Saturday 24 March, Glasgow
It took almost 50 days for Khader Adnan’s hunger strike to receive the limited coverage it received here in the UK and we must take the streets of Glasgow to show that we will not accept or be party to this wall of silence that we will not let Hana and the others die in silence.
The BBC has a woeful record in covering the Palestinian issue and we will marching down to the BBC building to hand-in a letter of complaint and an appeal to them and all media outlets to give this story the coverage it deserves.
Students in Scotland led the way in calling for a Global Hunger Strike day of action on Friday 16th March, which saw hundreds worldwide fasting for one day in solidarity.
To keep the momentum and to do our very best to raise awareness students will be joining the rolling hunger strike called by Glasgow University Palestine Society which began on Saturday 17th March. One person has been fasting for 24 hours to be replaced by someone else the next day and will continue as long as Hana Shalabi remains on hunger strike. Saturday’s demonstration will also to be to mark week #1.
Silence is complicity, we refuse to be silent, join us and help make the message from Scotland loud and clear:
“No to arbitrary detention, Freedom for Hana Shalabi, Freedom for all the prisoners, Freedom for Palestine
