The Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RToP) is an international people’s tribunal that was created to expose human rights abuses and stir people to action in opposition to Israel’s recognized violations of international law. Join Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis, Russell Means, Alice Walker and so many others in New York City on October 6–7, 2012: http://www.russelltribunalonpalestine.com/en/sessions/future-sessions.
RToP was launched in 2009 following the massacre of more than 1,400 Palestinians in Gaza perpetrated by Israel during "Operation Cast Lead." Since then, it has worked to bring together legal experts, scholars, activists, and other people of note, to help shed light on the reality of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory. RToP also shines a light on the active role that third parties—foreign governments and corporations—play in perpetuating human rights violations in Israel-Palestine.
Previous sessions of the tribunal have been held in Barcelona, London, and Cape Town. These hearings have addressed, respectively, European Union support for Israel, the complicity of corporations in the occupation of Palestine, and the question of whether Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid. The fourth and final session will be held in New York City this October 6-7 (press conference at the U.N. on Oct. 8th), and will examine the role of the United Nations and the United States in perpetuating Israel’s impunity in depriving the Palestinian people of their self-determination.
