Israeli Occupation on Trial
Panel with Mr. Mark Arnold,
Canadian Lawyer for the
Palestinian Village of Bil'in
Please join us September 25, 26, and 27 to explore this important case.
In July, 2008, the Palestinian Village of Bil'in launched a lawsuit in Quebec Superior Court against two Montreal companies: Green Mount International Inc. and Green Park International Inc. The two companies are accused of building condominiums on Palestinian land under Israeli military occupation: actions that are strictly illegal under international, Canadian and Quebec law.
