Solidarity with Palestinian Hunger Strikers


Their struggle for justice has gotten worldwide attention.

by Stephen Lendman

Courage comes in many forms. Perhaps none stand out more than willingness to die for justice.

An estimated 2,500 Palestinian detainees began open-ended hunger strikes on April 17 - Palestine Prisoners Day. Others haven't eaten much longer. 

Some are perilously close to death. On May 5, Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh refused food for the 68th day. A previous article described their grave condition. Six others are also imperiled.

On May 4, Al-Haq reported on Hasan Zahi Safadi. He's been imprisoned uncharged since June 29, 2011. May 5 marked his 60th hunger striking day. Family members are denied permission to see him.

His brother Fou'ad said Hasan was held 55 days at al-Jalama interrogation center. Israel Prison Service (IPS) authorities then transferred him to Magiddo Prison. He joined other strikers in protest. IPS moved him from one facility to another. He spent much time in punitive isolation.
