Free al-Qeeq, call London demonstrators in support of hunger striking Palestinian journalist


Protesters in London demanded the immediate release of imprisoned Palestinian journalist Mohammed al-Qeeq as he lay in hospital in critical condition on his 86th day of hunger strike in protest of his imprisonment without charge or trial. Demonstrators gathered outside the Israeli Embassy in London in a protest organized by the Palestinian Forum in Britain on Thursday, 18 February.

The protesters called for building stronger solidarity in Europe and internationally with al-Qeeq and all Palestinian prisoners, and called on the European governments to take a real position and confront the Israeli occupation, and demand it release Mohammed al-Qeeq and end administrative detention without charge or trial.
