31/05/14: Army attack demonstration in support of hunger strikers in Al-Aroub refugee camp, Hebron

On Saturday 31 May members of SFP Hebron joined a demonstration in support of hunger striking Palestinian detainees, now on their 38th day with only water and salt. The demonstration took place in Al-Aroub refugee camp near Hebron, and the Army violently attacked protesters firing volleys of tear gas and sound grenades. A number were injured and Majed Al Titi was detained.

On 24 April a mass hunger strike was launched by Palestinian prisoners held under what is known as “administrative detention”. This is when Palestinians are held with no charge for up to 6 months before they are required to appear before a Judge. These orders can then be renewed indefinitely and regularly cite secret evidence that they and their lawyers have no access to.

The hunger strike can be traced back to May 2012 when an agreement was reached between the Israeli Prison Service and representatives of the prisoners, which brought an end to a mass hunger strike involving approximately 2,000 political prisoners. As part of this agreement Israel agreed to limit its use of administrative detention to only exceptional circumstances. However, since then Israel has reneged on the agreement and has continued to use administrative detention on a systematic basis leaving the detainees with little choice but to launch a fresh strike.
 
SFP will continue to support all prisoners and their families. SFP is clear that we will not wait for negotiations to bring the prisoners back home but will work towards bringing them home ourselves. We ask all those that believe in justice to help in that mission and abide by the request for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Apartheid Israel. 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.
