It has been more than 25 day since a number of Palestinian prisoners started a hunger strike.
And although Israeli police have vainly sought to discredit the campaign, releasing outdated footage that allegedly showed the campaign's leader, Marwan Barghouthi, breaking fast in secret, it doesn't look like neither the prisoners nor their supporters will relent anytime soon.
Slowly but surely, the support for the movement keeps gaining momentum.
Let's take a look.
1. It began with the saltwater challenge
The #saltwaterchallenge was launched on April 24 by Aarab Barghouthi, the son of Marwan Barghouthi.
The video in which Aarab announced the campaign went viral, garnering support from sympathizers, activists and celebrities the world over.
2. Five students at the University of Manchester join the strike
On April 27, five students from the University of Manchester declared a hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinian political prisoners.
"Decades ago, university students were key in demanding the end of apartheid of South Africa. University students have paid a key role in many anti-racist struggles, including Black Lives Matter. The struggle for justice for the Palestinians is no different; they have 70 years of unremitting mistreatment, including thousands of deaths, systemic expulsions, institutional racism and apartheid. We stand in solidarity with them." - one of the five hunger strikers told Middle East Monitor
3. On the same day, members of the European parliament staged a sit-in
The sit-in was organized by the Chair of Delegation for relations with Palestine Neoklis Sylikiotis, and took place at the European parliament in Brussels, Belgium.
The participants were parliament members from Sweden, Greece, France, Italy, Spain, Britain, Austria, Denmark and Portugal, Maan reported.
4. And the Edinburgh University Communist Society soon followed suit
Two days later, students from the Edinburgh University Communist Society showed their solidarity, starting their own hunger strike.
5. Huge show of support from Celtic fans
Banners and Palestinian flags filled the bleachers during a Celtic’s game against fellow Scottish side St Johnstone FC on May 6.
6. Support from Brazilian cartoonist Carlos Latuff continues with new drawings
Lattouf's sketches have consistently shed light on the plight of the Palestinian prisoners and the Palestinian cause in general.
7. 1,500 Moroccans go on a mass hunger strike
On May 7, more than 1,500 activists in Morocco joined a 24 hour mass hunger strike. The activists hailed from more than 50 cities from across the country according to a statement by The Moroccan Coalition for Palestine and Anti-normalization with Israel campaign.
8. Members of the Jewish Voice for Peace organization join the #SaltwaterChallenge
On May 10, members of Jewish Voice for Peace, a New York based left-wing activist organization focused on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict joined the #saltwaterchallenge .
9. New York artists show their support as well
With banners and projections.
10. The Palestinian flag is hoisted over Dublin city hall
Yet another reason to love Ireland.
11. More activists from the United States join in
On Friday, activists from US Palestinian Network and others gathered for a day-long hunger strike encampment in solidarity with Palestinian political prisoners.
By contrast, the reaction of Zionist far right activists has been horrifying, holding a barbecue outside the prison to taunt the hunger-strikers and add to their suffering in one instance.
Meanwhile, cases of severe health deterioration among Palestinian prisoners have been reported, including several hunger strikers coughing up blood, according to Maan News Agency.
