Former presidential hopeful on short-term hunger strike against protest law

Former presidential hopeful and human rights activist Khaled Ali announced in a press conference at the Journalists Syndicate Wednesday evening going on hunger strike against the law regulating protests. 
According to Ali, detained political activists Ahmed Maher and Ahmed Douma also started a hunger strike against the law. 
Dozens of free and detained activists announced a hunger strike known as the "Empty Intestines Struggle" to demand the release of prisoners detained over opinion charges and to deprecate the law regulating protests. 
Mona Ezzat, an official at the Bread and Freedom Party, said that Ali was going on hunger strike for 48 hours starting at dawn Thursday in solidarity with the hunger strikers in prisons against the law regulating demonstrations.
