About the Issue:
Issue 128 of the entire Journal of Palestinian Studies was devoted to the Palestinian Prisoners' Movement in the Sixth Palestinian Geography-Zionist prisons. Most of its texts were written by Palestinian prisoners in occupation prisons and smuggled through bars. The issue includes seminars, reports, and articles on prisoners' diaries, how they face the difficult and brutal investigative phase, daily prison procedures, and prisoners' visions and dreams, which they make from sunshine strands radiating from their determination and steadfastness. Thus, they were able to challenge the limited space to reach the limitless academically by pursuing their studies and obtaining master's or doctoral degrees, and even delving into philosophy, sociology, and publishing research in these fields.
