RAMALLAH (PIC) — Imprisoned Hamas leader, Ibrahim Hamid, called for solidarity activities with the hunger striking prisoners to move beyond rallies and speeches to effective action, such pestering Western Embassies, especially those on good terms with the occupation, with information on the human rights violations of Palestinian detainees in occupation jails.

In his letter, published by his wife on her Facebook page, he called to activate the students because they are the most numerous, committed and organized, stressing the need to communicate with all human rights institutions, especially the Western ones, and with all the supportive groups, especially the intellectuals, media men, politicians and trade unionists.

He stressed on the prisoners’ right to enjoy their dignity while in detention, and called on Palestinians to support them in their battle against the occupier.

Hamid, the isolated prisoner in “Ashkelon” prison, added in his letter that since his arrest which coincided with capturing the Zionist soldier Shalit, the prisoners’ conditions have deteriorated sharply and they have become the targets of assassination within the cells of solitary confinement. Thus, the captives’ movement decided to recover their rights by leading a captives’ revolution through hunger striking which he considered a new promising opportunity which will end up with ending solitary confinement.

Furthermore, he said: “I was transferred to a cell with four surveillance cameras to be watched twenty-four hours, with neither Electricity nor clothes nor medical treatment thus the strike is our only way to regain our human rights.”
