The jury of the Tribunal (which received the backing of UNISON National Delegate Conference in 2012) will issue a final recommendation and produce a final report on Israel's violations of International Law, third party complicity and what it means for us all:

A letter written by Palestinian Political Prisoner Marwan Barghouti will be read by his wife, Fadwa.
