DemocracyNow.org – Democracy Now! interviews world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author Noam Chomsky, asking him about the ongoing Palestinian prisoner hunger strike. An estimated 2,000 jailed Palestinians have gone without food to pressure Israeli prison authorities to end the use of solitary confinement and ease a wide range of restrictions. “The hunger strikes are a protest against violations of the elementary human rights,” Chomsky says, who is Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of dozens of books, most recently, “Occupy.”
