Three human rights activists, two Israelis and a Palestinian, are facing trial in Berlin for disrupting a representative of the Israeli state and challenging her responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The incident took place in June 2017 as member of Israeli apartheid parliament and chair of the anti-BDS lobby, MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid), was hosted along with members of her party by the Deutsch-Israelische Gesellschaft at the Humboldt University in Berlin. A media frenzy soon ensued throughout German media, which included slander and outright lies, along with the outrageous claim as if this was an anti-Semitic incident.
Ronnie Barkan, Stavit Sinai and Majed Abusalama, two Israeli dissidents and a Palestinian survivor of several Israeli onslaughts on the besieged Gaza Strip, will soon be facing trial for carrying out their civil duty in their opposition to Israeli crimes against humanity. The legal proceedings will begin on March 4th, 2019, at 09:00, in front of Judge Miller at the Moabit Criminal Court.
Renowned legal scholar, former UN Special Rapporteur and co-author of the UN report “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid”, Prof. Richard Falk, had endorsed the three activists and discussed the moral imperative of their action during a recent event that took place in Berlin.
The general public and media are all invited to participate and report on the legal challenge in holding Israel accountable for practicing The Crime of Apartheid and numerous other violations.
