Families of prisoners and national figures, including speaker of the legislative council Aziz Dweik and head of the Islamic Movement in 1948 occupied Palestine Sheikh Ra’ed Salah, attended the conference.

Different attendees spoke during the event, especially Sheikh Ra’ed Salah who hailed the steadfastness of the hunger strikers in the face of the occupation’s injustice and arrogance.
