Palestinian Prisoners’ Day is marked every year on April 17th. It is considered a national commemoration day, a shared general consensus amongst the Palestinian population. This day is encumbered with political and social meaning, and this year it is receiving special attention due to the current prisoner strike led by Fatah senior official, Marwan Barghouti. This prisoners’ strike is intended to be turned into a wider struggle that is to be fought on two main fronts; the first is against the State of Israel, and the second is within the Palestinian political sphere itself.
