PFLP: Arrests of our leaders will not deter us from continuing resistance

PRESS RELEASE
PFLP

khalidaj2-400-x-265

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine confirmed that the Zionist occupation forces launched a pre-dawn campaign of raids across the occupied West Bank of Palestine on Sunday, arresting a number of leaders and activists of the Front, led by the Palestinian Legislative Council member Khalida Jarrar, feminist activist Khitam Saafin and former prisoner Ihab Massoud, as well as a number of activists in al-Khalil. The Front declared that these attacks will not stop it from continuing its role in resistance to occupation and confronting the crimes and projects that attempt to liquidate the Palestinian cause.

The Front emphasized that these arrests only underline the futility of the choices of the Palestinian Authority to continue to bet on settlements, “peace process” and security coordination. It also confirms the correctness of the Front’s position and its continuing struggle to build the resistance and the primary contradiction with the occupation as a major feature of its approach and political positions.

Palestinian prisoners’ victory in Israeli prisons

PRESS RELEASE
HAMAS

hamas2-400-x-205

The spokesperson of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, Fawzi Barhoum has stated the following:

The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas hails the incredible steadfastness of the Palestinian prisoners inside the Israeli prisons after claiming victory in a real battle which they had fought to extort their basic rights from their jailers and in which the Israeli Prison Authorities had no choice but to succumb to the prisoners’ just demands.

This victory serves as an evidence that by unity, will, and steadfastness Palestinians can achieve even the impossible missions in their struggle against the unjust occupation.

We as well thank the prisoners’ families, all the Palestinian people, and the free world for devoting the time and effort to keep this humanitarian issue alive. Their efforts and support rallies drew the world’s attention to the prisoners’ ongoing plight, and revealed the ugly face of the Israeli Occupation of being a blatant violator of the Palestinians’ human rights.

We take the opportunity to stress that the prisoners’ issue will remain a core one, and the ultimate goal of setting them free will never be forgotten.

Open Letter to the UN Secretary General Urging Israel to Respect the Human Rights of Palestinians Held in Israeli Prisons on Hunger Strike

Press Release
Center for Constitutional Rights

May 23, 2017

The Center for Constitutional Rights and four other civil society organizations wrote an open letter to the UN Secretary General, António Guterres, on the 37th day of a hunger strike by Palestinians in Israeli prison. The letter urged the UN to call on Israel to respect the human rights of the hunger strikers. The demands of those on hunger strike include calls for Israel to: end the use of administrative detention; permit more family visits; ensure adequate medical services (including specific services required by women); end the use of solitary confinement; install public phones to improve telecommunications with families; and improve access to education and other services. The prisoners’ strike arises in the context of Israel’s 50-year occupation of Palestinian territory and its transfer of thousands of Palestinians from the Occupied Palestinian Territory into prisons within Israel, in violation of international humanitarian law. CCR submitted the letter together with the International Association for Democratic Lawyers, the International Federation for Human Rights, the National Lawyers’ Guild, and Palestine Legal. The letter is published in full below. Read more »

THE PALESTINIAN HUNGER STRIKE: “Our chains will be broken before we are..”

Richard Falk
Opinion

palestinian-prisoners-in-hunger-strike-israel-palestine2-400-x-343

On April 17th at least 1500 Palestinian prisoners launched a hunger strike of indefinite duration, responding to a call from Israel’s most famous Palestinian prisoner, Marwan Barghouti. It also happens to be that Barghouti is the most popular political leader, far more liked, trusted, and admired that the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas. Barghouti is serving a series of lifetime terms for his alleged role in directing an operation during the Second Intifada in which five Israelis were killed.

Barghouti who has been in prison for fifteen years, gave his reasons for the strike as “torture, inhumane and degrading treatment, and medical negligence,” as well as a failure to abide by international legal standards pertaining to prison conditions during a military occupation. Even the normally timid International Committee of the Red Cross acknowledged prisoner demands by issuing a public statement asserting that the denial of family visits and moving Palestinian prisoners and detainees outside of the occupied territory to Israeli jails were violations of international treaty norms set forth in the Fourth Geneva Convention governing belligerent occupation.

UN Special Rapporteur on OPT calls on Israel to comply with international law on detention

PRESS RELEASE
Office of the High Commissioner
United Nations Human Rights Council

prisoners_palestine-400-x-266

GENEVA (16 May 2017) – The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, Michael Lynk, today urged Israel to comply with international law and international standards for detention.

The expert’s call comes as the ongoing hunger strike by approximately 1,000 Palestinians held in Israeli jails enters its second month. They are requesting better and consistent access to health care, more liberal family visit policies, and an end to solitary confinement and administrative detention.

“I am particularly concerned with Israel’s use of administrative detention, which involves imprisonment without charge, trial, conviction or meaningful due process, as well as the possibility of unrestricted renewal of their detention,” the human rights expert said, highlighting that administrative detainees are imprisoned on secret evidence that neither they nor their lawyers can review or challenge.

“Israel’s use of administrative detention is not in compliance with the extremely limited circumstances in which it is allowed under international humanitarian law, and deprives detainees of basic legal safeguards guaranteed by international human rights law,” Mr. Lynk said recalling his first report to the UN General Assembly. The Rapporteur noted that there are approximately 500 Palestinian administrative detainees. Read more »

Call from PFLP Prison Branch in the Battle of Dignity

PRESS STATEMENT
PFLP Prison Branch

pflp-prison-400-x-206

The following statement was issued by the leadership of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine branch in Israeli prisons, and read over Al-Mayadeen Arab TV satellite channel on May 11

To the masses of the Palestinian people, the Arab nation, and the forces of freedom in the world…

Today, the Palestinian prisoners’ movement is locked in the battle of freedom and dignity for the 25th day, with ever more determination to continue until the achievement of its goals. It is armed with the weapon of its will, the unity of the prisoners’ movement and the justice of our cause, with the support and embrace of the masses of the Palestinian people, the Arab nation and the forces of freedom in the world. The prisoners face, after their declaration of the battle of the strike, a bloody war and ferocious Zionist repression that has intensified in recent days and in various prisons. Dozens of leaders are isolated for participating in the strike, including Ahmad Sa’adat, Marwan Barghouthi, Abbas Sayyed, Ahed Abu Ghoulmeh, Kamil Abu Hanish and dozens of others. This repression is reinforced by the prevention of legal visits in an attempt to cover up their situation and the circumstances of their confinement, while the occupation intelligence agencies continue to use techniques of psychological warfare in order to break the strike. This has only made the prisoners even more determined to continue the battle and confront these Zionist attacks.

To the Palestinian and Arab masses…

The Zionist occupation prisons are prisons of horror. There are tens of severely ill prisoners, some engaged in the strike and currently barred from treatment, suffering from the policy of medical neglect. The clinics that are supposed to be places of treatment and alleviation of pain are instead sites of abuse and suffering. The declaration of the occupation of the establishment of so-called “field hospitals” is either an attempt to better its image in the media, or to create sites of pressure on the prisoners to attempt to break the strike and carry out threatened forced feeding. A number of measures against the prisoners have recently escalated, including the closure of prisons, conversion of whole sections to collective isolation sections, massive bans on family visits and the imposition of thousands of shekels in fines on strikers.

Despite all these measures, we have also promised to you that we will not break or give in, and so from the womb of our suffering and despite the severity of repression, we will continue this battle until victory. Read more »

“If my letter reaches you that would mean the hunger strike is ongoing and Israel has decided to respond it through incitement, solitary confinement of hunger strikers and repression, with the illusion that this will make us abandon our sacred struggle and our legitimate demands.

The Palestinian prisoners have faith that their people will not let them down and will meet loyalty with loyalty and will support the prisoners and their families who have endured sacrifice and hardship and suffering.

I am addressing you from solitary confinement, among thousands of prisoners and on their behalf, and among hundreds of prisoners who have decided to launch this hunger strike for freedom and dignity that will continue till their legitimate demands are met. Read more »

Comrade Ahmad Sa’adat, the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, delivered a special message from prison via the Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa’adat to the forces and movements of the Left in the world on the occasion of International Workers’ Day, marking a renewed landmark of revolutionary struggle against imperialism, Zionism and fascism and the forces of class and social exploitation.

He urges the expansion of the campaign for boycott and the isolation of the occupation at an international level.

An estimated 1500 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention centers have declared the beginning of an open hunger strike on 17 April 2017.

The hunger striking prisoners’ demands include: family visits, proper medical care, an end to Israel’s practice of detaining Palestinians without charge or trial in so-called administrative detention and stopping the use of isolation. Here are some facts on Palestinian hunger strikes: Read more »

Statement issued by the Palestinian Prisoners’ National Movement

PRESS STATEMENT
Palestinian Prisoners’ National Movement

In the name of God, the most merciful

“Those to whom hypocrites said, ‘Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them.’ But it merely increased them in faith, and they said, ‘God alone is sufficient for us and he is the best disposer of affairs.’” – the Holy Qur’an

Statement issued by the Palestinian Prisoners’ National Movement
Follow-Up Committee for the Hunger Strike

As the battle of empty stomachs (the battle of freedom and dignity) continues in its tenth day, a wide-scale targeting of activists and strugglers on hunger strike is taking place at the hands of the forces of the occupation prison administration, fully supported by the government of the Zionist enemy. Its prime minister and officials daily declare their refusal to deal with the just demands of the prisoners as they raise the ceiling of racist incitement against the prisoners while promising further oppression and abuse. They do not take advantage of the lessons of the past, where the prisoners have turned the tables of the prison officials, the intelligence agencies and the occupation state through their steadfastness, determination and struggle. This is another battle in a series of battles fought by the prisoners’ movement throughout its history. It is a landmark of steadfastness and struggle, emphasizing the course of resistance, unity, liberation and victory.

In this context, we are sending a series of messages through this statement to the striking prisoners and those ready to fight in this battle, to the Palestinian people everywhere, to the national and Islamic forces, and to all forces of freedom in the world, in which we affirm our need for support, solidarity, participation and unity as prisoners to confront the challenges imposed by the government of occupation. In this context, we emphasize the following:

First, to the heroic striking prisoners carrying out the battle of empty stomachs for the tenth consecutive day, we are all with you in support and not only with words. The occupation prison administration will be subject to the free will of the captives. We speak with insistence that we will proceed until the achievement of our goals. We are now at the stage of biting our fingers; we are together as brothers, mujahideen and comrades from the first cry. Support is on the way and the coming days will carry new actions to escalate the pace of the strike and achieve its goals. The message now is first to stand up, first to insist and first to adhere to the demands, all of us, and we will stand united to confront the executioner.

Second, all dialogue will be with the striking prisoners and we will not allow any interference whatsoever. We also warn against rumors circulating about the strike that aim to suppress the morale of the strugglers and attempt to limit the popular support for the strike and create a climate of confusion and hesitation. We call for refusing to circulate the news items that the occupation is attempting to broadcast and promote.

Third, we call upon the masses of the Palestinian people for even more support and solidarity through the daily struggle and clashes with the occupation in all locations. Every serious action and movement shortens the duration of the strike and makes it clear to the occupation that the prisoners are not alone. In occupied Palestine ’48 and in Jerusalem, it is possible to be in front of the prisons, and in the West Bank, in the places of engagement with the occupation forces, and in Gaza, which is steadfast every day, your support is critical, and outside Palestine, you are the call of the campaign and the voice of freedom, so that the Palestinian cause will prevail.

Fourth, we call upon the national and Islamic forces to unite under a comprehensive program for Palestinian, Arab and international support and to exert all efforts to support this strike of freedom.

In conclusion, we affirm that the coming days bear the promise of victory, “and those who do wrong will come to know by what overturning they will be overturned.”

Tamam’s father, Ismael, and her mother

When I was young, I shared my bed with my grandmother, my father’s mother. She used to spend the nights telling me and my sisters and brothers about her life, her homeland and her sons and daughters. She was the one who first told me about my dad’s many years in Israeli prison. But over the years, my dad slowly started opening up himself.

“I was a normal boy who grew up witnessing the oppression and persecution of the Israeli occupation. This is what motivated me to do my duty as a Palestinian to defend my country in all possible ways.” That’s how my father summed up his boyhood years growing up in Jabalya, Gaza’s largest refugee camp. “Do my duty,” to a Palestinian, means resisting the oppression of the Israeli regime that pushed my ancestors from their homes in 1948 and that continues until this day. For my dad, the consequence was a total of 15 years in prison. Read more »

The Palestinian Prisoners Movement in Brief

The struggle of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails has, for several decades, been a major element of the Palestinian national struggle against the brutality of the Israeli military occupation. Since Israel occupied the Palestinian territory in 1967, a staggering 800,000 Palestinians have been arrested and incarcerated (and a total of 1 million since 1948).

At this moment in time, there are approximately 6,500 Palestinians in Israeli prisons, including 57 women, 300 minors (under the age of 18), and 500 administrative detainees. (Administrative detention is a procedure that allows the Israeli military to hold detainees indefinitely on “secret information” without charging them or allowing them to stand trial.) These numbers also include 13 members of the Palestinian Legislative Council, three of whom -Samira Halaykah, Mohammad Al-Til and Ibrahim Dahbour- were arrested as recently as March 2017.

Hunger Strike for Justice

The open hunger strike is one of the only forms of passive resistance and peaceful protest available to Palestinian prisoners against the injustice and oppression of the Israeli military regime. Inspired by the righteousness of their cause, Palestinian prisoners continue to fight for their human rights and the realization of their just demands, which are enshrined in international legislation and conventions, (and listed below).

Since 1967, Palestinians have held 23 coordinated mass hunger strikes, the latest of which took place in 2014 and lasted 63 days. In addition, dozens of hunger strikes have been held by individual prisoners, including Fouad Bisharat, Ra’ed Mteir, Mohammad Al-Qeeq, Jamal Abu Leil, among others. Palestinian prisoners launch hunger strikes as a means to exercise their legal right to protest the punitive measures of the Israeli military authorities and draconian policies of prison administrations.

This open hunger strike is but one step on the long road towards freedom and human dignity. It is a significant and effective means to confront discriminatory laws enacted by the Israeli parliament (Knesset) and the collusion of the unjust Israeli judiciary and military courts that function as arms of the Israeli military authorities.

The open hunger strike of 2017 is being led and engineered by Marwan Al-Barghouti (an imprisoned Member of the Fatah Central Committee), and joined by hundreds of Palestinian detainees, including Kareem Younis and Diya Al-Agha (two of the most prominent leaders of the Palestinian Prisoners’ movement).

addameer-400-x-267

On the occasion of Palestinians Prisoners’ Day, 2017, the year that marks 50 years since the establishment of the military courts which routinely charge and trial Palestinian civilians, including children as young as 12 years old, the Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council (PHROC) calls for international protection of Palestinian political prisoners, an end to ongoing collective punishment by Israeli occupation forces, administrative detention, continued denial of fair trial, and illegal transfer and deportation of detainees. Since the occupation of 1967, an estimated 800,000 Palestinians, roughly 20% of the population, have been imprisoned by the occupying authorities. On this year’s Prisoners’ Day, Israel holds approximately 6300 Palestinian political prisoners, 300 children and approximately 56 females (including 13 female children) as well as an estimated 500 Palestinians in administrative detention (including 2 children), held for indefinite periods without charge or trial.

PFLP Prison Branch clarifies position, won’t join Fateh prisoners’ hunger strike beginning April 17

PRESS RELEASE
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Prison Branch

pflp-prison-400-x-206

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine prison branch called for accuracy and caution in the Palestinian media in relation to the statements of imprisoned General Secretary, Comrade Ahmad Sa’adat, especially with regard to the position of the Front in relation to steps of struggle inside Israeli jails.

The General Secretary and the PFLP prison branch did not announce a position in relation to the declaration of an upcoming hunger strike by Fateh leader Marwan Barghouthi. The position of the PFLP prison branch and comrade Sa’adat is that any collective step of struggle should first be based on a national consensus strategy of the prisoners’ movement, strengthening its unity and involving all factions.

In this context, the PFLP prison branch, despite its appreciation and high regard for the declaration of the brother, struggler and Fateh leader Marwan Barghouthi and a group of Fateh prisoners to launch a strike on April 17, they did not build on these efforts to make a unified announcement of a strike with the participation of all factions. The official position of the PFLP prison branch is therefore not to participate in this step, with support for comrades who live in joint sections with the Fateh movement prisoners to participate in the strike that was announced by the Fateh prisoners.

The PFLP prison branch renewed its emphasis that any collective prisoners’ step of struggle should be national, unified and with the participation of all.
