More than 300 imprisoned African migrants go on day 3 of hunger strike in Israel prisons
June 27, 2013

About 300 African migrants detained in the Saharonim facility in the Negev have refused their breakfasts for the third day, in protest of their arrest without a trial.

Due to this development, the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) now treats their protest as a hunger strike. However, the IPS decided not to remove food products purchased by the detainees in the canteens from their cells in order to encourage the untried but imprisoned migrants to end their hunger strike.

Here’s some context from The Guardian to illuminate further how Israel interacts with African migrants as a racist, colonial entity.
