Please join us to raise awareness about Palestinian political prisoners in military custody in Israeli jails, There has been a call for all prisoners to be on hunger strike on April 17th, Palestinian Political Prisoners Day. They will join fellow prisoners already on hunger strike such as Samer Issawi (now approaching 250 days on hunger strike)
Several of us will be fasting for 24 hours in solidarity with the prisoners, and collecting sponsorship for Medical Aid for Palestinians. We will be at Bonn Square from 11.30-2.30pm, and hope that enough supporters will join us so that leaflets can be given out and information shared with the public for the whole of the time.
We will also be supported for an hour by Oxford Women in Black (time to be confirmed)
We welcome any support you can give – from joining us in the fast (either at Bonn Square or privately), supporting us by handing out leaflets, joining the Women in Black vigil, or donating to edical Aid for Palestinians in support of our fast.
More information to follow. In the meantime do contact us to let us know how you can help. Pam Parsons firstname.lastname@example.org
