APRIL 5: 

Captive Youth: Palestinian Political Prisoners and Human Rights (hosted by Penn for Palestine) 

6-8pm, Huntsman Hall Room 250, University of Pennsylvania

In direct violation of International Law, many Palestinians suffer indefinite and arbitrary imprisonment by Israeli military occupying forces. Palestinian youth and children especially are targeted and held for large periods of time without due process, as the recent hunger strikes of Hanaa Shalabi and Khader Adnan have highlighted.

Jeff Pickert, an American representative from the Palestinian Solidarity Project and the Youth Bail Fund, has lived and worked in the West Bank to protect the human rights of Palestinian civilian youth. He will present on the growing non-violent resistance movement in the Occupied Territories, and the effects of child arrests and home raids on Palestinian families and society.

APRIL 6: 

Palestinian Prisoners: Generations Behind Bars (hosted by Temple SJP) 

3-4:30pm, Anderson Hall Room 821, 1114 W Berks Street

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.
