Quaker Forum – No Way to Treat a Child: Children of Palestine – Lois Griffiths
12 August at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
According to Defence of Children International Palestine (DCIP), approximately 10,000 Palestinian children have been detained by Israeli forces since 2000. DCIP and the American Friends Service Committee (a Quaker organisation), are running the campaign ‘No Way to Treat a Child’, hoping that the Israeli regime will drop its child detention policies. The situation is urgent, as Covid-19 has appeared in Israeli prisons.
Lois Griffiths, who has had a life-long interest in international issues, will take us behind the statistics and share with us the hopes and dreams of Palestinian children. After she has outlined the issues and shared some of the children’s stories, the floor will be open for questions, comments and ideas. The Forum will end with the opportunity for informal discussion over tea and biscuits.
