[ PIC 09/05/2012 – 03:42 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Dozens of activists and families of the two detainees Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh have closed the main road in front of the presidential headquarters in Ramallah, demanding the PA president Mahmoud Abbas to work immediately for their sons’ release who went on hunger strike since 71 days.

The activists sat down on the ground, carrying the pictures of detainees and banners calling on the PA to press on the occupation for the prisoners’ release and to stop all forms of security coordination with the occupation.

The Activists closed the street leading to the center of Ramallah, blocking the passage of hundreds of vehicles, and demanding the Palestinian people to carry on with their support for their striking prisoners who are dying in occupation prisons.

Halahleh’s father said that the authority’s effort at the international level are important but it came too late as it has no effects until the moment, adding that his son who went on hunger strike protesting against his administrative detention is facing death while the official actions abroad are so slow.

Dozens of activists, who had joined the prisoners’ families, called on the PA to restore resistance and to pressure the occupation to release the prisoners and called on the shops and restaurants in Ramallah to close their doors in solidarity with the striking prisoners in occupation prisons since at least 22 days.
