Harley McDonald-Eckersall and Dilan Fernando discuss what you can do to help Palestine, based on conversations they had with Palestinian people on their recent visit to the country. They focus on supporting the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and correcting myths about Palestine. Check out our last episode #226 to hear more about these myths and responses to them from Dilan and Harley.

Also covered regarding Palestine is: recent bombings, the academic article ‘´Etat de si`ege: A dying domesticating colonialism?’ By Ghassan Hage, John Pilger’s documentary Palestine is still the issue, connections between veganism and the BDS movement as both involve a political consumer boycott, the film clip for the song ‘Close Your Eyes (And Count to F**k)’ that highlights more subtle police racism in the USA, and the Palestine Animal League. You can hear Harley and Dilan discuss the Palestine Animal League and animal advocacy under Occupation in Palestine on Freedom of Species.

Finally, Nick has written two articles on the recent coup attempt in Venezuela: ‘Cheerleading for the Coup: An Analysis of Media Coverage of Venezuelan Politics’ and ‘Hoping For More Prayers Rather Than Bombs: A Response to Donald Trump’s Comments on Venezuela’.
