We stand in full solidarity with Dr. Issam Hijjawi Bassalat and the Irish Republican prisoners, who have started a hunger strike on 16 September as protest against the isolation of Dr. Hijjawi Bassalat by the prison authorities.
Dr. Hijjawi Bassalat, who is a prominent Palestinian community leader in Scotland, was arrested together with nine Irish republicans by the British MI5, the Irish Gardaí, Police Scotland, London’s Metropolitan Police, and over 500 officers of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in the so-called “Operation Arbacia.” We demand the freedom of all political prisoners in Palestine and Ireland, and call upon their supporters to organize solidarity actions.
Join us to hear from speakers:
* Stephen Murney of Saoradh, former Republican political prisoner
* Yousef Qandeel, Palestinian community organizer in London
* Micheáilín Butler, Irish diaspora organizer and activist
Organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
