STATEMENT SUPPORTING HISHAM ABU HAWASH AND OTHER PALESTINIAN HUNGER STRIKERS

The Virginia Defenders’ statement supporting Palestinian hunger striker Hisham Abu Hawash. Hawash, who will now be released in late February, resorted to a hunger strike in order to protest his imprisonment under administrative detention. Administrative detention is a tool by which Israeli military courts imprison Palestinians without charge or trial, for indefinite periods.
