Write a protest letter to participants in Criminologists` Conference at Ariel settlement
Dear Friends:
Several days ago, Gush Shalom sent letters to Israeli and international criminologists due to take part in a May 30 conference at the Israeli settlement of Ariel on the West Bank, pointing out that participation in such a conference amounts to complicity in the violation of International Law (see link):

We ask you to take part in this campaign, yourself writing to the same people. You can either re-send Gush Shalom`s letter, with your endorsement, or compose a text of your own. You can look up the participants` web links, appearing here.

When writing to Jean-Pierre Gauci it might be worthwhile to mention his being a board member and national coordinator for Malta of the European Network Against Racism, and with Breea C. Willingham - that she has extensively dealt with issues of ethnicity and race relations in the US, and with various issues dealing with the situation of Afro-Americans. This would seem incompatible with the two speaking at a settlement in an Occupied Territory.

It might also be worthwhile to mention the call for boycotting Ariel by Israeli lecturers and Israeli artists.,7340,L-4011006,00.html
