BDS Galiza and fellow organizers for Palestine are organizing an action to support imprisoned Palestinians on hunger strike since 17 April.
The action will ake place in front of the Parliament at 7 pm. This coincides with the approval of an institutional statement in support of Palestine. The action will end with the delivery of a statement to the Foreign Office calling upon it to intervene in support of the prisoners. We urge you to join in the action and spread the word.
We also urge you to join in the symbolic #SaltWaterChallenge, drinking a glass of water with salt like the striking prisoners, in solidarity with the hunger strike.
This 17 April, over 1500 Palestinian prisoners launched a hunger strike to demand their basic rights, and as a form of resistance to the inhumane system of colonial occupation of the Israeli military that aims to destroy the will of the prisoners and the nation to which they belong.
Long live the Palestinian prisoners! Free Palestine!
