Protest in Rome demands liberation for Palestinian prisoners


Dozens of activists and supporters of Palestine demonstrated at the Piazza di Montecitorio in Rome, Italy on 3 October in solidarity with Palestinian political prisoners, demanding their freedom. Organized by the Arab Palestinian Democratic Union (UDAP), the protest was addressed by Dalya Abu Aker, activist and the daughter of Nidal Abu Aker, imprisoned Palestinian jouranlist held without charge or trial, who recently ended a 40-day hunger strike against administrative detention.
