Global support for Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike

The hunger strike that more than 1,500 Palestinian prisoners began last month continues amid protests in Palestine (see here and here) and solidarity actions all around the world. For May Day, the hunger strikers released a statement detailing the class character of the Palestinians protests issuing a call for solidarity for all workers around the world to take a class conscious stance in support of the hunger strikers. The Democracy and Workers’ Rights Centre in Palestine also issued a call to workers globally to support the demands of the hunger strikers. This hunger strike is likely to continue until Al-Nakba Day, that Israel has already banned within its borders. Events for Al-Nakba Day will be held throughout the world, including Melbourne, Australia.
