In November 2019, Trade Union Friends of Palestine and a number of Irish trade unions hosted a two day conference in Dublin on the situation of Palestinian children under Israel’s Apartheid regime. In this week’s episode of the Palestine Podcast, we hear from three speakers in a session focused on the arrest, trial, imprisonment and traumatisation of children in Israel’s military detention regime.
