22 January, NYC: Protest to free Mohammed al-Qeeq and all Palestinian prisoners

G4S Offices, NYC – 17 W 44th St, NYC
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/101226110260662/
Organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network


Mohammed Al-Qeeq, a 33-year-old journalist from Dura, has now been on hunger strike for over 50 days as medical experts warn of severe danger to his health. Held in administrative detention without charge or trial, Al-Qeeq launched a hunger strike on 25 November 2015. He is being held in Afula hospital and demanding his release; his lawyer reported that he is refusing medicines and at times water.

His struggle for freedom has sparked protests in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip and global demands for his immediate release.

G4S, the world’s largest firm company and second-biggest private employer, equips Israeli prisons and detention centers where 6,800 Palestinian political prisoners, including 660 administrative detainees, are held and tortured, as well as the occupation forces and infrastructure that routinely massacre Palestinians while holding millions under military rule.

Join us to answer a united appeal by Palestinian prisoners for escalated boycotts of G4S.

Demand G4S immediately end its contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces and checkpoints, and that Israel release al-Qeeq and all Palestinian prisoners.

Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
