March 30---International Solidarity Day With The Palestinian People---And "No Way to Treat a Child" On April 12 In Corvallis

Wednesday, Apr. 12, 7pm:  No Way to Treat a Child
Corvallis-Benton County Public Library 645 NW Monroe Ave

"No Way to Treat a Child" {NWTTC} is a joint project of American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and Defense of Children International - Palestine (DCI-P).

The NWTTC campaign seeks to end the widespread and systematic ill-treatment of Palestinian children held in Israeli military detention. The program's speaker is Tom Beilman, human rights activist, retired engineer and author of a new resolution calling for human rights for children in Israeli military detention. Drawing on recent participation in AFSC's fact-finding delegation to the Palestinian West Bank and extensive study of this issue, Tom will discuss Israel's military occupation and its military detention system that gravely impacts the lives of children as young as 12 and their families. He will share with us the many ways we can contribute to the growing momentum towards ending the occupation and its military detention of children, thereby giving peace and justice the opportunity to flourish in that troubled land.  The documentary film, "Detaining Dreams," features the stories of four Palestinian children dealing with the ordeal of Israeli military detention.

Local sponsors are:  Women's International League for Peace and Freedom - Corvallis; and Veterans For Peace, Linus Pauling Chapter.

Event is free and open to the public.
