Review:

'The Russell Tribunal unpicks the tangled but systematic corporate collusion that cements it all together. Walls have a history of tumblin' down' -- Paul Laverty, screenwriter 'This report from the Russell Tribunal is essential reading. Many of the corporations that trade with Israel have manifestos and Human Rights commitments that, they claim, inform their business decisions. The Tribunal tests these claims and finds them wanting. We hope the shareholders and customers of these companies, whether individuals or institutions, will look at the conclusions of the Tribunal and demand that integrity replaces unprincipled greed' -- Ken Loach 'A weapon for those who are compelled by human decency to mobilise solidarity in order to overcome one of the greatest injustices of modern times. It speaks out against the crime of silence - one of Bertrand Russell's immortal injunctions!' -- Ronnie Kasrils, writer, activist, former South African government minister 'This Tribunal surely helps prevent the crime of silence in the pressing case of Palestine' -- Tony Simpson, Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation 'The Russell Tribunal on Palestine' brings together vital documentation for understanding how big business supports illegal Israeli practices. A very important book' -- Ghada Karmi 'Like the landmark Russell Tribunal on Vietnam, this examination of the forces that maintain the epic injustice in Palestine is timely and critically necessary' -- John Pilger 'This excellent book presents compelling evidence of corporate complicity in Israel's violations of international law' -- Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace laureate 'It is vitally important to pursue the complicity of any corporations which aid or abet human rights violations in any country in the world. The Russell Tribunal is to be commended for calling to account those who share responsibility for the continuing devastation of Gaza' -- Julie Christie, actress, activist and patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign 'A compelling and urgent read for anyone concerned about corporate complicity in Israel's crimes against the Palestinian people' -- Omar Bargouti, co-founder of the Palestinian Civil Society BDS Movement 'An important, practical tool in the non-violent struggle against apartheid in the Holy Land' -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
