Press Release on the Triumph of the Prisoners, issued by the European Coalition of Support for Palestinian Prisoners
 

With much pride and joy, we have received the news of the agreement between the Joint Leadership of the Prisoners’ strike and jail authorities. This agreement would guarantee prisoners their dignity and legal human rights, upheld by all international agreements and human rights conventions, and it would try to improve the conditions of their detention.

We congratulate the brave prisoners, who succeeded with their empty stomachs, and we salute their firmness. We also address cordial congratulations to the firm mothers of the prisoners and their relatives, who accompanied the strike of their loved ones at all times.

We congratulate our people for this success, at the start of the sacred month of Ramadan,
wishing that the freedom of our prisoners would come closer and closer all the time. In the euphoria of this success, we salute the sons and daughters of our people in Europe and throughout the world, we salute all those who expressed their solidarity with our people and took part, together with us, in the rallies in the plazas and actively mobilized until the triumph of prisoners.

We congratulate our people for this success, at the start of the sacred month of Ramadan, wishing that the freedom of our prisoners would come closer and closer all the time. In the euphoria of this success, we salute the sons and daughters of our people in Europe and throughout the world, we salute all those who expressed their solidarity with our people and took part, together with us, in the rallies in the plazas and actively mobilized until the triumph of prisoners is achieved.

What is unsettling about this triumph is our clear knowledge of the fact that the authorities of occupation use maneuvers and deceiving tactics and have not complied with any agreement, because hundreds and even thousands prisoners were again detained after having been freed by virtue of the agreements, besides depriving again prisoners of the successes that they had achieved.

That is why we, from the European Coalition, call on everyone to be cautious. We address the people who expressed their solidarity with the prisoners and ask them to continue with their mobilizations until achieving the basic goal of the strike of Freedom and Dignity, which is the full freedom of prisoners, putting an end to occupation. Fifty years of occupation and seventy years of expulsions are enough to awaken consciousness.

Congratulations for our prisoners, their relatives and our people in the light of this success.
Our motto will continue to be “Freedom for the prisoners of Freedom”.

Coordinating Committee of the European Coalition of Support for Palestinian Prisoners.
