“No Way to Treat a Child: Occupation, Youth Imprisonment and Mass Incarceration in Palestine and the U.S.” on Sunday, October 9 at at the Valencia Park/Malcolm X Library in San Diego.

The San Diego chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace presented No Way to Treat a Child: Occupation, Youth Imprisonment and Mass Incarceration in Palestine and the U.S.” on Sunday, October 9 at  at the Valencia Park/Malcolm X Library in San Diego.

The event was held in conjunction with the No Way to Treat a Child campaign, which is headed by Defense for Children International Palestine and the American Friends Service Committee.  The campaign seeks to challenge Israel’s prolonged military occupation of Palestinians by exposing widespread and systematic ill-treatment of Palestinian children in the Israeli military detention system. 

Featured speakers were Beth Miller, US advocacy officer from Defense for Children International Palestine, and Dr. Dennis Childs, UCSD associate professor and author of Slaves of the State: Black Incarceration from the Chain Gang to the Penitentiary.  They discussed the impact of the Israeli military occupation on Palestinian children and youth in the West Bank and how they are targeted for arrest and violence within the Israeli military detention system.  In doing so, they will draw connections between the practice of state violence against and imprisonment of Palestinian children, and the criminalization, imprisonment, and extra-judicial killing of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and poor youth and adults in the United States.

Event co-sponsors were San Diego Public Library, American Friends Service Committee, Amnesty International, All of Us or None – San Diego, Council on American-Islamic Relations – San Diego, and Students Against Mass Incarceration-UCSD.
