Protest against the Arrest of Khader Adnan

Sheikh Khader Adnan was abducted by the occupation forces two days ago on Tuesday 8th July 2014.

A former Palestinian political prisoner, Sheikh Khader Adnan is known as the father of the hunger strikers - the symbol of Palestinian resistance and steadfastness, In 2011 he was abducted and caged indefinitely without any charged or trial under Israeli illegal system of punitive administrative detention. To protest his illegal imprisonment he went on hunger strike and won his freedom. His successful 66 day hunger strike in 2012 - the longest in Palestinian history at the time, inspired over 1600 other Palestinian prisoners to hunger strike. Since his release Sheikh Khader Adnan has been the voice of the Palestinian political prisoners, ceaselessly defending their rights at every opportunity and thus is a thorn in the side of the occupation.
