In the 1970s, 60,000 residents of Cape Town's District Six were forcibly removed following its designation as a White Area by the apartheid regime. Based on testimony from international legal experts and witnesses from the ground in Israel/Palestine, the Russell Tribunal on Palestine convenes in November 2011 in the District Six museum in Cape Town to examine Israel’s rule over the Palestinian people in the context of the prohibition of apartheid under international law.
