PFLP website

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in Khan Younis organized a rally in solidarity with Comrade Ahmad Sa'adat, the imprisoned General Secretary og the Front, and all of the prisoners inside the occupation jails, on October 30, 2010, drawing large crowds of leaders, supporters and cadres of the Front. The rally was organized as part of the campaign in solidarity with Sa'adat, protesting his solitary confinement of over 500 days.

Comrade Mahmoud Al-Ras, member of the Central Committee of Gaza Branch, called upon the PLO and PA leadership to immediately end their reliance on the promises of the U.S. administration, end their absurd involvement in negotiations with the enemy and stop their harmful actions against Palestinian interests, emphasizing the need for national unity based on resistance and struggle. He saluted the prisoners as an example of national unity in action in confrontation with the occupation every day.

He said that the occupation has full responsibility for the life of Comrade Sa'adat, noting that the policy of occupation is meant to undermine his life.

Shafiq al-Bream, recently released from prison, spoke about Comrade Sa'adat, whom he had met in prison, and his steadfast refusal to surrender to the demands of the occupation. He called for a comprehensive solidarity campaign with Palestinian prisoners, particularly those who are in isolation, and demanded that the Palestinian leadership prioritize the prisoners' struggle and not allow their sacrifices to be ignored or forgotten.
