#PalHunger | 11 students go on hunger strike in solidarity with prisoners

GAZA (PIC)– In solidarity with the prisoners who have launched “The Empty Stomachs Battle” since 23 days in the occupation jails against the occupation’s repressive measures, 11 students, who are activists in the Islamic bloc in the Gaza Strip’s universities and colleges, have launched an open hunger strike since Thursday 10th May until meeting all the prisoners’ demands.

Mohannad Haddad, one of the hunger strikers, told PIC reporter that launching this strike aims at supporting the prisoners in their battle against the occupier, stressing that they will not break their hunger strike until all the legitimate demands of the prisoners are met.

He also stressed that all the Palestinians sympathize with the prisoners in occupation jails, and that supporting the prisoners and their cause is a religious and a national duty of every Palestinian, wherever he is, noting that “the brave prisoners are paying their youth and their lives to defend their country and their cause and to defend the dignity of all the nation. Thus, without the prisoners and the martyrs, there won’t be a Palestinian cause, as Haddad stated.

He called on “everyone to keep on supporting the prisoners and participating in activities in solidarity with their steadfastness in order to achieve their just demands, especially after the occupation’s escalation of its repressive measures against the prisoners through depriving the strikers of visits, imposing heavy fines on them and transferring some of them to solitary confinement in an attempt to dissuade them from their strike.”

The Islamic bloc daily organizes several events in Gaza’s universities, colleges and schools in solidarity with the prisoners in the occupation’s jails.
