Join us on the streets of Manchester in solidarity with Palestine, to demand the release of prisoners locked up by Israel and to build the boycott!
Responding to the Samidoun call for action, we stand with the six hunger strikers and for the release of all political prisoners. As imperialism continues to back the Zionist state, we also demand the release of Issam Hijjawi, imprisoned by the British state and Georges Abdallah, locked up for four decades in a French jail.
Victory to the Palestinian resistance!
Free all political prisoners!
Isolate the Zionist state! 🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸

There are currently six Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails on open hunger strike, demanding their release from Israeli imprisonment without charge or trial under “administrative detention” orders. Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner demands their immediate release, an end to the policy of administrative detention, and freedom for all Palestinian prisoners.
Ghadanfar Abu Atwan has been on hunger strike for 40 days to demand his freedom; he is joined by Khader Adnan, former long-time hunger striker, who has been on hunger strike for 15 days, as well as Amer al-Shami and Yousef al-Amer, on hunger strike for 14 days, and Mohammed Masalmeh and Sheikh Jamal al-Tawil, on hunger strike for 11 days. Al-Tawil’s strike demands the release of his daughter, Bushra al-Tawil, from administrative detention, as well as his release.
