Hell walking on earth
Under the world's clouded gaze the State of Israel is ethnically cleansing the citizens of Rafah. Not a single excuse remains for inaction, writes Mustafa Barghouti*

Symposium 21 February 2004

" The Wall in Palestine: illegality and consequences"


On the 23rd of February the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague will open the hearings on the Wall that Israel is constructing on Occupied Palestinian Territory. The hearings will take place in the context of the United Nations General Assembly's request  to the ICJ to urgently render an advisory opinion on the legal consequences of the Wall.


Internationally, the construction of the Wall has triggered a great deal of indignation due to its large-scale and grave violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people. The political consequences are unequivocal: the large-scale annexation of Palestinian land will undermine the chances of a viable future Palestinian state.


Prior to the start of the hearings by the ICJ,  the Netherlands Stop the Wall Coalition [*] and the United Civilians for Peace have organized a symposium together with PENGON/ Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign. The symposium will focus on the legal aspects and humanitarian consequences of the Wall. The programme of the day is as follows: the route of the Wall will be illustrated. Legal experts will discuss the Wall in terms of international law. Palestinian victims will describe the impact on the daily lives of those affected. Politicians will be invited to present their views. There will be opportunity for debate with the public.  In an audio- visual side programme, a photo exhibition and documentary material pertaining to the Wall will be shown.
