17 October 2011

Sunday 16 October: Palestinian solidarity activists in Berlin today held a demonstration in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

In front of the Brandenburg Gate in central Berlin, protestors displayed banners and chanted in support of the hundreds of Palestinian prisoners who are now entering their third week of hunger strike, in protest at the inhumane and illegal conditions they are subject to in Israeli jails.

Amongst the demonstrators was PSP organiser and member of Beit Ommar’s popular committee, Mousa Abu Maria, who is currently on a European speaking tour.

The protesters called for the release of all Palestinian political prisoners being held by Israel, and an end to the occupation.
