In this episode we give an introduction to the Israel/Palestine conflict, looking at what’s going on right now as well as giving a broader historical perspective. To help us discuss these issues, we are joined by the co-convenors of Friends of Palestine Western Australia, Sarah Haynes and Alex Whisson. Some of the specific topics we cover are: the maps showing Palestinian loss of land, John Pilger’s great documentary ‘Palestine is still the Issue’, Rachel Corrie, Big Brother series one contestant Sara-Marie Fedele’s attempt to solve the conflict, comparisons between Israel and Apartheid South Africa, the boycotts divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement in Australia and beyond, as well as a rally in Perth for Gaza (look online for a rally near you). We also have a return of the segment ‘What you HAVEN’T learnt from the media this week’, with a focus on Israel/Palestine. Beyond this topic, we also cover sustainable transport and Hurricane Sandy, Transgender Awareness Week and Australia’s only active street medic collective: Melbourne FACT.
