Jarrar: Khader Adnan’s life in jeopardy – solidarity needed for prisoner on hunger strike

Comrade Khalida Jarrar called upon all Palestinian and international organizations and activists to join in a campaign of solidarity with the hunger striking prisoner Khader Adnan, who has been on hunger strike for 52 days and faces danger to his life.

She also called for a full boycott of the occupation on all levels, official and public, and increased legal action to hold the occupation state and its officials accountable for their crimes.

She encouraged a Palestinian boycott of court hearings and processes of administrative detention, as they are nothing but a sham to attempt to legitimize arbitrary, secret and illegal detention, and are nothing more than an arm of the occupation. Khader Adnan has been held in administrative detention without charge since December 17 and has been on hunger strike since that time, protesting the illegal administrative detention system as well as the torture and abuse to which he and other Palestinian political prisoners are subjected in interrogation.

She saluted Adnan and his fellow Palestinian prisoners, noting that 10 prisoners in Ofer prison, including 4 comrades from the PFLP, had been placed in solitary confinement because of their solidarity hunger strike in support of Khader Adnan. Jarrar demanded the abolishment of isolation, which is a mechanism of torture and abuse, noting that it was currently being used on a long-term basis against dozens of Palestinian prisoners, including PFLP General Secretary Ahmad Sa’adat.

Jarrar called on international activists to launch protests and solidarity actions in support of Khader Adnan, drawing attention to his situation, and saluted and called for intensified national efforts to support the student protests, lawyers’ protests, and prisoners’ families’ protests in support of Adnan in Palestine.
