Hunger-Striking Palestinian Prisoners Get Music Support

For many Palestinian and their allies and supporters around the world Israel is a gangster state. They see it as a big bully who somehow managed to be above the law. As thousands of Palestinian prisoners struggle for freedom, many in the outside world are backing them up and telling their stories.

While tens of prisoners are on hunger strikes in protest for Israel's liberal administrative detention policies. Many of these prisoners were abducted from their homes by Israeli forces. One prisoner is almost dead and yet the Israelis have nothing to charge him with yet they still keep him in prison. Mohammed Allan has been on an aggressive hunger strike for more than two months and he is right now in a comma shackled to his bed. Also Allan is a lawyer! 

Indie artists in Palestine recorded  a song to spread awareness of the plight of the thousands of prisoners. This is a short song about a timely topic. It remains unclear what will happen with Mr. Allan, but the Israelis know they have screwed up and luckily the internet won't let them get away with it without suffering some PR damage.
