USA: Tell Congress: Protect Palestinian Children! - ONLINE PETITION

Amnesty International USA
According to UNICEF, more than 7,000 Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank have been arrested or detained by Israeli security forces since 2003. Many have been subjected to ill-treatment.  U.S. Representative Betty McCollum has written a letter to Secretary Kerry calling on the U.S. to make the human rights of Palestinian children a top priority. It is rare for Members of Congress to hold Israel accountable for human rights violations. Urge your Member of Congress stand up for the human rights of Palestinian children.
