#PalHunger #FreeSamer | A vigil in Buenos Aires in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners

BUENOS AIRES, (PIC)– Ahrar Center for Prisoners Studies and Human Rights organized, in coordination with Argentinean and Palestinian activists, a vigil in Argentina in solidarity with Palestinian hunger striking prisoners and MPs detained in Israeli jails.

Fuad Al Khuffash, the director of Ahrar Center, said that this vigil aims at creating a state of interaction and solidarity with the issue of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails and introducing to the international community one of the most important Palestinian issues.

The vigil took place in one of the streets of the city of Buenos Aires, where the solidarity activists raised photos of hunger striking prisoners and kidnapped MPs, and demanded the international community to intervene to stop the Israeli violations against the Palestinian rights.

Elizabeth Drapkina, a young activist and a plastic artist, said: “In Argentina, we did not know much about the Palestinian prisoners. I was dismayed by the news I heard through the social networking websites and I sympathized with this humanitarian issue and decided to defend it.”

This sit-in is the second to be organized by Ahrar Center during this month, after a first vigil that took place in Britain in front of the parliament in solidarity with the issue of the hunger strikers and the kidnapped MPs in Israeli jails.

“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.
