CARTOON: Hunger Strike for Palestinian Prisoners’ Rights

Hunger strike for Palestine (Cartoon by Carlos Latuff)

This Carlos Latuff cartoon poster visits one of his most popular subjects, the Palestinian question, and this particular image highlights the #HS4Palestine (Hunger Strike for Palestine) campaign which began on September the 27th 2011.

The Palestinian prisoners had made several key demands:

– End the abusive use of isolation;
– End restrictions on University education in the prisons;
– End the denial of books and newspapers;
– End the shackling to and from meetings with lawyers and family members;
– End the excessive use of fines as punishment;
– And ultimately end all forms of collective punishment, including the refusal of family visits, night searches of prisoners’ cells, and the denial of basic health treatment.
