    • Le 4 juin de 19h à 20h30 heure de Paris : Webinaire “MECHANISMS OF APARTHEID, APARTHEID IN PRACTICE IN ISRAEL, THE DIASPORA AND THE OPT”, avec Diana Buttu et Kholoud al Ajarma

      Kholoud al Ajarma will speak about the important role of the Jewish National Fund. In 2018, Kholoud appealed to the British Charity Commission that the JNF UK should not be recognised as a charitable organisation because the JNF funded British Park is built on her family’s village, Ajjur. Her family still have the title deeds to their land in Ajjur. The Charity Commission rejected her claim. Currently Kholoud works as a researcher and lecturer on Anthropology and Islam at the University of Groningen

      Le 10 juin à 19h à 20h30 heure de Paris : Webinaire "Combating a Virus : Militarism and Securitization Under Covid-19 - An online conversation on securitization and surveillance under COVID-19 in occupied Palestine and beyond", avec Dr. Nisha Kapoor (Assistant Professor of Sociology, Warwick University, UK) et Riya Al-Sanah (Who Profits’ Research Coordinator).

      The global response to COVID-19 has been wrapped up in questions of militarism and surveillance, not only in rhetoric (“waging war on the virus”), but also in the heavy reliance of states on military logistics, policing and surveillance technologies. In the Israeli case, the present crisis opens a window into the ways the deep architecture of an expansionist security state is mobilized in response to changing epidemiological-cum-political realities.

      What is the significance of securitization and surveillance in this present moment? What existing structures are being activated and drawn upon, what new ones are potentially emerging, and how are they circulating globally? And importantly, what’s the role of Israeli and international cooperation in all of this?

      ==========================================
      En ce qui concerne le précédent Webinaire “Apartheid and International Law” avec John Dugard et Virginia Tilley, il est disponible sous forme de podcast (audio seulement) ici :
      https://www.ipsc.ie/podcast/palestine-podcast-38-john-dugard-virginia-tilley-on-israel-palestine-apartheid-

      Résumé en anglais :

      Professor John Dugard described the close connection between apartheid and colonialism. The decolonisation process started by the UN in 1948 saw the rise to power of the Nationalist Party in South Africa, and the creation of a system of apartheid shaped by numerous discriminatory laws. The widescale protests were met with harsh repression.

      In 1973 the UN GA voted for the Convention on the Crime of Apartheid. Apartheid was defined as a crime against humanity almost on the same level as genocide. The Convention did not confine itself to South Africa. However, there was no court to prosecute apartheid, this was left to national courts. Until today no national court has prosecuted anyone on the crime of apartheid, not even in South Africa itself. Only 112 states became a party to the Convention (Palestine since 2014), and South Africa is not among them.

      In 1998 the Rome Statute created the ICC, and one of the crimes against humanity which it can prosecute is apartheid. The ICC, however, has no jurisdiction over crimes committed by Israel in Israel itself. But is does have jurisdiction on crimes committed within the occupied Palestinian territories, due to Palestine’s accession to the convention.

      Professor Virginia Tilley explained how Israel’s ’s overriding mission has always been to become and remain a Jewish State. For this, it has created a legal system that, although functioning differently in each area it rules, operates as one regime to ensure domination over non-Jews. For example, Israel’s civil legislation has 50 laws discriminating against Palestinians; these laws have been extended into the occupied territories to provide Jewish settlers with control of Palestinian land while oppressing Palestinians. The system as a whole aims to maintain an overwhelming Jewish majority in Israel’s democracy. For example, Palestinian citizens of Israel have the right to vote, but restrictions on residence, Israel’s ban on the return of refugees and other laws prevent them from increasing their numbers beyond those of a “safely small” minority. For dealing with apartheid outside the oPt other avenues than the ICC could be explored, for example the UN Special Committee on Apartheid.

    • LEÇONS DE PALESTINE : CONTRÔLE POLICIER, PRISONS, SURVEILLANCE ET RÉSISTANCE
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FvNxj36uMc

      Samedi 27 juin 2020 à 13h (heure de l’Est, Canada et États-Unis) ; 20h en Palestine ; 19h à Paris

      INTERVENANT.E.S :

      Riya Al’sanah : Coordonnatrice de recherche, Who Profits Research Center (Centre de recherche qui en profite)

      Sahar Francis : Directrice générale de l’Association d’appui aux prisonnières et prisonniers et aux droits humains Adameer, basée à Ramallah

      Yafa Jarrar : avocate du travail palestinienne et fille de Khalida Jarrar, une membre élue

      Joignez-vous à Labour4Palestine – Canada* lors de cette discussion par webinaire avec des leaders palestinien.ne.s sur le rôle joué par l’État israélien ainsi que les secteurs militaire et privé dans l’entraînement, le développement et la promotion des technologies et techniques de contrôle, de surveillance et de répression.

      Ces technologies, produits et techniques de sécurité ont des implications sérieuses pour les droits des travailleuses et travailleurs, l’immigration et les injustices vécues par les prisonnières et prisonniers à travers le monde. Ils sont testés sur les Palestinien.ne.s avant d’être vendus aux autres gouvernements, à la police, aux armées et aux forces de sécurité, incluant aux États-Unis (par exemple : aux agents du service de police de Minneapolis) et au Canada.

      Les gens se soulèvent contre le racisme et la violence d’État aux États-Unis et s’inquiètent de plus en plus de l’étendue et la portée de la surveillance et du contrôle policier, présentés comme des réponses à la pandémie de COVID-19.

      Les déclarations puissantes de solidarité envers les communautés noires luttant contre le racisme de la part des mouvements palestiniens ne sont pas une coïncidence.

      La COVID-19 a ouvert la porte à une expansion et une normalisation de la sécurisation et de la commercialisation des produits militaires et de sécurité israéliens, tout en renforçant le militarisme et la violence coloniale d’État contre la Palestine.

      *Labour4Palestine est un réseau pancanadien de militantes et de militants syndicaux qui travaille à approfondir la solidarité avec les travailleuses et travailleurs palestiniens et le peuple palestinien dans leur lutte pour la libération.

      https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzYuv2Nc4oSWuObCLibdT4A

      Longtemps, la question palestinienne a fait l’objet d’un traitement d’exception dans les travaux de sciences sociales en France, en raison notamment de son caractère politiquement sensible. L’étude de la Palestine et des Palestiniens se trouvait ainsi privée de la possibilité de comparaison avec d’autres cas d’étude, et notamment avec d’autres situations coloniales actuelles ou passées (Algérie, Afrique du Sud…). La formulation des problématiques, le choix du cadre théorique et l’interprétation des résultats suscitent aujourd’hui encore de vastes débats qui vont bien au-delà du seul champ académique.

      Comment a évolué le traitement de la question palestinienne en sciences sociales ? Quels sont les enjeux théoriques ou de méthodes de ce traitement ? Quelles comparaisons et quelles articulations faire avec d’autres cas d’étude ?

    • Le 12 novembre à 15h30 (heure de Paris): webinaire en soutien à la déclaration de Queer Cinema for Palestine (plus de 150 signatures), avec Ghadir Shafie, Elle Flanders, John Greyson, Shohini Ghosh et Syrus Marcus Ware

      More than 150 filmmakers committed to queer and trans liberation have launched Queer Cinema for Palestine .

      Responding to calls from Palestinian queers, the filmmakers pledged not to participate in TLVFest, the Israeli government-sponsored LGBT film festival, until Israel ends its oppression of Palestinians, queer and non queer alike. It’s an example of the growing awareness of our interconnected struggles for the liberation of all oppressed peoples and communities.

      On the opening night of TLVFest, join us instead for a discussion with queer filmmakers on the importance of this pledge, how Israel’s far-right government uses LGBTQIA+ rights to pinkwash its violations of Palestinian rights and the role boycotts have played in liberation struggles.

      Ghadir Shafie is the co-founder and director of Aswat – Palestinian Feminist Center for Sexual and Gender Freedoms. She is a feminist activist who dedicates her work and activism to advancing gender justice, advocating for sexual and gender freedoms, and promoting a greater understanding of—and commitment to—the issue of Palestine among global queers. Aswat organizes the Kooz Film Festival as part of its Art, Resistance and Social Change program.

      Elle Flanders is a filmmaker and photographer based in Toronto. Raised in Canada and Israel, she has an education in Critical Theory and Visual Arts and is an alumnus of the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. Flanders’ work has been screened and exhibited throughout the world.

      John Greyson is a filmmaker, video artist, writer, activist and educator whose productions have won accolades at festivals throughout the world. He is the recipient of the 2000 Toronto Arts Award for film/video and the 2007 Bell Award in Video Art. In 2009, he withdrew his film Fig Trees from TLVFest stating, “to not take this stand is unthinkable, impossible.”

      Shohini Ghosh is a professor at the AJK Mass Communication Centre, Jamia Millia Islamia, in New Delhi. She is the director of Tales of the Nightfairies (2002) a film about the sex workers rights movement in Calcutta and the author Fire: A Queer Classic (2010). She is co-founder member of Mediastorm Collective, India’s first all women documentary production collective.
