The Russell Tribunal on Palestine is an International Tribunal citizens’ initiative , created as a result of the inaction of the international community in relation to violations of international law committed by Israel. During five international meetings, the TRP discussed the liability and breach of third countries , companies and international organizations in the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories , and the perpetuation of violations of international law by Israel. A session was also devoted to whether the crime of apartheid as defined by international conventions, was due to Israel. www.russelltribunalonpalestine.com

Frank Barat will give a brief historical overview of the work of the The Russell Tribunal on Palestine, including the Vietnam and South America tribunal of the 70s and will then focus on the Palestine tribunal with a strong emphasis on its last session, in Cape Town, that concluded that ‘Israel policies against the Palestinian People were in breach of the prohibition against Apartheid in International Law’.

Frank Barat is coordinator of the russel tribunal on palestine and also published : ” The realm of the possible “, ” Palestine state of siege “, ” Gaza in Crisis ” and ” Justice for Palestine ” . He produces and co-hosts ” The wall has ears ” on Radio Panik .
