#FreeBarghouti | Sit-in in Ramallah in solidarity with hunger striking prisoners

[ PIC 19/07/2013 – 01:48 PM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Families of Palestinian prisoners organized, with participation of several national and Islamic factions and liberated prisoners, a sit-in on Thursday in the center of Ramallah city in solidarity with the hunger striking prisoners in the Israeli jails.

The protestors demanded the Palestinian and Jordanian official authorities and all the humanitarian and human rights bodies to intervene immediately to save the lives of hunger striking prisoners before it is too late, and called for continuing the activities in support of detainees in the occupation jails.

Amin Shuman, coordinator of the High follow up Commission on the prisoners affairs in the occupation prisons, announced that the commission, in collaboration with other institutions and national and Islamic forces, will organize a series of events to activate the prisoners’ cause.

He noted that the events and activities in solidarity with prisoners in occupation jails staged in front of the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross in the West Bank will be moved to the city centers, “especially in light of the Jordanian and Palestinian captives’ ongoing hunger strike.”

For his part, liberated captive Fakhri Barghouti, who served dozens of years in the occupation prisons, called for taking serious steps to support the prisoners until they achieve their fair and legitimate demands.
