On Palestinian Prisoner’s Day 2020, April 17, from all over the world we are raising our voices as one demanding international protection of Palestinian political prisoners and their immediate release!
Cramped together in small, overcrowded prison cells, 5,000 Palestinian prisoners are fearing their lives as covid-19 is spreading all over the world, as well in Palestine and into the Zionist occupation prisons. The prisoners receive poor medical care, if any, and are left without the necessary cleaning and sterilization supplies in order to prevent the spread of disease. This dreadful situation includes 180 minors and 700 people suffering from chronic illness.
At the same time, the Zionist forces keep on arresting Palestinians on a daily basis in order to oppress and humiliate the people, thus increasing the risk of a deadly covid-19 outbreak among Palestinians. This medical negligence and refusal to take the required protective measures against the spread of covid-19 highlights the brutal practices and colonial strategies against Palestinians by the zionist state of Israel.
Thus, defending Palestinian political prisoners and demanding their immediate release is not only a humanitarian necessity, it is also a political imperative for all concerned with justice in Palestine. Palestinian political prisoners represent the Palestinian resistance and the true leadership of the Palestinian liberation struggle. Their liberation is critical to the victory of the Palestinian people and the freedom of Palestine – from the river to the sea!
