Protester at Dupont Circle

Petition to Support Hunger Striker Khader Adnan

Please sign a petition in support of Khader Adnan, addressed to Jeffrey Feltman, Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs. This petition was started by one of our fast-thinking readers. In spite of the rain and snow drenching protesters, last evening's demonstration in Washington, DC's Dupont circle occurred (see right). 

Tommy McKearney, one of the participants of the legendary 1980-81 Irish hunger strikes has sent a video message of solidarity to Khader Adnan and his family. http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/video-former-irish-hunger-strikers-message-khader-adnan-palestinian-prisoner-55.

We hope Khader knows that people around the world, including Americans support him and we hope he survives his detention.
