PFLP calls for broad national movement in support of the prisoners’ struggle for freedom and dignity






The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine called for the broadest national action to support the prisoners’ movement, their strike and their goals, which begins on April 17, Palestinian Prisoners’ Day. The Front called upon Palestinians in Palestine and all areas of exile and diaspora, and for all official and popular institutions to plan to engage effectively – as the struggle of the prisoners is the struggle of the whole Palestinian people. The Front said that the prisoners are the vanguard of the Palestinian people, inside the camps and prisons of the occupation, and are key to ending the occupation, racism, colonialism, and achieving the rights of our people to liberation, self-determination, and return.


The Front called for the urgent formation of a national committee involving all Palestinian forces to support the document approved by the prisoners’ representatives from all political forces in the prisons, and to develop a comprehensive national strategy to engage on Palestinian, Arab and international levels to confront the occupation internationally for its violations of international humanitarian law and the Geneva Conventions, to hold it accountable for its war crimes, racism and apartheid nature.


The Front noted that it is important to refer back to the principle – and the UN resolution – that Zionism is a form of racism – and demand the UN and its institutions fulfil their responsibilities to act for the Palestinian people and prisoners to enable our people to achieve our freedom, sovereignty, self-determination and return.

PFLP Prisoners call upon all to support Prisoners’ Hunger Strike



To the masses of the Palestinian people, and all of your forces, organizations and institutions-

We greet you and your revolutionary steadfastness, which is bound to achieve a triumphant victory despite the long night of the hateful occupation.


In light of the urgent need to confront the Israeli Prison Services and their ongoing and escalating inhuman practices, and to escalate the prisoners’ struggle, and after lengthy and in-depth dialogue among the prisoners’ movement for over two years, a united national position including the majority of the sectors and forces of the prisoners’ movement has come forward to fight the battle of the empty intestines – the battle of the prisoners’ spring. This battle comes amid a spirit of defiance and steadfastness among the prisoners, and determination to confront solitary confinement, the denial of visits to prisoners from Gaza, demand the abolition of the “Shalit law,” demand the right to education, and the restoration of prisoners’ rights that have been trampled on in recent years.


We call upon all of our comrades throughout the prisons to be at high readiness and great pride to fight this battle. Despite the passage of less than six months after our last battle for freedom, demanding an end to solitary confinement and isolation, we are committed to this great struggle. Comrade Ahed Abu Ghoulmeh will be our representative in the Higher National Leadership Committee to coordinat and lead the strike.


We also call upon the masses of the Palestinian people everywhere they are, upon our national and Islamic institutions, upon the Arab nation and upon all progressive forces around the world to take up and engage with the struggle of the prisoners who need your support and action.


Together, we will march forward until the spring of prisoners blossoms on the road of the Palestinian Spring.

Leadership of the Prison Branch of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Leila Khaled in Turkey: warning against imperialist intervention








Comrade Leila Khaled, member of the Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, concluded a five-day visit to Turkey, in which she participated in a number of conferences and seminars in Ankara, Istanbul and other cities.


She spoke at a socialist seminar on “the dynamics of transformation in the Middle East,” attended by Turkish members of parliament and writers and intellectuals from Turkey, Syria and Egypt. Comrade Leila Khaled reviewed recent developments in the Palestinian struggle and the enormous sacrifices that have been made on the path of liberation and freedom.


Khaled confirmed the right of the Palestinian people to struggle with all forms of resistance, with armed struggle in the forefront, to recover all of their usurped rights. Comrade Khaled called for the need to speed up the file of reconciliation and national unity, saying it is the strongest weapon of the Palestinian people. She saluted the struggle of Arab peoples in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, and Bahrain, who took to the streets and the squares in search of genuine democracy, freedom and social equality, warning against attempts of imperialist powers and internal forces to derail and alter the character of the real Arab revolutions.


Speaking to what is happening in Syria, comrade Khaled said that “The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine is always with the people and their legitimate and just demands, but the latest developments in Syria clearly indicate that there is a US-Turkish-Saudi alliance with the goal of destroying and weakening Syria as a country, because it has said ‘no’ to the US and has not signed agreements with the Zionist entity, and hosts half a million Palestinian refugees.” She warned of the danger of pushing the Palestinian camps into the Syrian crisis, saying that “the goal of all of Palestine is Jerusalem and Palestine and must remain so.”


Comrade Khaled held a press conference in the city of Istanbul, attended by many Turkish journalists, discussing the position of the PFLP on national unity and Palestinian and Arab situations. She also presented on the role of imperialist powers and their regional agents to create a new reality in the region based on the New Middle East Project, which aims to redraw the boundaries of the region to divide the Arab homeland to serve the interests of US imperialism and the “security of Israel.” She said that the PFLP rejects any external interference, direct or indirect, in Syria and that the solution can only be created by Syrians themselves through dialogue and an end to killing and destruction.


She warned against schemes by the enemies of the peoples of the region being conducted under false slogans and emphasized the importance of coordinating the work of leftist and revolutionary forces to truly serve the interests of the peoples of the region.
