There was a meeting on Friday 27th at the Showroom. .
Sadly, due to the chaos in London Louise Haigh, MP for Heeley, could not attend. She did send a message of apology to the meeting and a strong supporting statement.
According to International Law, a child is defined as a human under the age of 18 years. Under Israeli military detention, Palestinian children as young as 12 are routinely:
• Taken from their homes at gunpoint in night-time raids by soldiers. • Blindfolded, bound and shackled.
• Interrogated without a lawyer or relative being present and with no audio-visual recording.
• Put into solitary confinement.
• Forced to sign confessions (often in Hebrew – a language they do not understand).
The treatment of Palestinian children is in marked contrast to the treatment settler children. There are separate courts, separate treatments and separate laws for Palestinians and Israelis.
