Ahmad Sa’adat in Hospital, continuing Strike

From  FreeAhmadSaadat.org: Ahmad Sa’adat, imprisoned Palestinian national leader, the General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, remained on hunger strike on October 19, 2011 even as he was hospitalized, and sent congratulations to the prisoners liberated as part of the prisoner swap agreement. Due to the hunger strikers’ tenacity and resilience, the prisoners’ leadership inside the prisons has achieved a victory in its hunger strike including an end to the use of isolation and solitary confinement; Sa’adat’s strike is continuing in order to ensure that victory is fully implemented.

Sa’adat was moved to Ramleh prison hospital after 20 days of hunger strike, on October 16. He has now been on hunger strike for 23 days, has lost well over 10 kilos (22 pounds), and has been experiencing serious health problems, including fainting and vomiting yellow bile, after Israeli Prison Administration officials refused to allow him salt, which, along with water, were the only items he would consume during his hunger strike.
