The Nobel laureate, often described as the moral conscience of his nation, died on Boxing Day in Cape Town.

Desmond Tutu was a staunch supporter of the Palestinian cause. Following the Israeli war on Gaza in 2014, he published an op-ed in Haaretz which we reproduced on our website:

Desmond Tutu’s plea to the people of Israel : Liberate yourselves by liberating Palestine
