Activists stage sit-in before Red Cross

Activists stage sit-in before Red Cross:
NABLUS, (PIC)-- Palestinian activists staged a sit-in in front of the Red Cross office in Nablus on Monday in solidarity with hunger striking prisoners.

The activists said that the sit-in is also in protest at the Red Cross negative position toward the issue of those prisoners, who have been on hunger strike for 28 days.

They demanded a more active role for the Red Cross and toward the prisoners’ demands.

The activists said that their protest steps would escalate in the few coming days in the event the disregard continued toward those prisoners on the part of various institutions, adding that they would close down those institutions in the coming stage including the Red Cross.
