During the months leading up to the destruction of Amona in February 2017, Honenu provided legal counsel to protesters. Honenu attorneys arrived at police stations to counsel detainees. Honenu’s staff filed complaints with the Police Investigation Unit on behalf of protesters who either suffered or witnessed police brutality. Staff members visited hospitalized protesters, recorded their testimonies, and documented their injuries for the purpose of filing complaints and claims. Protests continued after the destruction and so did Honenu’s counsel to detainees. See a partial listing of cases below.
