Freedom or Death


Hana Shalabi is willing to die for justice.

by Stephen Lendman

On March 22, Hana Shalabi's 36th hunger strike day began. After examining her, Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-I) said she's in imminent danger of death.

Israel wants her to die. She requires immediate hospitalization. At PHR-I's request, she was sent to Meir Hospital on March 19 but not admitted. The same night, she was transferred back to Ramleh Prison Hospital. Healthcare there and in all Israeli prison facilities is an oxymoron. There's none worthy of the name.

Her doctor wasn't told she's back in prison until the next day. He and others deplore the appalling care she'll get in terms of quality, efficacy, and timeliness. Israel condemned Hana to death unless effective intervention prevents it.

A joint PHR-I, Addameer, Al Haq statement quoted Hana saying:

"To all the free and loyal Palestinian people, I direct my words to you--while I and all my brothers and sisters in the occupier's prisons are on hunger strike, we call on you to continue your solidarity and for the issue of prisoners to be on the highest priority list....I call on  foreign states to continue action in applying pressure (on Israel) towards the release of all our courageous prisoners."

The joint statement "expressed grave concern" for her health. Without proper care, she risks imminent death because of significant physical deterioration.
