On Monday evening activists from Nablus proceeded to Balata refugee camp from the solidarity tent in Nablus, to show their support for hunger striking detainee Yasser Alpedersawi. Yasser’s mother has been a constant presence in the protest tent set up when detainees launched their hunger strike on 24 April. On Monday Yasser was on his 26th day on hunger strike, protesting against his internment by Apartheid Israel without evidence or trial.
Activists marched in Balata refugee camp to show their support for all Palestinian prisoners and visited Yasser’s family. Imad Ishtewi, from Balata and an activist for prisoners, gave a speech stating Palestinians are united in their support for prisoners but this support should increase as prisoners faced greater terrorism and neglect at the hands of Apartheid Israel.
Please see SFP’s previous reports regarding the illegal policy of administrative detention, and it’s use by Apartheid Israel as a tool if terrorism against Palestinians.
SFP also encourages people to abide by the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Apartheid Israel. To find out how to boycott please click here.
In addition, we particularly ask that activists work towards actions related to the British/Dutch firm G4S, which supplies much of the prison infrastructure used by Apartheid Israel, including in Ofer. For more details on G4S and the Stop G4S campaign in the UK please click here.
