Hana Shalabi is a 30 year old woman from the village of Burqin in Palestine, locked up in an Israeli jail awaiting death.
Shalabi, one of nine children in a family of farmers, is a political prisoner being held by the occupying Israeli authorities without charge or evidence under a four-month term of “administrative detention”.
Currently nearing the 40th day of a hunger strike protesting her detention, Shalabi is a sad yet powerful symbol of Israel’s cruel and brutal occupation of Palestine.
