UN Special Rapporteur Richard Falk Talks About the Slaughter in Gaza (Video of the Week)
Amy Goodman – Democracy NOW!
[TRANSCEND Member] Richard Falk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories, calls on the international community to help defend the people of Gaza from the ongoing U.S.-backed Israeli assault.
“It is time, it seems to me, for the international community to take some responsibility for protecting the people of Gaza,” Falk says. “The responsibility to protect was very self-righteously invoked in relation to Gaddafi’s Libya, but there is utter silence when it comes to the people of Gaza.”
Falk is a professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University and the author of more than 50 books on war, human rights and international law. We also speak with Raji Sourani, an award-winning human rights lawyer and director of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights in Gaza.
Join the BDS-BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, SANCTIONS campaign to protest the Israeli barbaric siege of Gaza, illegal occupation of the Palestine nation’s territory, the apartheid wall, its inhuman and degrading treatment of the Palestinian people, and the more than 7,000 Palestinian men, women, elderly and children arbitrarily locked up in Israeli prisons.
