Today, 26th April, 2017, in Ramallah in the Occupied West Bank, a special protest took place in support of the Palestinian political prisoners currently on hunger strike.

The demonstration was attended by a wide swath of Palestinian society. People came out in solidarity with the political prisoners who are determined to secure their human rights, in opposition to an Israeli regime guilty of continuous brutality and effecting an increasingly blatant and dismissive attitude towards international opinion.

Photos, from the day, follow this text and it is heartening to see the many children who were in attendance at the peaceful event. They came from the Birds of Paradise Kindergarten to take part in creating the history of their country, Palestine. They were accompanied by members of the General Union of Palestinian Women, and students and faculty from Al Quds Open University.

As you look at the beautiful images, please keep in mind that the Israeli regime would willingly kill every child shown, if it would serve their agenda of death and dispossession. After all, they have slaughtered thousands of similar Palestinian children over decades. Something to think about…
