Room 8, UM students union

Join FRFI society in supporting calls for solidarity with Palestinian student prisoners and victory to the Palestinian resistance.

Around 340 Palestinian students are inside Israeli prisons.
Palestinian prisoners lead the struggle for liberation against Israeli apartheid and occupation. The Zionist regime uses political detention to intimidate and disrupt resistance—during student elections it targets representatives and activists.

Bir Zeit university student president Omar Kiswani was arrested on 7 March 2017 by armed, disguised occupation forces invading the campus. Kiswani spent 14 days on hunger strike and remains in detention under interrogation. Israeli forces continue to intimidate him and his family.
