Join Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike for one day
Posted by abirkopty, October 10, 2011

Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails started a hunger strike on September 27th, 2011. Every day, the more and more prisoners are joining. Their health is deteriorating due to the hunger strike, and prison authorities are not providing necessary medical checks.
The Palestinian prisoners have made several key demands, some of which are listed below:

1.End the abusive use of isolation;
2.End restrictions on University education in the prisons;
3.End the denial of books and newspapers;
4.End the shackling to and from meetings with lawyers and family members;
5.End the excessive use of fines as punishment;
6.And ultimately end all forms of collective punishment, including the refusal of family visits, night searches of prisoners� cells, and the denial of basic health treatment.
