Please join our North/South Campaign to put pressure on the Knesset to treat children with humanity.


We will launch the campaign on 29th May in Warrenpoint and the cycle tour will involve meetings and talks with church leaders, politicians, local schools, local newspaper journalists.  We will also bring a petition for you to sign along the way.

The entire cycle tour will be filmed by an award-winning Journalist and Broadcaster, so come along and be seen.


If you have any contacts in the areas listed above or would like to dust

off your bicyle and join us for a few miles, please get in touch.


Our goal is to put pressure on Europe to enforce the following

conditions relating to child arrests;


1) Parents should be notified of arrest immediately and informed where


child (aged 18 and under) will be detained.
2) Parents and Children must be informed of the charges against said

children immediately upon arrest.


3) Parent(s)/guardian(s)/legal representative chosen by detainee’s

family must be present at all times during interviews1 and if necessary

given relevant travel permits.
4) Statements/official documents must be presented to detainee in

Arabic only.
5) Children must not be beaten or psychologically tortured at any time

whilst being arrested and/or detained.


Under Article 1 of Geneva Convention IV, the EU is obliged to enforce

International Humanitarian Law in the oPt and so we are asking for is

action within the current legal system.
