Israel’s Crimes in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge – Extraordinary session of the Russell Tribunal

12 septembre 2014 - 24-25 September – Brussels – Albert Hall and the European Parliament

Le Tribunal Russell pour la Palestine organise une session extraordinaire sur les crimes de guerre israéliens à Gaza lors de l’opération dite « barrière protectrice » les 24 et 25 septembre à Bruxelles.

A few weeks ago, members of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, outraged by Israel’s terrible assault on Gaza and its population, decided to start working on an extraordinary session of the Tribunal that will look into Israel’s Crimes (including War Crimes, Crimes against Humanity and the Crime of Genocide) during the still ongoing “Operation Protective Edge” as well as third States complicity.

During this session, that will take place in Brussels on 24th and 25th of September, our jury, so far composed of Michael Mansfield QC, John Dugard, Vandana Shiva, Christiane Hessel, Richard Falk, Ahdaf Soueif, Ken Loach, Paul Laverty, Roger Waters, Ronnie Kasrils, Radhia Nasraoui and Miguel Angel Estrella will listen to testimonies from Paul Behrens, Desmond Travers, David Sheen, Max Blumenthal, Eran Efrati, Mads Gilbert, Mohammed Abou-Arab, Mads Gilbert, Paul Mason, Martin Lejeune, Mohammed Omer, Raji Sourani, Ashraf Mashharawi, Ivan Karakashian, Agnes Bertrand and Michael Deas.

The jury will give its findings on 25th September in the morning during an international press conference at the International Press Center (IPC, Brussels). In the afternoon, the Jury will be received at the European parliament and address a message to the UN General Assembly for its reopening.

Do mention if you are coming as a journalist and would like to record parts of the session.

This tribunal is your tribunal, and we need your support to make it happen. The total budget for this session is 50 000 euros. We are working under an exceptionally tight deadline and raising this amount of money is going to be an uphill struggle. If you feel like contributing, or know people that might be able to, please contact us, or check our “support us” on

Looking forward to seeing you all in Brussels.

In solidarity

The RToP team.
