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:
