The Hunger Strike that the BBC Ignores...

The latest news is that the hunger strike has been called off after an agreement was reached between the Israeli authorities whereby Palestinian prisoners receive family visits and medical attention. I do not know more at this moment.

Join the day of solidarity with the hunger strike.

Tuesday 30 May Solidarity Fast and Vigil for the #DignityStrike

Join us in protesting the lack of UK media coverage of the Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike. Today marks the 40th day without food, and the strike remains woefully under-reported. We will be holding a vigil in solidarity with the prisoners from 17.00 – 19.00 on Tuesday 30th May outside the BBC headquarters. Click here to find out more (https://www.palestinecampaign.org/events/solidarity-vigil-hunger-strike/) .

Other events (https://www.palestinecampaign.org/events/) are taking place around the country, including in Birmingham, Mailbox Square, 6pm.
