On Friday, Salah al-Khawaja, of the village of Ni’lin in Ramallah, will reach his 26th consecutive day refusing food in protest of his “administrative detention,” imprisonment without charge or trial. He launched his hunger strike in protest of the renewal of his administrative detention order only one day before his scheduled release.

Al-Khawaja was seized by Israeli occupation forces on July 23, 2017 and ordered to four months in “administrative detention,” imprisonment without charge or trial. These detention orders are indefinitely renewable. Palestinians have spent years at a time jailed under administrative detention orders ( samidoun.net/2017/12/two-palestinian-prisoners-on-hunger-strike-in-israeli-prisons).

Stand with al-Khawaja to demand that Israel release him, 462 other administrative detainees and all 6,198 Palestinian political prisoners (addameer.org/statistics), and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements (investigate.afsc.org/company/hp-incinvestigate.afsc.org/company/hewlett-packard-enterprise,investigate.afsc.org/company/dxc-technology-company).

Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP (bdsmovement.net/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.
