Join MacSUPER this Tuesday to learn about the recent Palestinian Prisoners’ Hunger Strike.

Starting Monday, April 17th, the Palestinian Prisoners Day, about 1500 Palestinian political prisoners held in Israeli prisons launched a mass, open-ended hunger strike. The hunger strike aims to press for basic rights and call attention to the ever-worsening humanitarian conditions inside Israeli prisons, and prisoners involved come from various political backgrounds and affiliations.

We will be discussing the situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons as well as the demands that they’re asking for after this strike.
