Two Kids a Day: Israel’s Systematic Incarceration of Children

Event Date
3 pm ET/ 12 noon PT

Each year, 500 to 700 Palestinian children, some as young as twelve, have been routinely arrested, interrogated, tried in a military court, and imprisoned for months, often without charges. Since October 7,2023, arrests have accelerated. The June Salon will explore Israel’s military "justice system" for Palestinian children through two documentaries.

Two Kids a Day leaks video from the interrogation of four children.  Their personal stories, as well as their life in the refugee camp they call home, are revealed. Caging Childhood explores whether Israel’s military detention of youth is a system of justice, or a tool for controlling the Palestinian population.
