Hastings Palestine Solidarity Campaign
Newsletter   30 April 2017

Solidarity with Palestinian prisoners!
Over 1,500 Palestinians imprisoned by Israel have been taking part in the hunger strike led by Marwan Barghouthi since April 17 to protest the torture, ill treatment, and medical neglect of prisoners at the hands of Israeli authorities, as well as Israel's widespread use of administrative detention -- internment without trial or charges.

Please write to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, request that it urgently raises the hunger strike with Israel, and ends its violations of international law and human rights conventions in the treatment of Palestinian prisoners: Letter to FCO.

Over the past five decades, more than 800,000 Palestinians have been imprisoned or detained by Israel - equivalent to about 40 percent of the Palestinian territory's male population.
