Palestinian kindergarteners protested Israel’s jailing of 350 Palestinian children in a march organized by the Hebron-based group Human Rights Defenders and the residents of Shuhada Street. The children rallied for 3 prisoners in particular, Shadi Farrah, 12, who has already served 2 of his 3 year sentence and 2 girls, Razan Abu Sal, 13, who was sentenced to 13.5 months, and Ahed Tamimi, 17, who was detained at age 16.  The kids chanted, “every child deserves a childhood,' and asked the int'l community to protect them and for int'l law to be upheld. Their banners bespoke their anger at Israel and the Western countries that support Israel’s racist, apartheid, colonial, occupation of the Palestinian people.  When the event ended, Israeli soldiers prevented the children from returning to their homes.
