Fight for the life of Mahmoud Sarsak (Mon 11 June)
After our first solidarity demonstration on Tuesday 5 June, another event has been organised for tomorrow:
Date: Monday 11 June
Location: Outside the Department of Media, Culture and Sport (just behind Trafalgar Square) @ 2-4 Cockspur Street London SW1Y 5DH.
Time: 2pm at Palestine Place, 3pm at the Department of Media, Culture and Sport
Bring footballs, football shirts and banners for a fun media-friendly kick-about to raise awareness of Sarsak and the thousands of Palestinian prisoners being held under administrative detention and illegal combatant laws.
This action is being coordinated with the We Are All Hana Shalabi Network (from Scotland) who will be protesting outside the British Consulate in Jerusalem.
Info about Mahmoud Sarsak
As the world watches millionaire footballers compete for the European Championship trophy, Palestinian footballer Mahmoud Sarsak is close to death as he enters his 85th day of hunger strike, the longest in history.
Sarsak, a 25-year-old footballer and student from Gaza, was arrested three years ago as he was trying to meet up with the national team in the West Bank, and has been detained indefinitely without charge or trial ever since.
