Day #17 – July 23, 2014 – Speaking out in Geneva 

Source: Day #17 – July 23, 2014 – Speaking out in Geneva

On 23 July 2014, the Geneva International Center for Justice delivered an oral statement during the 21st Special Session of the Human Rights Council, addressing the Human Rights situation in Palestine. GICJ stated that the right to self-defense had repeatedly been abused by Israel in order to justify its systematic reprisals against Palestinians and demanded an immediate ceasefire for the “Operation Protective Edge,” the establishment of an urgent and independent commission of inquiry and for all responsible to be brought to the International Criminal Court.

Now that I’ve recently completed an International Humanitarian Law class, I have a new appreciation for the statements made in this video.
