Responding to the urgent call of Palestinian prisoners for support in the face of an escalation of violence and repression by the Occupation and the Israeli Prison Authority, solidarity activists in Vancouver – Coast Salish Territories will be engaging in a 24 hour fast and day of action.
There are currently 5750 Palestinian prisoners in the Occupation Jails, including 401 administrative detainees, 25 women and 164 children. All of these Palestinians are jailed for resisting the occupation!
Participate in the Fast! Pledge to fast from 9pm Monday August 17 to 9m Tuesday August 18 and collect donations for Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network from family and friends. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join the fast.
