Support Palestinian Prisoners – 16/04/20

Description
Israel is the only country in the world to automatically prosecute children in military courts that lack basic safeguards for a fair trial. From the moment of arrest, Palestinian children encounter ill-treatment and torture at the hands of Israeli forces.

But it’s not just children who suffer under Israel’s system of oppression, and solidarity with Palestinian prisoners is more important than ever in the face of the coronavirus crisis.
