Over 1500 Palestinians held in Israeli prisons went on hunger strike this year. They were protesting the Israeli policy of "administrative detention" in which a Palestinian can be held without charge for an indefinite amount of time.

Come learn about the treatment of Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli prison system, the growing nonviolent movement in the West Bank, and the impact of mass incarceration of the Palestinian people. The presentation will be accompanied by a showing of amazing art made by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails whose only supplies were pillow cases and crayons.

UC Santa Cruz Professor Gina Dent will also be giving a presentation on the US prison-industrial complex and her experiences in Palestine.
