Suha Kayed, the sister of imprisoned Palestinian Bilal Kayed, on hunger strike since 14 June in protest of his administrative detention without charge or trial following the expiration of his 14.5 year sentence in Israeli prisons, has recorded two new videos, calling on Palestinians, Arabs and international seekers of justice to support her brother in his strike.
Kayed’s comrades in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Palestinian prisoners across political lines have been participating in escalating steps of protest within the prison, including hunger strikes, demanding his freedom. Kayed’s case is seen as threatening a dangerous precedent of imprisoning Palestinian prisoners indefinitely following the expiration of lengthy sentences. Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners are participating in hunger strike protest actions demanding Kayed’s freedom.
Around the world, protests, actions and events are being organized to demand Kayed’s release and the end of administrative detention. On 24-25 June, numerous international events raised the call for freedom for Kayed.
The videos are available in German (with English subtitles) and in Arabic (with English subtitles)
