Responding to the urgent call of Palestinian prisoners for support in the face of an escalation of violence and repression by the Occupation and the Israeli Prison Authority, solidarity activists in Vancouver – Coast Salish Territories will be engaging in a 24 hour fast and day of action.

There are currently 5750 Palestinian prisoners in the Occupation Jails, including 401 administrative detainees, 25 women and 164 children. All of these Palestinians are jailed for resisting the occupation!

Participate in the Fast! Pledge to fast from 9pm Monday August 17 to 9pm Tuesday August 18 and collect donations for Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network from family and friends. Contact aiyanas.ormond@gmail.com if you want to join the fast.

Pledge a faster or make a donation! You can make a donation directly to Samidoun or make a cash donation to a faster. All funds will be used for educational and advocacy work in solidarity with Palestinian Prisoners.

Join us between 12pm and 5pm on Tuesday, August 18 at Broadway Skytrain Station to help raise consciousness of the situation of Palestinian prisoners by leafleting, gathering signatures and talking to the public. This will include gathering support for the recently launched BDS Vancouver campaign for boycott and divestment from security firm G4$.
