To mark International Palestinian Prisoners Day Inminds human right group, on Saturday 20th April 2019, held a vigil on the Southbank of the River Thames in London to highlight the plight of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons, and to demand their freedom.

Figures published this month (April 2019) show the Israeli occupation abducted 1600 Palestinians in the previous three months, including 230 children, and 40 women. Today there are around 5,700 Palestinians caged in 17 Israeli prisons. This includes 205 children Ė 5 of which are languishing in solitary confinement, and 48 women, , and 7 MPs. 497 Palestinians are held without charge or trial, indefinitely, under administrative detention orders.

Last year, in 2018, 3,255 Palestinian children were abducted and caged by Israel, that's one Palestinian child taken from their family every 3 hours!

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "The Israeli occupation is enforced by terrorising the indigenous Palestinian population; abducting its children - one every 3 hours; and imprisoning anyone who resists. In many cases the formality of a charge let alone a trial or even a set length of sentence are ignored - people are just locked up indefinitely on the whim of the occupation . During interrogation physical torture, even of young children, is standard practice as is sexual abuse of children. Women have been electrocuted into submission, and many prisoners like Arafat Jaradat have died under torture (72 prisoners in total tortured to death since 1967). If they survive the interrogation then they face the military court and its 'conveyor belt' trial system with its 'rubber stamp' 99.74% conviction rate. In no other country in the world is such injustice legalised into law."

Inminds chair Abbas Ali added "Some 20% of the Palestinian population of men, women, children and the elderly have been imprisoned by the Israeli military since 1967, every single Palestinian family has been effected. The prisoners form the cornerstone of Palestinian society, their suffering is felt in every home. We are here to show our solidarity with them and their families, and to demand their freedom from occupation dungeons. We are also here to demand that companies complicit in their suffering, like HP that provides the IT infrastructure for Israel's torture dens and dungeons, end their complicity in these war crimes."

On 9th April over 400 prisoners went on hunger strike to demand basic rights. The strike ended in victory on 15th April with an agreement for all prisons to install public telephones in the prison sections, which prisoners would be allowed to use three times a week for 15-minute calls to their families.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "Its a damming inditement of the Israeli occupation that 400 prisoners had to go on hunger strike in order to be grated their very basic right to talk to their families on a telephone for 15 minutes."

The protest was very well received by Londoners . For most Londoners the protest was an eye opener, fed on a diet of BBC whitewashing of apartheid crimes, they were oblivious to the reality of Palestinian prisoners, in particular to the existence of child prisoners, let alone to their torture and caging without charge by Israel.

"[Deportation at the airport] We saw the injured [Turkish] men going through.. a lot had a leg cut out of their trousers or an arm cut out of their top. It had been cut out to treat their wounds.. they were covered in blood, blood that had been there for three days, and some of them had wounds that were still bleeding.. What upset me most was seeing the dozen men, one after another, hobbling across the terminal, with a bandaged foot. I couldn't ask them why so many of them had a bandaged foot, I couldn't ask them what had happened, because if they spoke or if any of us spoke to them the Israelis beat the injured person.. We later found out that they had these injuries on the tops of their feet from when the troops came down from the helicopter on the Mavi Marmara, and they came down firing - they had been shot from above. Some of the men that were killed were shot at close range - head and chest, but a dozen of the men who were shot, among 59 people who were shot, they were shot at the tops of their feet - the bullets were coming down.. They weren't given a wheelchair or a pair of crutches, and if any of the other passengers stood up and tried to offer [help].. that person was dragged away and smacked by these Israelis. The Israeli soldiers sat on the floor, laughed and sniggered and made every one of these Turkish men hobble and hop all the way across, some 200 metres, everyone of them, one by one, made to do that purely for the sick amusement of the Israeli soldiers."
