About Ahmad Sa’adat: Ahmad Sa’adat is the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In 2002, Sa’adat was imprisoned by the Palestinian Authority and later kidnapped by the Israeli military from the PA prison and held in Israeli prison. Sa’adat is a leading figure in the prisoners’ movement and hunger strikes in Zionist jails.

“Wherever I am, I will continue to fight.” – Ahmad Sa’adat

About Georges Abdallah: Georges Abdallah is a Lebanese revolutionary communist involved in the Palestinian liberation struggle who has been jailed since 1984 in France. Eligible for release since 1999, the French judiciary accepted his release on several occasions, but each time it was prevented by the United States and Israel. When Palestinian prisoners go on hunger strike, Abdallah refuses meals in prison in France.

Info:

Om Ahmad Sa’adat: Er generalsekretær for PFLP – Folkefronten til Palæstinas Befrielse. Sa’adat blev i 2002 fængslet af det palæstinensiske selvstyre og senere kidnappet fra selvstyrefængslet af israelsk militær og sat i israelsk fængsel, anklaget for terrorisme. Sa’adat er en ledende skikkelse i de mange fangeoprør og sultestrejker i zionismens fængsler.

Citat Ahmad Sa’adat: ”Hvor jeg end er, vil jeg fortsætte med at kæmpe”

Om George Abdallah: Er libanesisk revolutionær kommunist. Har siddet i fængsel i Frankrig siden 1984 – på grund af sin deltagelse i den palæstinensiske befrielseskamp. I 1999 og flere gange siden åbnede den franske stat op for hans løsladelse, men hver gang blev det forhindret gennem pres fra USA og Israel. Når palæstinensiske fanger går i sultestrejke, nægter Abdallah ar indtage føde i fængslet i Frankrig.
