Glasgow Solidarity with Khader Adnan
Yesterday and at very short notice the Glasgow Caledonian Palestine Society organised a very last minute but decent event in the city of Glasgow in response to call for a global day of action as the brave Khader Adnan reached 59 days of his hunger strike. Activists from the Univerity of Glasgow Palestine Society arrived and with other students and supporters of Palestinian rights we assembled at the steps of the Royal Concert Hall on Glasgow’s main shopping precint, Buchanan Street at 5pm.
Holding up placards of Khader and handing out hundreds of leaflets about Khader’s struggle we were able to inform the public not just about the Israeli occupation cruel treatment of Khader Adnan but the system of ‘administrative detention’ thus informing them the glaring chinks in the liberal democratic facade of the Israeli apartheid state.
As we await with dread and worry news of Khader Adnan’s condition, we condemn the inhumane and cruel Israeli system and salute the bravery and sumud of Khader Adnan as he stands up to injustice with the only weapons left to him, his health, his body and sadly, all too likely his life.
