[ PIC 22/12/2012 – 10:00 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian human rights organizations called on Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to go on a one-day hunger strike on Monday, in solidarity with the hunger striking Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli jails.

The one-day hunger strike was called for by the Association of Prisoners and Ex-prisoners, the Ahrar Center for Studies, the Electronic Campaign for the Support of Prisoners, Al-Quds Network and the Palestinian Center for the Defense of Prisoners, in a press statement on Sunday, pointing out that there are more than four thousand Palestinian captives held in the occupation jails.

The statement called for “practically and effectively” supporting the prisoners, noting that this “hunger strike will be launched with popular, governmental and international participation, and in continuation of the international solidarity campaign which has been launched via social networking sites.”

“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.
