Vale Professor Tanya Reinhart

Tanya Reinhart, a powerful Israeli voice, has been lost. She died suddenly of a stroke in New York on Saturday, March 17. Professor Reinhart was a dedicated political and human rights activist and fiercely opposed to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. She was also a proponent of an academic boycott of Israeli universities to protest the occupation. We were lucky to have the opportunity to hear her speak in Sydney in 2006. CJPP joins activists around the world in mourning her death and we extend our sympathy to her friends and family.
