From 1970 this human rights group was chaired by Israel Shahak. It was briefly a member of the International League for Human Rights but was suspended in 1973.[1] This was related to the organisation's 1972 AGM, on 16 November, which was broken up by some 200 members of the Young Israeli Labour Party [2] assisted by members of the GSS.[3] Both Uri Davis and Felicia Langer have served as vice-chair.
