Presentation and discussion on Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails

Wednesday, October 22
7:30 – 9:30pm
@ 439 Dunlevy (between Hastings and Pender), Vancouver

Please join us for a presentation and discussion in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners.

Presentations:
Charlotte Kates (via Skype) – update on the situation for the more than 6,200 Palestinian prisoners – including more than 200 children, 18 women and more than 500 ‘administrative’ detainees – in occupation jails.

Aiyanas Ormond – the case of Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Secretary Ahmad Sa’adat and the connection between terrorist designations and the incarceration and criminalization of Palestinians.

Discussion:

How can we raise consciousness of the use of incarceration and administrative detention as an instrument for repressing the Palestinian struggle for liberation?

How can we demonstrate meaningful solidarity with Palestinian prisoners, their families and their communities?

How can we expose and oppose the Canadian government’s complicity in the criminalization and incarceration of Palestinians who resist occupation and oppression?

Event organized by Red Sparks Union and supported by Canada Palestine Association and Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.
