Activists for the release of Jonathan Pollard from American prison say that they are marking American Independence Day (July 4th) by protesting "American government hypocrisy".

Activists for freedom for Jonathan Pollard from prison in America protested what they describe as "American icons" in Jerusalem and plastered them with photos of Pollard in honor of the 4th of July, American Independence Day.

The activists said they are protesting American hypocrisy, which trumpets justice and equality as its highest values, yet continues the grossly disproportionate and unusually harsh sentence of the Jewish spy who served the Jewish State. Others convicted of similar offenses in the US have received far lighter sentences.

The activists plastered Pollard photos on the Freedom Statue in New York Square at the head of Agrippas Street. They also plastered them on the Freedom Bell in Gan HaPaamon in Jerusalem.
