That there is a situation of apartheid and settler-colonialism in Palestine is indisputable, supported by reports by Al Haq, an Award-Winning Palestinian NGO and Affiliate of the International Commission of Jurists as well as Israeli NGO B’tselem and international organizations Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch as well as the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.
Moreover, judges in The Hague, both at the International Court of Justice and at the International Criminal Court are also looking closely at Israel’s regime of apartheid (a crime against humanity) and settler-colonial transfer of populations (which is a war crime).
Citizens affected by and resisting international crimes
During this panel, alongside the ways in which citizens are both confronted with and resisting a range of international crimes, arising out of Israel’s long standing regime of settler-colonialism, participants will discuss how the Palestinian struggle relates to other, intersectional struggles and forms of resistance.
More specifically, they will explore the connections between the climate movement, the anti-racism movement and the movement for Palestine.
To help navigate this challenging terrain, the panel includes the following speakers:
- Ahmed Abofoul, Research Fellow at ISS and Legal Research and Advocacy Officer, Al Haq
- Marisella de Cuba (she/her), Activist with Kick Out Zwarte Piet and co-founder of the We Promise Foundation
- Roberto Clemente, Latinamerican postcolonial environmental activist with Extinction Rebellion and the Amsterdam Autonomous Coalition
- Roshan Dadoo, former South African diplomat, longtime anti-apartheid activist and coordinator of the SA BDS Coalition
- Yolande Jansen, Professor of Humanism, Free University of Amsterdam
