Hadarim prisoners plan to escalate solidarity with hunger strikers

Prisoners in Hadarim prison declared on September 24, 2012 that they would begin escalating solidarity actions with the prisoners on hunger strike.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society confirmed that prisoners confirmed in a visit with a PPS lawyer that they plan to return their meals once weekly and take further steps against the prison administration so long as it refuses to implement the agreement of May 2012 ending the mass hunger strike, in particular ending the continued isolation of Dirar Abu Sisi and Awad al-Saidi.

The prison administration has transferred several prisoners to Gilboa prison in recent days, including Bassam Abu Akar, Maher Younis, Nihad Sabih and Bilal Damra.
