Tell your government:

• Two Palestinian prisoners, Anas Shadid and Ahmad Abu Fara, have been on hunger strike since 25 September – for 90 days – against “administrative detention,” Israeli imprisonment without charge or trial.
• Your government must demand the strikers’ immediate release and end all support for Israel’s political imprisonment and other crimes against Palestinians.
• Israel’s use of “administrative detention” is a universally-recognized violation of human rights and international law.
• The government must do more than criticize “administrative detention” or express concern, but should also take serious measures to end these violations.
