Military Detention is No Way to Treat a Child
We are excited to offer you a first look at the new website for our US-based campaign, No Way to Treat a Child. The website is full of multimedia updates and resources, and ways for DCIP supporters like you to help us grow a movement demanding justice for Palestinian children.
Every year, around 700 Palestinian children are arrested and prosecuted in an Israeli military system notorious for ill-treatment and torture. We partnered with the American Friends Service Committee to create No Way to Treat a Child, a US-based campaign that seeks to challenge Israel’s prolonged military occupation of Palestinians by exposing the widespread and systematic ill-treatment of children in the Israeli military detention system.
Israel has the dubious distinction of being the only country in the world that automatically prosecutes children in military courts that lack basic safeguards for a fair trial. We believe the US government must use all available means to pressure Israeli authorities to end the detention and abuse of Palestinian children.
