May 21 - June 3, 2016
The 2016 delegation on Incarceration, Detention, and Political Prisoners was co-sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee.
Read eyewitness accounts, reports from meetings, and experiences with Palestinians and Israelis below.
Exclusive content is also available on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook under the hashtag #ifpb57.
The delegation explored Palestinian and Israeli efforts to achieve peace with justice and delved into issues of detention and incarceration, the Israeli military court system, and political prisoners.
This delegation was Eyewitness Palestine's 57th, successfully exposing more than 1,100 people to the daily realities facing Palestinians in their quest for justice.
We believe in the power of eye-witness experience and transformation. Given the opportunity to speak directly with Palestinians and Israelis, delegates return to the United States better informed, more energized, and with a deeper understanding of the possibilities for true justice in the Middle East.

Eyewitness Accounts from the Delegation
We invite delegation participants to comment on and react to the experiences they have during our Israel/Palestine delegations in written Trip Reflections.
Individual delegates contribute pieces to these reflections. As such, reflections are not comprehensive accounts of every meeting or experience, but impressions of those things that most impact individuals. Submitted reflections may be edited for clarity or brevity. Trip reports do not necessarily reflect the views of Eyewitness Palestine or delegation partner organizations. We hope you enjoy reading and we encourage you to share these reflections with others.
