Palestinian political prisoners are demanding an immediate end to medical negligence, solitary confinement, and administrative detention, a common practice by Israeli authorities where a prisoner is detained for periods up to six months — renewed indefinitely — without a trial or charge.

Currently, these basic needs are denied to the 6500 Palestinian political prisoners incarcerated by the Israeli authorities.

ACTION ALERT! HB 1643 has been amended to prohibit using drones to fly over and document flares, oil and gas sites, and animal feed operations.
