The following video/poem in solidarity with hunger striking Palestinian prisoner was created by Palestinian poet Rafeef Ziadah:

Hana Shalabi is a Palestinian political prisoner. She was released from over two years in administrative detention on 18 October 2011, as part of the prisoner exchange deal. She was re-arrested less than four months later on 16 February 2012, and immediately began a hunger strike in protest of her detention.
