URGENT: Khalil Awawdeh has been on hunger strike for almost 6 months to protest his illegal imprisonment by Israel without charge or trial.

He is on the brink of death. We demand his freedom NOW, as well as the end of Israel's practice of administrative detention.

(thread)
Staring down the barrel of “administrative detention,” or indefinite incarceration by Israel without due process, Khalil Awawdeh courageously decided to join a long legacy of Palestinian hunger strikers, many of whom successfully achieved their freedom.
For Palestinian prisoners, hunger strikes are the last and only form of resistance.

Though grueling and life-threatening, strikes are also a reclamation of control over their bodies, and a testament to Israel’s failure to break their will and suppress their struggle for freedom.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” - Nelson Mandela

Apartheid ended in South Africa, & together we can end Israeli apartheid against Palestinians. On @NelsonMandela International Day we honour a life dedicated to the fight against racism & oppression.

#MandelaDay
🧵
Mandela recognised the similarities between apartheid South Africa & Israel's regime of oppression against Palestinians. He never forgot the pivotal role Israel played in supporting the apartheid regime in South Africa & undermining the global boycott against it.

#MandelaDay
As a leader of the South African liberation movement that used boycotts & sanctions to undermine the apartheid regime, Mandela helped to establish many of the principles that today guide & inspire the Palestinian-led, global #BDS movement for Palestinian rights.

VICTORY: Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh will be released on June 26!

He had been on hunger strike for 111 days to protest his indefinite detention by Israel without charge or trial.

We are overjoyed he will return to his family and moved by his courage and perseverance.
For prisoners, hunger strikes are the last and only available form of resistance.

The process is grueling and life-threatening, but it is also a reclamation of control over their bodies, and a testament to Israel’s failure to break their will and suppress their freedom struggle.
During his strike, Khalil lost over 100lbs, his eyesight weakened to the point of not being able to recognize his lawyer, and his hair almost completely fell out. We wish him a speedy recovery now that he has suspended his protest.

Y'know not for nothing, but...

Assange Booster Club would have a lot more impact and be a lot more credible if they got basic facts right, like Chelsea didn't get pardoned, and yes the distinction matters especially since they lean on it so much
I'm just saying, the ABC gets a lot wrong. Like "what's in the indictment" wrong. Like "what is part of the established historical record" wrong. Like "that never happened" wrong.

Stop. Mounting. Terrible. Defenses. Of that Awful. Awful. Man.

“It is abhorrent Iranian officials continue to use dual & foreign nationals.. as bargaining chips,” “It is also particularly disappointing British authorities did not do enough to ensure Iran would uphold the conditions they agreed to for Tahbaz’s furlough.” #FreeMorad @trussliz
On February 10, 2018, family of Kavous Seyed Emami, Iranian-Canadian professor, arrested with Tahbaz & other conservationists, reported Seyed died in custody. Iranian authorities claimed he died by suicide, but they have not conducted an impartial investigation into his death.
On several occasions senior Iranian government officials have indicated that they did not find any evidence to suggest that the detained activists are spies.

1/ Right now, 500 Palestinian political prisoners are undertaking a "mass united resistance movement" against administrative detention through a boycott of Israel's military courts. Read about it in this letter penned from inside Israel's apartheid jails: addameer.org/index.php/news…
2/ Administrative detention is an Israeli policy by which Palestinians are imprisoned indefinitely, without charge or trial, on secret evidence. It's a form of arbitrary detention, one element of apartheid, as recently described by @amnesty. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
3/ Israel’s use of administrative detention is increasing alongside broader repression of Palestinians, criminalised for calling out injustice, and for raising the call for freedom. NGOs like @Addameer are targeted over human rights work. #StandWithThe6 palcivilsociety.com

500 Palestinian administrative detainees have been boycotting Israeli military courts since Jan 1st.

Administrative detainees are political prisoners held by the israeli regime without charge or trial, indefinitely. So what does a boycott mean? 1/5
As part of the boycott, detainees & their lawyers refuse to attend court proceedings. Admin detainees don't get trials, but they do have judicial reviews where their detention orders are confirmed, upheld, appealed... this is what 500 detainees have boycotted for over a month 2/5
The boycotting detainees are across three Israeli prisons: Ofer, Mejiddo, and Naqab, and we've seen the detainees begin to add other collective actions like refusing food for the day. The boycott is disrupting and challenging the farcical Israeli military judicial system. 3/5

Moreover, people with serious COVID symptoms who sought medical attention were told they were not permitted to see the nurse or doctor if they had tested positive. Guards are ignoring or denying requests for fever reducers. 6/10
Folks inside are being held on lockdown (23.5 hours/day in cells) and denied showers, calls, and visits (incl. video visits). One report said that C/Os have told folks inside that “phone calls are a privilege, not a right,” which prompted some to go on hunger strike. 7/10
The mental health toll of the pandemic on folks incarcerated in Mt. Sterling has been enormous. The facility has abysmal medical care, now completely overwhelmed by COVID numbers. 8/10

This NYTimes story about a planned prison closure is the latest public relations success of prison guards, the real estate business, & the Chamber of Commerce to convince us that we should keep people in cages to maintain jobs & real estate values & commerce. 1/

‘…many people in Susanville, which cherishes its small-town way of life — “we’re not rural, we’re frontier,” said one resident — relied on jobs at the nearby sawmills and on cattle ranches.’ AND many relied on jobs with the state or Fed govts in Forestry or Fish & Wildlife. 3/

BREAKING: HISHAM ABU HAWASH WILL BE RELEASED IN FEBRUARY!

He began a hunger strike 141 days ago to protest his detention by Israel without charge or trial, and will continue striking until he sees the signature of release on his documents.

May he recover fully and swiftly 🙏
We are overjoyed that Hisham will return to his family and moved by his courage and perseverance in the face of unjust detention.

His resistance is testimony to Israel's failure to break Palestinians’ will and to suppress their struggle for freedom and justice.
We will continue to fight for the end of administrative detention and the release of all Palestinian political prisoners. #FreeThemAll

Israel has been separated from his daughter since '19 & has been a leader w @ResistenciaNW during tht time. When Israel's case was submitted for prosecutorial discretion, ICE denied his request w/o even reading his file!

The Seattle ICE Field Office MUST revisit Israel's case!! He has been diagnosed w/ pre-diabetes, a condition he didn't have before being in detention & contracted COVID 19. He needs proper treatment.

Six brave Palestinian prisoners are on hunger strike protesting their illegal detention without charge or trial.

Kayed Fasfous, 114 days
Meqdad Qawasmeh, 107 days
Alaa Al Araj, 89 days
Hisham Abu Hawash, 80 days
Ayyad Hraimi, 44 days
Loay Al-Ashqar, 26 days

#FreeThemAll
Many of these prisoners are in critical condition. The Israeli military continues to violently neglect their health and renew their baseless detention orders, as it did with Meqdad Qawasmeh on his 105th day of hunger strike 2 days ago.
These prisoners join many thousands of unjustly detained Palestinians over decades for whom hunger strikes have been the only available form of resistance. Their strike is testimony to Israel’s failure to break Palestinians’ will and suppress their struggle for freedom.

Extracting false confessions on non-existent crimes by torturing Palestinians, including kids has always been the zionist occupation standard.
You can watch a decent documentary on the subject in the link below.
afsc.org/video/australi…
Deranged, yet unsurprising.
The problem has NEVER been the government, which zios especially liberal ones claim.
It is in fact the people themselves.
As the "israeli" president admitted
“It is time to honestly admit that Israeli society is sick”

There are so many other things wrong with this that i should start with but the music catapults the whole thing from a bad joke to a surreal journey into incipient madness
This is not something that needs to "improve." Fortunately there's such an easy answer to all of this though: #FreeThemAll and end all U. S. immigration detention

Solidarity with these brave and steadfast Palestinian hunger strikers!

To protest their collective punishment after last week’s escapes, 1,380 prisoners (1/4 of the entire Palestinian prisoner population!) have chosen a time-honored form of struggle: the hunger strike.

(thread)
This past week, in an attempt to deflect the blows to its illusion of invincibility and stop the momentum of Palestinian resistance, the Israeli prison service has intentionally made the lives of Palestinian prisoners miserable.
Israeli prisons have raided Palestinians' cells, physically abused them, denied them basic necessities, closed canteens and laundry rooms, moved prisoners to solitary confinement, cancelled all family visits and phone calls, and more.

U.S. & Israeli empire tremble against Palestinians armed only with sheer determination to be free, & a spoon.

@palyouthmvmt protested powerfully at the Israeli embassy to #FreeThemAll, demonstrating against carceral violence & for steadfast solidarity with Palestinians.
"One day all the prisons that have stood in Palestine will fall, & in their place our people will live lives painted by the colors of freedom & dignity."
6 Palestinian prisoners—Mahmoud Arda, Mohammed Arda, Yacoub Qadri, Ayham Kamamji, Zakaria al-Zubaidi, Monadel Naifat—who freed themselves make us hopeful.

District 8 for Justice organizer & USCPR advocacy & organizing fellow Alex reminded us that prisoner should be free.
