Join solidarity for hunger striking political prisoners

Over 1500 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails have been on a hunger strike since 17 April – demanding an end to administrative detention and basic rights within prisons.

As they take this costly nonviolent action – show your solidarity!  Join the joint #saltwater challenge and (if you can) join a 1 day fast on May 15.

Solidarity for the strike for freedom and dignity is pouring in from around the world. There are street marches and vigils, solidarity fasts by many including religious leaders.  The #saltwaterchallenge is being taken up by Irish politicians, human rights groups such as Amnesty, superstars (Mohammed Assaf and Michael McLaughlin for example) and many many everyday people.

Now we need to show that there are also thousands of Australians who support Palestinian’s call for freedom and dignity!

The 15 May is the day to commemorate the Nakba, the catastrophe that has been waged against Palestinians from 1948 until today.  This 15 May – show your solidarity!

Take the #saltwater challenge – drink a glass of salty water.

And if you can – join the #dignitystrike – by fasting on May 15.

Post a photo/short video both on the APAN facebook event page (where we’ve posted one video already) and on your own social media, tagging APANapan and tag #saltwaterchallenge.
