#PalHunger | Ex-captive Mazen Natshe: Prisoners will resume mass hunger strike

[ PIC 16/03/2013 – 04:46 PM ]

images_News_2013_03_16_natshe_300_0[1]AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The liberated captive and activist Mazen Jamal Natshe, 41, from al-Khalil, said that the prisoners inside the Israeli jails plan to step up their protest steps in April in protest at the escalation of the repressive measures against them.

Natshe told PIC’s correspondent that the Israeli prison administration has recently escalated its repressive measures against the prisoners.

After the death of detainee Arafat Jaradat, the prison administration was expected to calm the situation, but on the contrary, it launched a fierce campaign against the captives, mainly through escalating the raids into the prisoners’ rooms, isolating prisoners and preventing family visits, Natshe explained.

He has also pointed to the abusive measures taken by the Israeli prison administration against the hunger strikers, and said that the prison administration transfers to solitary confinement each prisoner who announces a hunger strike, in an attempt to prevent him from communicating with the outside world and to pressure him to retreat from his step.

He stressed that the captives’ leaders from all factions are pondering a new mass hunger strike if the prisoners’ legitimate demands are not met.

The liberated captive pointed out that the prisoners’ demands consist principally of implementing the terms of the agreement reached following the last al-Karama strike, represented mainly in releasing all the prisoners from solitary confinement, and allowing visits to the captives’ families from the Gaza Strip.

The prisoners also demand canceling the law of Shalit, represented in sanctions that have been imposed on prisoners after the capture of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit and which include stopping the education process inside the jails, preventing entry of Palestinian newspapers, and raising prices of materials and goods the prisoners buy from the canteen.

Natshe confirmed that the prisoners intend to launch a hunger strike next month if the Israeli authorities refuse to meet these demands.

He thanked and hailed the Palestinian people and the human rights, media, social and youth organizations for supporting the prisoners issue through the solidarity activities and events.
