World Food Day- Hunger Strike … A Weapon against Tyranny

On the World Food Day (October 16), Belady publishes an analytical research of data on 82 women and children who were imprisoned in political cases and went on hunger strike in Egyptian prisons over a period of nine years (2013-2021). The research sheds light on the violations inflicted on women and children during arrest, trial and/or imprisonment, which compelled them to go on a hunger strike as a means of protesting against these violations. The research also documents cases, along with their outcomes, in which prisoners protested through a hunger strike to confront the violations and maltreatment to which they are subjected.
