Live Stream: Final Session of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in NYC (6-7th October)
The Russell Tribunal on Palestine is an International People’s Tribunal created in response to the international community’s inaction regarding Israel’s recognized violations of international law.
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. There will be live streams from New York on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October (starting at 3pm Irish Time every day) – use the player below to view.
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.
