Russell Tribunal puts US and Israel on trial


September 26, 2012 by SCNCC

The Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RToP) will be holding its fourth international session in New York City on Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7. It will take place in Manhattan, venue TBA.

The RToP is an International People’s Tribunal created in response to the international community’s inaction regarding Israel’s recognized violations of international law. The Tribunal aims to bring attention to the complicity and responsibility of various national, international and corporate actors in the ongoing Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and the perpetuation of Israel’s impunity under international law. Although the RToP has no legal status, like other Russell Tribunals on Vietnam, Chile and Iraq, its legitimacy comes from its universality and the strength that it draws from the will of citizens and the support of international personalities who advocate for an end to the Israeli occupation and Israel’s denial of Palestinian rights. (For more information on the Tribunal, click here.)


Following the sessions in Barcelona (which focused on EU complicity), London (on Corporate Complicity) and Cape Town (on the crime of Apartheid), the New York Tribunal will go back to the root of the conflict and focus on UN and US responsibility in the denial of the Palestinian right to self-determination.

    it is very hypocritical to have the likes of Dennis Banks as a judge, considering he and AIM leadership has used their pr machine to lie and deceive the world for years to bury truths no different than Isreal has used pr tactics of deception to evade justice.

    At the end of the day the AIM leadership and Peltier have lied to NDN country for 36 years that it was the feds who murdered Annie Mae, when in fact it was AIM members who kidnapped, interrogated and murdered Annie Mae. After three trials, two guilty pleas and the eyewitness testimony of over 23 witnesses proving that fact, AIM leadership and Peltier now support her murderers saying that the government made them murder Annie Mae?? Spending the last 16 years campaigning for my mother’s justice in a storm of BS lies and deception, has confirmed one very valuable lesson for me. The truth always prevails. ~ Denise Pictou Maloney ~ Aug 10, 2012
