In the third instalment of Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights UBC’s Palestine 101 series, SPHR, in collaboration with Charlotte Kates, on the behalf of Samidoun Network, are delighted to host “Palestinians In Captivity: On The Topic of Political Prisoners in Israel’s Notorious Jails”.
Since 1967, Israel has detained approximately 800,000 Palestinians, including women and children. The State of Israel has used its power to arrest and detain as a means to control the Palestinian population and punish any political activity aimed at challenging its occupation of Palestinian land. Palestinians participating in peaceful protests are subject to arrest and detention by Israeli forces. In this discussion, we will touch on who the prisoners are, the nature of the arrests and raids, interrogation and torture in jails, child detainees, administrative detention, prisoner solidarity, and so much more! Join us for this talk to learn more about this topic!
