London joins Europe-wide solidarity hunger strike

Several cities around the world launched a collective 24-hour hunger strike today in solidarity with some 1,600 Palestinian political prisoners who began a mass hunger strike on 17 April to press for basic rights

London, Washington DC, Paris, Sydney, Dublin, Lyon, Nimes and Albertville have all joined the global solidarity action.

Hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners are demanding basic human rights, including an end to the denial of family visits, proper healthcare and medical treatment, the right to access distance higher education and an end to solitary confinement and administrative detention, imprisonment without charge or trial.
