The 17th of April mark the annual ‘Palestinian Prisoners Day’. It was initially set up to remind the public of the thousands of Palestinian prisoners that are imprisoned in Israeli jails, where they are routinely exposed to forms of torture and other inhumane treatment. Every year TRC is proud to host four annual conferences in support of ‘Palestinian prisoners’ day. These conferences are held in TRC four branches in Ramallah, Nablus, Jenin and Hebron. TRC is engaged in all national, regional and international effort made to free Palestinian prisoners held in by the occupying forces. TRC strongly believes that the torture inflicted against the Palestinian detainees in the Israeli Jails is a catalyst for many other differing forms of violence seen throughout the Palestinian community. TRC launches annual raising awareness campaigns aiming at stimulating and unifying the national effort for their quest of a torture-free society.
The annual conferences are the hub for many of TRC’s issued mandates including: TRC demands that the International community intensifies its efforts in supporting victims of torture around the world, especially in Palestine; The Palestinian people call for an international pressure on Israel to cease its daily human rights violations against Palestine, specifically by ending its 40 year occupation; TRC requests that the International community pressurise Israeli governments to accept standardised, humane, and regulatory procedures in its jails and detention centers.
