Progressive Democrats of America CNM Chapter Newsletter – NO WAY TO TREAT A CHILD – PLEASE SIGN

DETENTION, IMPRISONMENT AND ABUSE OF PALESTINIAN CHILDREN

Since 2002, Israel has prosecuted over 12,000 children in military courts that “lack fundamental fair trial rights.”* Hundreds of children are detained right now. Israel is the only country in the world that systematically forces children into military detention and military courts. Detained children suffer “widespread, systematic, and Institutionalized [abuse] throughout the process.”**

The Israeli military uses torture, inhumane, or degrading treatment; physical violence or psychological abuse; incommunicado detention; indefinite administrative detention; solitary confinement; denial of parental or legal access during interrogations; and force or coercion to obtain confessions in Hebrew, a language the children do not understand.

PDA/PDACNM April Educate Congress Letter Drops

Every month PDA national sends letters to Senators and Representatives in almost all states asking them to please co-sponsor certain progressive pieces of legislation.  PDA chapters in each state deliver the letters to the appropriate offices.  In the past we have had cordial in-person meetings with staffs of our US Senators and Representatives.  However, due to the Corona Virus, we are now emailing the letters to the staffs and asking them to please forward the letters to the Senator or Representative.

These letters are well researched and focus on fighting injustice and inequality, environmental issues, voting rights, peace, and Medicare for All. After the letters are delivered, PDA member throughout the country make follow-up calls to ensure the Senator or Representative received the letters. We urge you to please read the letters and join us when we are again able to meet in the local offices.
