Children of Gaza Held a Candlelight Vigil in Solidarity with Detainees | #PalHunger

April 29, 2012 – Al Resalah

GAZA ( — Dozens of children of Gaza demonstrated yesterday in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strikers, who had been protesting the inhumane violations of the Israeli Prison Service.

The children held a candlelight vigil protesting the miserable life conditions, under which the detainees live. The demonstrators called on the international world to intervene to leash the Israeli violations.

“I came in here to light a candle, through which the world would recognise the miserable life of our detainees,” Yousef Al-Halabi, 12 years old, said in the vigil. ” I also want to uncloak the darkness Gaza has been living in,” the child added.

The child said that he is following the news of the Palestinian detainees and their miserable life. “My father came to take part in the demo, too,” the child said.

Being in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners and adopting their cause is a must for us all, al-Halabi added, and all Palestinians must be their rock. He called them to take part in the events held to support the prisoners.

The Palestinian prisoners have  so far been hunger striking for 13 days, protesting the Israeli Prison Service violations.
