URGENT ACTION: FREE All Palestinian Political Prisoners Now!

Al-Awda, The Palestine Right To Return Coalition and The Global Campaign for Palestinian Political Prisoners call on all people of conscience to take immediate action to help save the lives of all Palestinian political prisoners including those on hunger strike!

The Palestinian hunger strikers have been detained by Israeli authorities without any charge whatsoever, and some are already in critical condition with vision impairment, vomiting blood and lapsing in and out of consciousness.

The Israeli occupation authorities and courts continue to detain Palestinians under the "Emergency Law of 1945", which was in force during the British Mandate of Palestine. This "law", which violates international law, allows the Zionist authorities to detain Palestinians without trial or providing reason, and to repeatedly extend the term of detention. The Israeli authorities have also ratified the Unlawful Combatant Law of 2000, which allows the occupation state to detain Palestinians without charge or disclosure of the term of detention. There are currently approximately 200 Palestinian administrative detainees. The current mass hunger strikers are protesting prison conditions and administrative detention.


Please join the voices and support around the world to save the hunger strikers and demand their immediate release from prison!

Sign this petition to US President Barack Obama, voice your concern and demand that the US administration intervene for the immediate release of all the current hunger strikers, all administrative detainees, and Palestinian political prisoners including children.

Thank you for your support!
