Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike for two days each week

[ PIC 21/03/2013 – 08:15 PM ]

images_News_2013_03_21_prison-food_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Sources from inside the Israeli jails reported that Palestinian captives in Ramon, Nafha and Eshel prisons will start a hunger strike for two days each week, in solidarity with the hunger striking captives.

The sources said in press statements on Thursday that the prisoners have taken this step “as a warning message to the prison administration” in protest against the non-implementation of the terms of the agreement signed following the hunger strike waged by the captive movement last April.

They pointed out that the conditions inside the jails have become tense and unstable due to the abusive procedures against the detainees by the prison administration which still refuses to meet the prisoners’ demands.

The Israeli prison administration in Ramon and Nafha detention centers has deprived prisoners from their families visit for a whole month because of their support and solidarity with the hunger striking captives.

For its part; al-Tadhamon Foundation for Human Rights confirmed in a statement that the prisoners in Ramon still suffer from medical neglect, in addition to the ongoing arbitrary measures against them.

“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.
