Solidarity hunger strike continues at American University in Washington, DC

Students at American University in Washington, DC continued their open-ended solidarity hunger strike with Palestinian prisoners over the weekend, planning to continue to set up a solidarity fast in the Quad over the week to come. The students have set up a facebook page for promotion and solidarity:

The action was organized by Students for Justice in Palestine at American University, a student group that works to build solidarity for Palestinian rights, and called for freedom for hunger strikers Samer al-Barq, Hassan Safadi and Ayman Sharawna. The students also encouraged supporters to write to Israeli officials urging their release.
