Marwan Barghouti continues hunger strike


In a communiquà© dated September 4th, 2004, the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) called for urgent intervention to save the life of Marwan Barghouti who decided not to suspend his hunger strike like the rest of the prisoners after the Israelis extended his imprisonment in isolation by another year. Marwan Barghouti had been in isolation for the past two years. According to the International Red Cross, Marwan Barghouti is so weak that he could no longer stand up on his own. Marwan Barghouti had lost more than 36 lbs of his original weight and is suffering from acute dehydration. Furthermore with the beginning of the hunger strike, the sadist Israelis had moved him to a prison section inhabited primarily by serious Israeli criminals mainly from the settler population in the West Bank.
