Urgent: Zakaria Zubeidi on Death Fast!Salem-News.com
Palestinian Authority imprisoned co-founder of The Freedom Theatre and former Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade leader nearly four months ago.
(JENIN, West Bank Occupied Palestine) - Today the release of Zakaria Zubeidi was yet again postponed for 8 days for additional investigations.
As a response Zakaria announced he will embark on a food and fluid strike, a so called death fast, which effectively means that unless the Palestinian Authority releases Zakaria he will most probably not make it through the week.
Zakaria Zubeidi, co-founder of The Freedom Theatre and former leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, has been imprisoned by the Palestinian Authority for close to four months.
No charges have been made against him, no evidence presented and throughout his imprisonment his rights has been severely violated, as described by among others Human Rights Watch

It was almost one year ago exactly that we carried reports about the Freedom Theatre facing the threat of total closure and this is a tragedy when considering the history and potential of this organization that is highly organized in spite of the ongoing occupation and military strikes from Israel.
