UFree international campaign for ending “Administrative Detention” policy against Palestinian political prisoners and detainees has steadily succeeded to gain wide support among European MPs and politicians.

 

In light of administrative detainees' hunger strike, UFree Network launched an international campaign calling for an end to Israeli “Administrative Detention” policy which leaves hundreds of Palestinian political detainees held inside Israeli jails without charge or trial.

 

The campaign included sending letters to Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) briefing them on the Palestinian  detainees' plight in Israeli jails in order to curb Israeli crimes and violations against Palestinian detainees.

 

Numerous letters and emails have been received showing the positive interaction with the campaign. MP for Brighton Pavilion in House of Commons Caroline Lucas, stressed in her letter to UFree Network that she will continue efforts to put an end to the Israeli escalated violations.

 

“Please be assured I am doing all I can on your behalf to continue to press the Government to better hold Israel to account for its settlement policy, and for other policies and actions that flout international agreements and human rights law”she said.

 

UFree petition for ending “Administrative Detention” policy has also attracted widespread support on social media sites. Activists around the world have signed and shared the petition calling for an immediate end to Israeli violations against administrative detainees.

 

The campaign came as a result of Palestinian administrative detainees' open-ended hunger strike which started 24th of April demanding an end to their detention without trial or charge in total violation to international laws.
