The girls in the photography workshop organized a demonstration in Jenin in support for the immediate release of Hana Shalabi, a 29 year old woman from Burqin who has been on a hunger strike since February 16th in protest of her detention. On Saturday March 10th at noon the girls headed to Jenin city with the signs they made that morning and flyers filled with information on how others can help support Hana. Instead of letting the low turn out of the demonstration in Jenin get them down, they decided to take the demonstration to Hana’s home in Burqin, where the girls met with Hana’s family, took photographs, and showed their support for Hana and her family. Hana is in her 26th day of her hunger strike and her parents in support of their daughter have been on hunger strike for two and a half weeks.
They will be organizing another demonstration next week in Jenin. For more information on how you can help Hana please visit the sites below:
