Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Act now to save Mohammed Al Qeek - Sheehan

15 February, 2016 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has urged anyone with a sense of justice to campaign to save the life of Palestinian prisoner Mohammed AL Qeek.

 Mr Sheehan said,

 “Mohammad Al Qeek is a political prisoner who has been on hunger strike in an Israeli jail for 83 days now and is very close to death.

 “I am calling on everyone who has a sense of justice to campaign for his immediate release.

 “People should take to social media, protests outside Israeli embassy, raise it with your local representative so that pressure can be put on the Israeli government to save this man’s life.

“The people of Ireland know only too well about hunger strikes given the recent 40th anniversary of Frank Stagg and the forthcoming 35th anniversaries of the H-Block martyrs.

 “The support shown to the Irish hunger strikers needs to be replicated for Mohammad Al Qeek and other Palestinian hunger strikers who are being illegally detained by the Israeli government.”
