The US Palestinian Community Network (USPCN) and the Palestine Solidarity Group (PSG) – Chicago are proud to announce an important national tour:

Israel’s Palestinian Prisoners, America’s Other Guantanamo: A Report on the Conditions of Palestinian Political Prisoners

We are pleased to welcome human rights activist Ala Jaradat, the program manager of Addameer Prisoners’ Support and Human Rights Association in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, and a former Palestinian political prisoner, who will be sharing his experiences campaigning for the freedom and rights of political detainees and actively working against the use of torture, arbitrary detention, isolation, and other forms of political persecution and repression.

The $3 billion dollars of annual U.S. aid to Israel helps fund Israeli prisons and detention centers where 8,100 Palestinian prisoners — including 60 women, 390 children, and 550 administrative detainees held without charge — are imprisoned in substandard conditions and subject to torture.

You are invited to attend this important tour and hear directly from Ala Jaradat, beginning tonight, Tuesday, November 3, 2009, in Chicago, and proceeding to Milwaukee, San Francisco, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Youngstown, OH and College Park, MD.
