Mass hunger strike in all occupation jails to mark Prisoners’ Day

images_News_2013_04_17_prison-food_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, GAZA, (PIC)– Some 5,000 Palestinian captives in Israeli jails went on a one-day hunger strike on Wednesday to mark the Prisoners’ Day.

The prisoners refused breakfast as part of a final warning message to leaders of the Prison Service to meet their fair and legitimate demands and treat them as prisoners of war.

For its part, the Ministry of prisoners’ affairs confirmed that there are currently about 5 thousand Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli jails, including 1400 patient captives, 25 of whom suffer from cancer.

Wa’ed Society for prisoners and ex-prisoners demanded in a statement on Wednesday on the occasion of Palestinian Prisoners’ Day the Palestinian forces and factions to organize continuous activities in support of prisoners in Israeli jails.

It stressed that “the issue of prisoners should be on the top priorities of the Palestinian national action in all forums,” and called for making more Palestinian national efforts at all levels to liberate the prisoners, especially those who have served long terms.

For its part; Ahrar Center for prisoners’ studies asserted that the Palestinian prisoners’ issue cannot be subject to seasonal work, related only to Prisoners’ Day of each year.

Prisoners’ Day should be a day in which we celebrate our achievements for the prisoners’ interests during the year, the center said.

The human rights center called for preparing a national comprehensive strategic plan to activate the issue of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli jails, and to focus on activating the files of administrative detention files, detention of children and forms of torture.

“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.
