100 days of hunger for freedom

“I don’t want to die at Kaplan hospital,” Maher al-Akhras said recently. “I want to die among my family and children.”

Al-Akhras has not eaten in 100 days.

The 49-year-old father of six is on hunger strike to demand that Israel release him from detention.

He has been held for more than three months without charge or trial – even in Israel’s military courts, where there is a nearly 100 percent conviction rate against Palestinians.
