[creative-radio] CKUT radio: Popular protests in Palestine


* CKUT radio: Popular protests in Palestine
interview with Palestinian writer/author Ali Abunimah

by Stefan Christoff

Listen to an interview with Palestinian writer/author Ali Abunimah on the
growing popular protest movement against Israeli apartheid in Gaza, throughout
the West Bank and particularly in the agricultural village of Bil?in.

Popular protests are growing in the West Bank, pointing to an expanding,
organized grassroots response to the Israeli military occupation at the
community-based level in Palestine, a direct response to the realities of
Israeli apartheid beyond the Palestinian Authority politicians walking the
halls of political power in D.C. pushing forward a negotiation process that has
lead to little results.

Bil'in village's creative protest tactics have drawn international attention
and endorsements from global political voices such as The Elders group lead-by
South Africa's Desmond Tutu. Bil'in the film has also been the focus of films
such as Bil'in Habibti, an progressive Israeli film that documents the popular
struggle against the wall in Bil'in. Beyond Palestine, Bil'in launched a
historic lawsuit in Montreal, Quebec against two corporations, Green Park and
Green Mount International, who are currently constructing Israeli-only
settlements on the Palestinian lands of Bil'in, lands stolen via the Israeli
apartheid wall.
