Participants raised posters demanding the immediate release of Samer Al-Issawi, a Jerusalemite, who has been on hunger strike for 241 days.

They also asked for releasing all prisoners especially those on hunger strike from Israeli occupation jails.

Nasser Qaws, the director of the Palestinian prisoner’s society in Jerusalem, said that the inhabitants insisted on staging their sit-in near the American consulate despite the Israeli occupation authority’s objections.

“We don’t need a permit from occupation to protest and demand our legitimate rights,” he added.

For her part, Shireen, Samer’s sister and a lawyer, said that the protestors were demanding release of all 4700 Palestinian prisoners.

She said that her brother was held in Kaplan hospital in a very serious condition.

“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.
