ILPS Commission 3 Solidarity Statement on the Palestinian Political Prisoners' Hunger Strike for Freedom and Dignity

The International League of People's Struggle Commission 3 is in solidarity with the thousands of Palestinian political prisoners and detainees, as they go on a collective hunger strike for "Freedom and Dignity." 

In their fight for self-determination, more than 7,000 Palestinians are imprisoned by the Zionist Israeli government without charges or trial. Their struggle for freedom and dignity is their struggle for liberation from occupation and oppression as a Palestinian nation. 

Free Palestinian political prisoners!

Statement of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle Commission 3


Karapatan calls on Turkey Pres. Erdogan to release Kurdish leaders

Karapatan Alliance for the Advancement of People’s Rights - Philippines calls on Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to immediately release pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) leaders. 

On November 4, HDP Co-chairs Sellahatin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag were arrested along with nine other members of the parliament as part of the crackdown against members of the opposition party. The Erdogan regime used the July 15 failed coup as a pretext to arrest the leaders of the Kurdish people saying they were behind the coup. 

Justice for Berta Caceres and Nelson Garcia!

Caceres was a co-founder of the Civil Council of Grassroots and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (Consejo Civico de Organizaciones Populares Indigena de Honduras, COPINH), while Garcia is an active member of the said organization. Founded in 1993, COPINH is a social and political organization that has been actively campaigning for the rights of the Lenca people in Honduras amid the encroachment of US and other transnational corporations in their ancestral lands.

Justice for Omar Nayef Zayed, Justice for Palestine!

The International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) Commission 3 (In Defense of Human Rights and Political Prisoners) condemns in strongest terms the assassination of Omar Nayef Zayed, a former Palestinian political prisoner who sought asylum in Bulgaria.
