a nice little adventure.
In the video mentioned above she sits alongside Peter Slezak, another Israel-bashing "as-a-Jew", who's going to be a speaker at the Randwick hate-fest.
The keynote speaker will be the notorious Israel-bashing Ha'aretz journalist Amira Hass, who's currently already in Australia working her

“The symposium Law, Rights and Resistance in Occupied Palestine is organised by postgraduate students, with support from a group of academic staff members at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). This event will examine and discuss the extent to which contemporary public international legal frameworks including international humanitarian law, international human rights law and international criminal law, allow or disallow forms of resistance to occupied rule in Palestine. As well as a legal focus, it will feature theoretical, post-colonial, historical, political and anthropological perspectives on the notion of ‘resistance’. We believe an interdisciplinary approach is necessary in order to accentuate and engage with the diverse forms of resistance that take place in Palestine as a consequence of the nature and character of the occupation.
Some of the specific concerns that will be addressed include:
Whether there is a legal right, as opposed to a mere moral right to resist occupied rule under international law and, if so, under what conditions it can be exercised.
What characterises the right to resist? What forms can it take? What are the boundaries of resistance?
What are some manifestations of daily forms of resistance and civil disobedience from occupied Palestine?
How has Palestinian resistance to occupation evolved over time?
What is the role of academia, particularly scholars in international law, in perpetuating or resisting the occupation?
We warmly welcome scholars, students and the general public to attend this important event..."Programme here
Although not an overt Israel-delegitimising event like the now-cancelled University of Southampton Law School conference, this is still an odiously one-sided, unbalanced event that lacks the differences of opinion one expects at an academic symposium.
It is simply and blatantly an exercise in propaganda
Little wonder that
'One university staff member told -the antipodean news service] J-Wire: “This one-sided anti-Israel bash dressed up an academic symposium is very concerning”.'

Good to know.
Perhaps Michael Spence decided a $5 note wasn't enough.
Thanks, Geoff. Kind of inevitable, really.Delete
