The Committee also called for expanding boycotts of Israeli products
The National Committee for the Support of the Prisoners Strike called for a comprehensive strike on today 04/27/2017. The strike includes all aspects of commercial, educational and governmental services. They call upon the masses of the Palestinian people to be present in the solidarity tents for a sit-in to uphold the voices of prisoners in their struggle for dignified living conditions in Israeli political prisons.
The call also includes expanding the Freedom and Dignity Campaign to include a comprehensive boycott of Israeli products and calls on agents to stop all forms of relations with the Israeli occupation as boycott, divestment, and sanctions are a form of popular resistance which supports prisoners in their strike.
The National Committee for the Support of the Prisoners Strike salutes Palestinian Political prisoners and holds pride in their collective action with organizing and partaking in this hunger strike which now enters its 11th consecutive day. With the recent Israel calls for the execution of Palestinian prisoners, unified Palestinian struggle against racism, occupation, apartheid and settler colonialism is the only natural response. Even thought their stomachs are empty, they stand united with full hearts in their epic call to defend their dignity and our freedom.
