FEATURING ARAB BARGHOUTI – Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners remain on hunger strike while being held in Israeli custody. Among them is the famed activist Marwan Barghouti who has led the weeks-long strike to protest conditions facing Palestinian prisoners. Now, one of his sons, Arab Barghouti, who is currently in the US, has launched a social media campaign to draw attention to the hunger strike, challenging ordinary people and celebrities to drink a glass of salt water to show their solidarity.
