Tuesday, April 17 – 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
George Square, Glasgow
On Palestinian prisoners day, Tuesday 17th of April, the Palestinian prisoners movement will launch the Karamah (Dignity) hunger strike. They will place the true oppressive nature of the Israeli state under the spotlight once again. In a courageous move, highlighting the steadfastness of Palestinian resistance to occupation, 1600 prisoners will embark on an indefinite hunger strike demanding their basic rights as political detainees.
The magnitude of the 1600 Palestinian prisoners embarking on the Karamah hunger strike must be met with a significant international response. This means mass mobilisations to question the impunity of the Israeli state and our own governments involvement.
As the resistance of the prisoners escalates, our actions in turn must escalate.
On the 17th April, we will begin the escalation by marching for the liberation of Palestine and the dignity of the hunger strikers.
The intifada that is stirring in the Zionist jails must resonate beyond the prison walls
This demo is called for by ‘We Are All Hana Shalabi’ supported by: students Pal Socs in Scotland, Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Friends of Al Aqsa Scotland, and the Glasgow Lebanese community
