**We have updated this event as it coincides with the week of action in Solidarity with Bilal Kayed and Palestinian Hunger Strikers**
SOLIDARITY WITH BILAL KAYED AND PALESTINIAN HUNGER STRIKERS
SOLIDARITY WITH THE PALESTINE
An open mic rally against the racist, apartheid state of Israel, and in solidairty with Palestinian political prisoners.
Bilal Kayed is now in his second month of hunger strike; on strike since 15 June, he is demanding his freedom from administrative detention, imprisonment without charge or trial. Kayed was ordered to six months’ administrative detention upon the expiration of his 14.5 year sentence in Israeli jails on 13 June 2016. A leader inside the prisons, he was one of the organizers of the 2012 collective Karameh hunger strike, in which thousands of Palestinian prisoners refused food for nearly one month against solitary confinement and denial of family visits.
This event is part of an international day of action on 25 July called by the Progressive Student Labor Front in Palestine. We join in this call to action and demand freedom for Bilal Kayed and his fellow Palestinian prisoners.
We will campaign outside Marks and Spencer’s flagship store because of the company’s historical links with the zionist movement, and its continuing economic ties with Israel.
