalipi.
The declaration will be circulated to civil organisations around the world before being submitted to the Israeli government, the public broadcaster reported.
