They have targeted some of the companies that facilitate/profit from Israeli violation of human rights, International law, and UN Resolutions, including: Caterpillar, Elbit and Veolia.

Activist and researcher Dalit Baum will give a speech in Taipei on Dec. 10 titled People Power in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: A View From the Grassroots. The talk is part of the Lung Yingtai Cultural Foundation’s (龍應台文化基金會) MediaTek TaipeiSalon (台北沙龍) lecture series. Baum cofounded Who Profits From the Occupation (www.whoprofits.org), an online resource providing information about corporate complicity in the occupation of the Palestinian Territories. Her lecture seeks to illustrate how corporations profit from Israel’s control of the Gaza Strip, West Bank and Golan Heights, and how the 3.5 million Palestinians under Israeli military rule have boosted the bottom line of businesses involved in private security, construction, roadblocks, checkpoints and prisons. Baum has infuriated many of her targets because she commonly cites companies by name and draws direct parallels between their business practices and the suffering of the Palestinian people. Baum pulls no punches in her criticisms, making her lectures intellectually stimulating, if not outright provocative. Harry S. Jones of ICRT will moderate the lecture.

■ Taipei Salon (台北沙龍), People Power in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: A View From the Grassroots. The lecture takes place at the GIS Convention Center, B1, 85, Roosevelt Rd Sec 4, Taipei City (台北市羅斯福路四段85B1) and will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation in Mandarin. Admission is free, but those attending must register online at

www.civictaipei.org or by calling (02) 3322-4907

■ Dec. 10 from 2pm to 4pm
