We are sitting in the Monyono Commonwealth Resort, in the terrace coffee shop having tea, waiting for the NGO meeting to begin before the official opening of the International Criminal Court Review Confernece in Kampala, Uganda. We’re chatting – about everything from the endless oil spill in the Gulf to the African Union Year of Peace and Security to the discussion of gender justice and the ‘crime of aggression’ amendment discussion here at the Review Conference when we see flash on the bottom of the screen above the bar ‘BREAKING NEWS’. Israel had attacked the flotilla of boats carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza. Were 10 killed? 16? Were they on the boats or on land? Was our colleague Mairead on it? We knew she was supposed to travel on the boat Rachel Corrie from Northern Ireland, but we thought she had left after the others and might not be there yet, thank goodness. But those activists, our colleagues, individual citizens seeking to nonviolently deliver humanitarian aid…And here we were, discussing ‘the end of the era of impunity’ as speaker after speaker would later say the opening cermony of the Review Conference. And yet? Not quite. No more. It is no longer acceptable for the international community to stand by while Israel murders innocent civilians delivering humanitarian aid supplies. It is time for the end of that impunity. No better place to start than the ICC Review Conference, to really usher in the ‘age of accountability’.
