Berlin protest demands freedom for imprisoned Palestinian journalist al-Qeeq on 66th day of hunger strike


Demonstrators gathered at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on Friday, 29 January, to call for freedom for Palestinian prisoners, particularly Mohammed al-Qeeq, the Palestinian journalist imprisoned without charge or trial who has been on hunger strike for 66 days and is currently in critical condition; and Ahmad Manasrah, the 14-year-old Palestinian boy whose injury, imprisonment and interrogation were seen on video around the world.

Organized by the Palästinensicher Frauenverband in Deutschland (Palestinian Women’s Association in Germany), the protesters called for freedom for all Palestinian prisoners, denouncing the Israeli occupation and its system of administrative detention, military courts and mass political imprisonment over the Palestinian people.
