Demand protection for Janna

“I want to be able to play soccer with my friends without having tear gas canisters rain on us”. Demand protection for Janna and all children in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

At 15 years old, Janna Jihad is one of the world’s youngest press card-carrying journalists. She is also a child – and like all children (and adults), she has the right to feel safe and accepted. 

But although she longs for the freedom to live like an ordinary teenager, her life is far from ‘normal’ because Janna is a Palestinian who lives in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. 

When she was seven, the Israeli military killed her uncle. Janna used her mother’s phone to record and show the world the racist brutality her community experiences at the hands of Israeli forces. At 13, she became the world’s youngest press card-carrying journalist, documenting the Israeli army’s violent, oppressive and often deadly treatment of Palestinians.

This includes night raids, demolishing homes and schools, and crushing communities who stand up for their rights. Palestinian children are particularly affected. Many have been killed and injured by Israeli forces.

Today, Janna is facing regular harassment and even death threats for her journalism – but despite this, she won’t give up. “I want to know what freedom means in my homeland, what justice and peace and equality means without facing systematic racism,” she says.  

Freedom of expression is a human right. Show your support: tell Israel to protect Janna from discrimination and violence.
