On the evening of Tuesday 24 June Arab Organisation for Human Rights (UK) and Palestine Solidarity Campaign are holding a joint meeting in central London:
Israel’s “administrative detention” policy and the Plight of Palestinians on Hunger Strike
Addressing the dire plight of nearly 200 Palestinians in Israeli jails on hunger strike (for over 50 days), protesting against their detention without charge or trial under Israel’s “administrative detention” policy. Shackled, tortured (including sexual), and poor treatment, many are on the verge of death.
This is a call to the international community to give voice to the voiceless and victims of human rights abuses in Israeli jails.
