Join Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike for one day

Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli 
jails started a hunger strike on September 27th, 
2011. Every day, the more and more prisoners are 
joining. Their health is deteriorating due to the 
hunger strike, and prison authorities are not 
providing necessary medical checks.

The Palestinian prisoners have made several key 
demands, some of which are listed below:
    * End the abusive use of isolation;
    * End restrictions on University education in the prisons;
    * End the denial of books and newspapers;
    * End the shackling to and from meetings with lawyers and family members;
    * End the excessive use of fines as punishment;
    * And ultimately end all forms of collective 
punishment, including the refusal of family 
visits, night searches of prisoners’ cells, and 
the denial of basic health treatment.

For more info 

strike was declared in West Bank to take place on 
Wednesday October 12th, in solidarity with and 
support to the prisoners strike. Many sit-in 
tents were set up in different Palestinian cities. This week events:
    * Tuesday, 11/10/2011 protest in front of 
Ofer prison – Rally at 12 am-meeting point “Dwar 
Al sa’a) Ramallah’s city center- a call for 
lawyers to boycott all military courts on the same day.
    * Wednesday, 12/10/2011 general strike in all Palestinian cities.
    * On Friday, 14/10/2011 public demos in all cities.
    * Daily sit-ins at the Red Cross centers (start at 11am)

If you can’t join those actions, try to organize 
ones in your home country. In Addition, here is a 
simple action you can take to support: Hunger 
strike for one day. Wednesday 12.10.2011.

All freedom supporters around the world are 
called to join the prisoners with one day hunger 
strike, on Wednesday October 12th when they will 
have entered their 16th day of hunger strike.

If you are joining, declare it, this will be one 
way that your voice and support might reach the 
prisoners and their families and give them moral 
support, write on your Facebook wall, twitter 
feed, blog or wherever you wish “On 12.10.11, I 
will be on hunger strike in support of 
Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike since September, 27th"
