Now we pay the price for our seduction

The battle for the soul of the ANC, from 1991 to 1996, has been lost to corporate power and influence, says Ronnie Kasrils.

Silence from academe

Last October 13-year-old Iman al-Hams was shot and killed by an Israeli army unit in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah. She had 17 bullets in her body, and three in her head. Iman is one of 654 Palestinian children killed in the occupied territories since September 2000. How many Israeli university lecturers have opposed the state's racist and colonial policies, ask Ronnie Kasrils and Victoria Brittain.

Eyeless in Gaza
