Temple Students for Justice in Palestine Present:

“Palestinian Prisoners: Generations Behind Bars”

In direct violation of International Law, Palestinians suffer indefinite and arbitrary imprisonment under Israeli Occupation. Palestinian youths especially are targeted and held for large periods of time without due process. The recent hunger strikes of Hanaa Shalabi and Khader Anan have brought attention to these illegal detentions.

Jeff Pickert, a representative from the Palestinian Solidarity Project, will lead a presentation on the subject matter. Having lived in the West Bank for more than a year, the talk will center on his experiences in the non-violent resistance movement. In addition he will examine the problem of child arrests and home raids in the West Bank and speak on his work with the Palestinian Youth Bail Fund.

This event is sponsored by the History Department and CLA and is apart of the Dissent in America teach-ins series.
