  Muhammad Allan regains consciousness, pledges to continue hunger strike


Muhammad Allan 
hunger-striking Palestinian lawyer held in administrative detention 
without charge or trial, has regained consciousness and is dedicated to 
continuing his hunger strike after 64 days, reported Addameer Prisoner 
Support and Human Rights Association 

Doctors at Barzilai Hospital 
<http://www.maannews.net/Content.aspx?id=793134> have ended sedation of 
Allan as well as the use of a ventilator, and he can communicate with 
people around them. He has been visited by a Red Cross doctor, but has 
not been permitted to visit with his lawyer as of yet.

The news comes as members of the Palestinian Bar Association, the 
Palestinian Prisoners’ Society and other Palestinian legal organizations 
have pledged to boycott Israeli military courts on Wednesday, 19 August, 
in protest of the continued detention of Allan and demanding his release.

Meanwhile, the Arab Lawyers Union announced that on Monday, 24 August, 
at 11 AM, lawyers in all states that are part of the ALU will pause work 
in front of the courts for a period of one hour in solidarity with 
Palestinian prisoners and demanding the freedom of fellow lawyer, 
Muhammad Allan. All Arab countries’ bar associations are members of the ALU.
