Rafeef Ziadah, representing the Palestinian Trade Union Coalition for BDS (PTUC-BDS), the largest Palestinian trade union coalition and a member organisation of the BNC, will give evidence on the exploitation of Palestinian labour. Aldus de melding in bijgaand bericht (*).
Lees hierbij ook (over) het zojuist uitgekomen Corporate Complicity in Israel's Occupation met daarin de bevindingen van het Londense Russell Tribunaal in november 2010, verplichte vakbondskost. Dit te meer, wetend dat de zittingen van het Russell Tribunaal over Palestina in belangrijke mate mogelijk zijn gemaakt door de Britse en Zuid-Afrikaanse vakbeweging!

Palestinian BDS National Committee to participate in South Africa session
of Russell Tribunal on Palestine - Cape Town, 5-7 November 2011
* Live webcast begins 8am local time Saturday 5 November :
* Representatives of the Palestinian BDS National Committtee (BNC), the broad
Palestinian civil society coalition that leads the BDS movement, will
participate in the Third International Session of the Russell Tribunal on
Palestine in South Africa next month. Rafeef Ziadah, Jamal Juma’ and Ingrid
Jaradat will appear as expert witnesses testifying about Israel’s apartheid
policies against the Palestinian people.
The Russell Tribunal on Palestine is a public awareness tribunal set up by
international civil society to investigate violations of international law
perpetrated against the Palestinian people.
The upcoming session of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine will investigate
the question: “Are Israel’s practices against the Palestinian People in
breach of the prohibition on Apartheid under International Law?”
Jamal Juma’, coordinator of BNC member organisation Stop the Wall, will
discuss measures designed to segregate Palestinians.
“Whereas international institutions and governments fail to take action in
support of justice and equality for the Palestinian people, the Russell
Tribunal will raise awareness about the urgency of holding Israel
accountable for its violations of international law,” said Juma’.
“This tribunal will serve as an effective tool with which to educate a
wider public about the nature of Israel’s system of oppression of
Palestinians and will help to mobilise support for popular resistance and
the BDS movement,” he added.
Rafeef Ziadah, representing the Palestinian Trade Union Coalition for BDS
(PTUC-BDS), the largest Palestinian trade union coalition and a member
organisation of the BNC, will give evidence on the exploitation of
Ingrid Jaradat will discuss Palestinian identity and Palestinians as a
distinct racial group for the purposes of the definition of apartheid.
Others due to attend include Stéphane Hessel, Alice Walker and Ronald
Kasrils, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
