In Human Rights

At a recent symposium in Winnipeg on Israel/Palestine, I made a presentation on Canada’s obligations under Article 1 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

I argued that, by engaging in arms and other forms of trade with Israel, by allowing products from Israel’s illegal West Bank settlements to be falsely labelled as “product of Israel”, and by opposing U.N. measures that are designed to constrain Israel’s violations of international law, Canada is flagrantly violating Article 1 of the Convention.

A video of my presentation can be seen here:
