A useful new website containing videos dramatising various sections of the  Goldstone Report as well as links to a number of important articles and analyses relating to it.

About

On September 15th 2009, the U.N. Fact-Finding Mission led by Justice Richard Goldstone released its report (executive summary can be found here) on the Israeli invasion of Gaza. The report concluded that there exists strong evidence indicating serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law by Israel and Hamas during the Gaza conflict. The report emphasized that Israel and Hamas committed actions amounting to war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity.

Goldstonefacts.org is a project created by a group of individuals from around the globe who decided to dramatize portions of the Goldstone Report. We are all volunteers and amateurs. Our professional backgrounds are diverse as are our ethnic and national origins. In fact, most of us have never met each other. We managed to find professional actors willing to read the script, and Prof Noam Chomsky graciously agreed to read the report’s factual and legal findings for our first three clips. Director Ken Loach has expressed an interest in cooperating with us on future segments of our project. We have no outside funding, and at this point do not feel the need for it. The aim of our project is to make more accessible report’s salient findings and conclusions and to support the struggle of the Palestinian people.

The documentary GOLDSTONE FACTS - The real story behind Israel’s invasion of Gaza, presented as several segments, distills the findings and conclusions of the Goldstone Report in order to make them more accessible to the public.
