Onslaught:

Israel’s Attack on Gaza and the Rule of Law 

During its 22 day offensive, Israeli forces killed more than 1400 Palestinians, including at least 288 children, and injured over 5300, of which at least 1606 were children. The majority of those killed were civilians. Two weeks after Israel declared a unilateral ceasefire, a National Lawyers Guild Delegation of seven attorneys and one law student traveled to Gaza to investigate the circumstances that led to the massive Palestinian casualties, and to determine what, if any, violations of international law occurred, and whether U.S. domestic law was violated as a consequence.

 

Join us in hearing first hand reporting of the delegation’s experience in Gaza.

 

Speakers include:

Linda Mansour, member of the Guild Gaza delegation

David Gespass, National Lawyers Guild President-Elect
