Ali Mushaima, Zainab Al-Khawaja asked to end hunger strike over health concerns

Prominent rights campaigners Brian Dooley, Andrew Anderson and Sam Walton are urging Ali Mushaima and Zainab Al-Khawaja to end their hunger strike outside the Bahraini embassy in London.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Prominent rights campaigners Brian Dooley, Andrew Anderson and Sam Walton are urging Ali Mushaima and Zainab Al-Khawaja to end their hunger strike outside the Bahraini embassy in London.

“The medical reports suggest that they are in real danger,” a statement signed by three reads. “We call on them to end their fasts before irreparable damage is done to their bodies.”

“Their stand has made enormous gains, and we applaud their courage. Now it is time to pursue other forms of advocacy and protest to advance human rights in Bahrain,” the statement adds.

Ali started his hunger strike on August 1. He is demanding that his father and jailed Bahraini opposition leader Hassan Mushaima be granted access to proper health care, family visits and reading materials.

Last week, Zainab, whose father, Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja is another opposition figure and human rights defender imprisoned in the Gulf kingdom, announced that she was joining Ali’s hunger strike.
