50 Years and Counting: Legality of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 19:30

November 29th is the UN declared International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, join us in coming together for this event to mark this day!

Michael Lynk is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law, Western University, in London, Ontario.  In March 2016, the United Nations Human Rights Council appointed Professor Lynk as the 7th Special Rapporteur for the human rights situation in the Palestinian Territories occupied since 1967.

The James Graff Memorial Lecture was established in the beloved memory of University of Toronto philosophy professor, husband, father, and tireless peace advocate Dr. James Graff, founder of the Near East Cultural and Education Foundation (NECEF—Canada’s oldest Middle East peace education NGO), who passed away in October 2005. NECEF became NECEF Sabeel Canada, commonly known as Canadian Friends of Sabeel.

This event is co-sponsored by Emmanuel College, a theological college of Victoria University in the University of Toronto.  Informed by its Christian heritage, relationship with both church and university, and its Canadian, urban, and pluralistic location, Emmanuel College provides an education characterized by rigorous theological inquiry, contextual analysis, commitment to justice, and inclusive practice.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
