Yesterday, November 6th, UNM SJP hosted a fundraiser event at the Albuquerque Center for Peace & Justice for the Palestinian Youth Bail Fund. The speaker at the event was a young and experienced Palestine solidarity activist Jeff Pickert, who really outlined the problems facing mainly the West Bank with the popular resistance struggle as well as the increase of Palestinian youth being targeted and arrested.
We helped fundraise $250 for the Palestinian youth bail fund and will hopefully continue to fundraise for this cause. Over 350 Palestinian children under the age of 17 are in Israeli prisons, some without charge and without trial. If you would like to donate to this cause, you can stop by our table every Tuesday in the Lower Level of the Student Union Building from 11 am to 2 pm.
