Assalaamu Alaikum

Following on the heels of Khader Adnan's recent victorious 55 day hunger strike that resulted in his freedom, after one year of being caged without charge or trial under administrative detention, two more administrative detainees are on hunger strike demanding an end to Israel's illegal practice of administrative detention.

Muhammad Allan, a 31 years old lawyer from Nablus has been caged by the occupation since 6th November 2014 without charge or trial under administrative detention. He has in total suffered 3 years in occupation prisons and several administrative orders having been issued against him. Muhammad Allan went on hunger strike after the occupation again renewed his administrative detention. As punishment for refusing food he has been locked up in isolation confinement at Ayala prison near Tel Aviv. He has lost over 10kgs in weight and is suffering severe stomach pains.

Uday Isteiti is from Jenin refugee camp. He has been caged by the occupation since 17th November 2014 without charge or trial, under administrative detention, at Israel's G4S secured Ketziot prison in the Negev. G4S provides and maintains the entire security system that keeps this hell hole operational. Isteiti went on hunger strike after the occupation again renewed his administrative detention. As punishment for refusing food he has been transferred to Eshel prison and locked up in solidarity confinement with severe measures being imposed on him. He is not permitted to bathe for more than two weeks now and is being refused a change in cloths. Vindictively the Israeli jailers have also taken away his Holy Qur'an during the month of Ramadan. Isteitiis is suffering extreme pain in his joints and can hardly move, but the prison is refusing to provide him with a wheelchair.

Both Allan and Isteiti started their hunger strike on 15th June 2015, and by friday 24th July they will have been without food or nutrients for 39 days. Their hunger strike follows the manner of Khader Adnan's hunger strike in that they are refusing everything apart from water so their bodies cannot survive long. Their lives are in critical condition and we must act now to save them.

Please join us on Friday 24th July 2015 at 3pm outside the headquarters of the British security contractor G4S, which secures many of the dungeons and torture dens where Palestinians are caged and abused, to demand freedom for the hunger strikers and all Palestinian political prisoners, and an end to administrative detention.

This protest is being organised in co-ordination with our friends at the 'Prisoner's Center for Studies' in Gaza as part of a joint protest with one they are holding at the same time in Gaza to show global united solidarity with the hunger strikers. We thank them for the help they have provided in vital information that has helped us mount this protest.

ADMINISTRATIVE DETENTION

Administrative detention is a practice used by Israel to imprison Palestinians indefinitely without charge or trial.

Prisoners are given rolling detention orders which can be anything from 1-6 months, renewable indefinitely. This is against international law. For example administrative detainee Mazen Natsheh has been locked up cumulatively for nearly 10 years without ever being charged with anything.

Detention orders are based on so called "secret information" which never needs to be produced, either to the detainee nor their lawyer.

Administrative detention is often used to arbitrarily jail Palestinians where there is no evidence for a trial, or for punishment as in the case of 8 Palestinian MPs.

Israel has on average issued over 2000 detention orders every year (2007-2011). Today there are around 450 administrative detainees. Most of them, like hunger strikers Allan and Isteiti, having been transferred from the West Bank into Israel in contravention of Article 76 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

"You cannot simplify the question of violence.. You look at human history - the American revolution, the civil war, the end of slavery in the United States, the African National Congress, the end of colonialism - by and large these were some combination of popular social uprisings and social movements and non-violent protests AND armed resistance. Now that doesn't mean I'm advocating for any armed action today, I'm not. I'm committed to finding ways of acting and speaking and making people laugh and doing art and disrupting the war machine in other ways, but I think focusing on violence when we have the comfort of being protected by mass of armed violence is not non-violence at all.. if you are pointing to the mass of violence and who's doing the mass of violence in the world today, you have to look to state violence - that's people bombing whole cities from the air.. "
