    Dear Friends,

    Israel's attack on the Freedom Flotilla on 31 May 2010, in light of
    its deadly siege on Gaza, was an urgent call to the international
    community to force Israel to comply with her obligations under
    international law.

    In cooperation with the Palestinian Boycott Divestments Sanctions
    National Committee (BNC), a group of Indian activists and
    intellectuals have initiated a Conference on Just Peace for Palestine
    at the India International Centre, New Delhi, on the 22nd and 23rd
    September 2010, starting at 9.30 AM each day.

    Club, between 5.00-8.00 PM, for representatives of major political
    parties to address the issue.

    Participating in the conference will be well known dignitaries from
    across the world. The speakers include former President of the 63rd
    session of the United Nations General Assembly, Father Miguel d'Escoto
    Brockmann; Member of the Palestinian Legislative Council and Chairman
    of the Palestinian National Initiative and Candidate for the
    Presidency of Palestinian Authority in 2005, Dr. Mustafa Barghouti;
    Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University and
    United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Occupied
    Palestine Territories, Richard Falk; Professor of History at the
    University of Exeter, UK, and former Chair of the Emil Touma Institute

    meeting. This would help in building solidarity in India and the
    region. Please feel free to circulate this to others who might be
    interested.
