-Hunger striking is a right of prisoners to protest deplorable inhumane conditions.
Monday will be the eighth day of a mass hunger strike by over 1600 Palestinian political prisoners being held under deplorable conditions in Israeli prisons. Bring a banner of support for the Palestinian prisons on hunger strike as well as for the detainees in the NW Detention Center in Tacoma–the largest immigration prison in our region.
At the NW Detention Center, several hundred immigrant detainees are also on hunger strike for basic human rights. We stand with both groups of prisoners to demand human rights and justice.
