sciencespo1Palestinian students from Al-Quds University, studying as part of an exchange program at SciencesPo in Paris, organized with fellow students a solidarity action with imprisoned Palestinian journalist, Mohammed al-Qeeq, now on his 87th day of hunger strike.

The students, who organize with the Progressive Student Labor Front in Palestine, posted signs, banners and videos about al-Qeeq’s struggle, his imprisonment without charge or trial under administrative detention, and the mass imprisonment of nearly 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners.

They distributed a petition, demanding al-Qeeq’s freedom, winning wide support and solidarity from fellow university students.
