A Report on the Conditions of Palestinian Political Prisoners featuring human rights activist Ala Jaradat from Addameer – Prisoners’ Support and Human Rights Association
Wednesday, November 11th @ 7PM @ Blegen Hall 150, West Bank, U of M
The $3 billion dollars of annual U.S. aid to Israel helps fund Israeli prisons and detention centers where 8,100 Palestinian prisoners — including 60 women, 390 children, and 550 administrative detainees held without charge — are imprisoned in substandard conditions and subject to torture.
Human rights activist Ala Jaradat, the program manager of Addameer, the Palestinian prisoners rights organization in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, and a former Palestinian political prisoner, will be sharing his experiences campaigning against political prosecution, for the rights of political detainees, actively working against the use of torture, arbitrary detention, the use of isolation, and other forms of political repression.
Co-Sponsored by the Anti-War Committee and WAMM
Endorsed by the Al-Aqsa Institute, CAIR-MN, the Coalition for Palestinian Rights, IJAN – TC, the MN National Lawyers Guild, and U of M sds.
