On March 24, Mohammed Alaqimah will reach the 28th day of an open strike against his “administrative detention” – arbitrary internment without charge or trial – by Israel.

Mohammed, a 27-year-old husband and father of two from the village of Barta’a, near Jenin in the West Bank, was captured by Israeli occupation forces at a checkpoint on August 16.

His “administrative detention” order, issued by an Israeli military commander using “secret evidence” and subject to indefinite extensions, has already been renewed three times.

Mohammed launched an earlier hunger strike on December 26 before suspending it on January 3 amid rumors that his detention would not be renewed.

Stand with Mohammed to demand that Israel release him, 530 other “administrative detainees,” and all 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners immediately, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements now.

Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over the companies’ support for Israeli crimes.

Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
