“Bilal Kayed today is on his 56th day of hunger strike. He is determined to continue his battle for freedom and dignity. It is no longer a case of an ‘individual,'” said Khaled. “Comrade Kayed today is a truthful and genuine representative of the Paletinian prisoners’ movement and he is engaged in this battle based on his deep feeling of the responsibility that lies on his shoulders. This is the battle of administrative detention.”
“Of course resisting imprisonment is the task of all revolutionary movements today. We must remember the movement that Georges Ibrahim Abdallah and his comrades in Lannemezan prison are leading in France and elsewhere. We join the call to free Mumia Abu Jamal, the MOVE 9 and all of the revolutionary prisoners. This is a link between the struggles of revolutionary prisoners from the United States to Ireland to France to the Basque country to the Philippines and elsewhere: today Bilal Kayed represents all of these struggles. He must be freed,” concluded Leila.
