The International Campaign to Release Samer

As many are asking about updates on the international campaign, I will start this post to do so..

Today is the global day of hunger strike in solidarity with Samer Issawi and his comrades Yousef Yaseen, Tareq Qaadan and Jaafar Ezziddene who are protesting their administrative detention for no charge or trial. More than 4000 people around the world striking as this is the least we can do in respect and respect of those who sacrificed their years of prime for the sake of our freedom.
