Audio interview: Palestinian prisoners’ movement declares plans for hunger strike to resist repression

On Tuesday, 5 September, Charlotte Kates, international coordinator of Samidoun, spoke with Salaamedia, based in South Africa, about the current situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails. Specifically, the Palestinian prisoners’ movement has called for a collective open hunger strike launching on Thursday, 14 September against the latest attacks on prisoners’ living conditions by openly far-right Zionist racist minister Itamar Ben Gvir: limiting family visits to once every two months.

In the interview, Kates discusses the current situation of Palestinian prisoners, the long-term restrictions and repression targeting them inside the prisons, and prisoners currently on hunger strike against administrative detention, imprisonment without charge or trial.
