On February 20 the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) issued an "Urgent Call for Action," saying:
"We call upon you to exert all possible influence and pressure on the Israeli Authorities to immediately release detainee Khader Adnan, whose life is in immediate danger as he has been on a hunger strike for the past 64 days."
"For the past decades Israel has applied the procedure of administrative detention on a large scale, systematically imprisoning thousands of Palestinians, as a tool of political oppression. This is a grave violation of the fourth Geneva Convention as well as the Convention on Civil and Political Rights, and the Convention Against Torture."
"It is time to act. Tomorrow might be too late."
A Final Comment
Outspoken against injustice, David Rovics is an activist song writer. His most recent one honors Adnan. Titled "Khader Adnan, Bobby Sands," its lyrics are as follows:
"Khader Adnan grew up near Jenin City
You could say he was a product of his time
Ever since he was a kid he'd get arrested
Though he was never charged with any crime
Spending half his life in prison
A life lived like so many of his friends
Arbitrary and indefinite detention
Never knowing if your jail time would end
Khader Adnan was arrested last December
Again he wasn't told the reason why
