#ReleaseIssawi | Protesters trying to close the UN building in Ramallah

[ PIC 18/02/2013 – 08:41 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Young activists and students at Birzeit University tried on Monday morning to close the United Nations headquarters in the city of Ramallah, in protest at the “international silence regarding the hunger striking prisoners’ issue.”

Dozens of young men gathered this morning outside the building, located in the area of Ain Munjid in Ramallah, and tried to close it. They were carrying banners condemning the international silence regarding the issue of hunger striking prisoners, especially that some of them have been suffering very critical health condition.

Palestinian policemen intervened and prevented the demonstrators from closing the UN building.

“This event aims to put more pressure on the international community, which stands silent in the face of the Israeli practices against the prisoners, especially the hunger strikers,” one of the activists said.

He added that the goal of such activities, including the closure of the European police building, is to pressure these organizations working in Palestine to act and intervene in order to lift the Israeli injustice imposed on the Palestinian captives.

“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.
