Bilal Kayed, one of 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners held by Israel, had been scheduled for years to be released on June 13, the end of a 14 1/2-year sentence by an Israeli military court in the occupied West Bank.
Instead, on the morning his family and friends planned to welcome him home, he was given an administrative detention order, a decree by an Israeli military commander sentencing him to six more months’ imprisonment, without charge or trial and subject to indefinite renewal.
Now one of 715 Palestinian administrative detainees in Israeli prisons, Bilal launched a hunger strike on June 15 to demand his freedom.
Stand with Bilal on his 53rd day of hunger strike to demand that Israel release him, other administrative detainees, and all Palestinian politicial prisoners immediately, and that occupation profiteer G4S end its contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints now.
Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
