On Friday 19th August 2016 Inminds human rights group will protest outside the global headquarters of the worlds largest private security company G4S in Victoria, London to demand the immediate and unconditional release of Palestinian hunger striker Bilal Kayed who has been on hunger strike for over 60 days. Inminds will also demand an end to Israel's illegal policy of punitive Administrative Detention whereby Palestinians like Bilal Kayed are caged without charge or trial for an indefinite period of time with no means to defend themselves.

G4S partners with the Israeli occupation to secure many of its prisons where Palestinians are caged and tortured. Bilal Kayed was previously caged at Israel's G4S secured Megiddo prison where G4S provides the central command room from where the entire prison is controlled.

Bilal Kayed was imprisoned by the Israeli military occupation in 2001, he completed his full 14.5 years sentence on 13th June 2016. But instead of being released as scheduled to meet his waiting family at the military checkpoint, he was re-arrested without charge or trial and ordered to indefinitely-renewable 6 months administrative detention. To demand his freedom Bilal Kayed went on hunger strike.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "There are certain crimes that the occupation perpetrates that if left unchallenged, set a new dangerous precedent for all Palestinians.. The hunting down and murder of former prisoner Omar Zayed's in Europe was one such example and today we have the arbitrary caging of Bilal Kayed without charge or trial after he has already served his full 14.5 years sentence. If we don't fight this decision today then it will hang over every imprisoned Palestinian like a sword of Damocles. We must fight this injustice now!"

On friday, if he survives, Bilal Kayed will be on day 66 of his hunger strike. Kayed's health is deteriorating fast and is vulnerable to cerebral haemorrhage, heart attack or stroke due to the physical strain on his body. He has been denied access to an independent doctor and is currently suffering from “chest pain, kidney, jaw, eyes, ears, legs, as well as severe headache. He also suffers from blurred vision, numbness throughout the body, hair loss, as well as yellowness and peeling of the skin."

Despite his condition Kayed is kept chained, with his right hand and left foot shackled to his bed. Additional shackles have also been added to his feet, chaining him to the bed, despite the appeal submitted to the High Court by Physicians for Human Rights to remove the shackling of his hand and legs. In this state he is taunted and intimidated with 25 armed officers storming his hospital room and surrounding him. Meanwhile the occupation military court has set Kayed's hearing date for 5th October knowing full well that he will probably not survive till then.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "Its clear that by setting his court hearing date two months away, that the occupation wants to kill Bilal Kayed. Bilal was a leader of the prisoners resistance inside the prisons.. the occupation is afraid of him.. they don't want him to leave their prison alive."

Nearly 100 fellow Palestinian prisoners have joined Kayed on hunger strike and there is an international campaign to demand Bilal Kayed’s freedom with protests across the globe. Today there are around 750 Palestinians being held indefinitely without charge or trial, with no way to defend themselves, under Israel's illegal use of administrative detention. 127 administrative detention orders were issued last month in July 2016.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "Since 2007 the British security contractor G4S has worked hand in glove with the Israeli occupation, helping it secure its military prisons where Palestinians are brutally tortured and caged in violation of Article 76 of the Fourth Geneva Convention. G4S is a British company, we in Britain have a direct responsibility to end this company's involvement in the crimes perpetrated against Palestinian political prisoners like Bilal Kayed. We urge you to join us on Friday 19th August outside G4S HQ in Victoria, London."
