On December 6th, Donald Trump declared that Jerusalem, a city of great significance to Muslims, Christians, and Jews, as the capital of the occupying power of Israel. Since that declaration, at least 14 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli Military – and thousands of Palestinians being injured and detained, including hundreds of children, for protesting.
Ahed Tamimi, a 16 year old Palestinian, is one of those detained – she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier after they had invaded her home and shot her 15 year old cousin, Mohammad Tamimi, in the face.
Ahed, her mother, and another cousin were detained without any charges being filed until recently – Ahed has been indicted with 5 charges of “assaulting security forces”, and her mother has been indicted with “assault and incitement” after posting the video of Ahed.
Join Progressive Student Union at the University of Texas at Arlington in condemning Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the political repression of Palestinians, like Ahed, by Israel.
