EMERGENCY: THIRTY SIX DAYS OF HUNGER STRIKE. Over 1500 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons have been starving themselves for 36 days now just to demand the most basic human rights. This is a state of emergency. Every minute their health is getting worse. They have families, lives, aspirations, and infinite dignity. As the #dignitystrike continues, the stakes are rising. Demands include end of solitary confinement (a form of torture) and proper medical care. We are being called on to escalate a media campaign, and take action. Here's how you can do your part:
1) Join the day-long hunger strike (more info at bit.ly/dignitystrike36)
2) Take a selfie with a sign & hashtag #DignityStrike36 & post on social
3) Call the Red Cross to make greater efforts to aid the hunger strikers-- + Red Cross Jeusalem: 972.2.591.7900

Please continue to spread the word, and tag friends who you challenge to do the same. This is an emergency. The longer the wait the more dangerous the situation becomes.
