Argentina activist on hunger strike to support Issawi

March 24, 2013 12:35 P.M. (Updated: March 24, 2013 9:56 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A human rights activist from Argentina is on hunger strike to show solidarity with Palestinian prisoner Samer Issawi, a Palestinian rights group said Sunday.

The Center for Defense of Liberties and Civil Rights, or Hurryyat, said Sunday that Faisal Sergio Tapia began hunger strike action on March 1 to show support to Palestinian detainees.

The Argentine is a member of the International Committee of Islamic Human Rights and vows to continue his strike action until March 30, to coincide with Palestinian land day.

Tapia, who has lost 7 kilos, said that Israel is committing human rights violations against Palestinian prisoners and called on the international community to condemn Israeli crimes.

Hurryya said it appreciated the "brave and historic role of Argentina and the human rights leader Faisal Tapia."
