(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Ahrar Center for Prisoners Studies and Human Rights organized, in coordination with Argentinean and Palestinian activists, a vigil in Argentina in solidarity with Palestinian hunger striking prisoners and MPs detained in Israeli jails.
Fuad Al Khuffash, the director of Ahrar Center, said that this vigil aims at creating a state of interaction and solidarity with the issue of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails and introducing to the international community one of the most important Palestinian issues.
The vigil took place in one of the streets of the city of Buenos Aires, where the solidarity activists raised photos of hunger striking prisoners and kidnapped MPs, and demanded the international community to intervene to stop the Israeli violations against the Palestinian rights.
Elizabeth Drapkina, a young activist and a plastic artist, said: "In Argentina, we did not know much about the Palestinian prisoners. I was dismayed by the news I heard through the social networking websites and I sympathized with this humanitarian issue and decided to defend it."
This sit-in is the second to be organized by Ahrar Center during this month, after a first vigil that took place in Britain in front of the parliament in solidarity with the issue of the hunger strikers and the kidnapped MPs in Israeli jails.
