Archbishop Desmond Tutu, giant in fight against apartheid South Africa, dies at 90


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
