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. Nobel Laureate Mairead Maguire, Director Ken Loach, actor Mia Farrow, erstwhile Prime Minister of Netherlands Dries Van Agt, and writer Chris Hedges have all 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 documentary GOLDSTONE FACTS-The real story behind Israel's invasion of Gaza, presented as several segments, distills the report's salient findings
and conclusions in order to make them more
accessible to the public.
