Protesters in Paris call for freedom for imprisoned Palestinian journalist al-Qeeq


On Saturday, 20 February, activists in Paris gathered at the Place d’Italie, calling for the freedom of Mohammed al-Qeeq – then on his 88th day of hunger strike – and all Palestinian prisoners.

Organized by CAPJPO-Europalestine, demonstrators set up an information table with Palestinian flags, informational leaflets, and information about Mohammed al-Qeeq and other Palestinian prisoners. Al-Qeeq is a Palestinian journalist currently on his 91st day of hunger strike, held in HaEmek hospital in Afula, demanding his freedom from Israeli administrative detention: imprisonment without charge or trial.

CAPJPO-EuroPalestine is organizing another protest this coming Saturday, 27 February, for freedom for al-Qeeq and his fellow 7000 Palestinian prisoners.
