#5MayPPSolidarity ▶ May 5: Mobilize in support of Palestinian political prisoners
GAZA, (PIC)– Dozens of ex-prisoners went on hunger strike in Gaza on Wednesday in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails who have been on hunger strike for 16 days.
Tayseer Al-Bardini, one of the ex-prisoners, told a press conference in the presence of other ex-inmates, who all wore similar T-shirts, that they decided to go on hunger strike in the hope to convince the world to act and pressure Israel into meeting the demands of hunger strikers.
The PIC reporter said that more than 50 ex-prisoners of various factions are involved in the hunger strike in which they pledged to continue until Israel acquiesced to the just demands of the prisoners.
They also pledged not to leave the sit-in tent and to consume only salt and water.
