#PalHunger | 25 prisoners in Etzion Prison go on hunger strike in protest at their conditions

MEMO | June 29, 2012

25 prisoners have gone on hunger strike due to their food rations being reduced by the Israeli authorities.

Palestinian prisoners in Israel’s Etzion Prison started an open hunger strike on Wednesday in protest at the conditions of their detention.According to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club, 25 prisoners have gone on hunger strike because their food rations have been reduced by the Israeli authorities, they are treated very badly by their guards and their break time has been cut to 30 minutes a day.

A press release from the prisoners’ club also claimed that the authorities are still using solitary confinement as a punishment for Palestinians, without any justification. Trials have also been delayed due to overcrowding in the courts, meaning that prisoners are being held on remand in very poor conditions.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
