Our Palestinian voice this week is Amahl Bishara, anthropologist, author, activist, and Associate Professor of Anthropology at Tufts University. She is a frequent visitor to the AIDA refugee camp in Bethlehem, which is the home of her husband's family.
Amahl recently wrote an article which was published in the Journal of Ethnographic Theory in which she compared how the Palestinian population which lives in the occupied West Bank and the Palestinian population which lives in Israel conducted resistance through demonstrations and how those differences reflected the reality of their lives. Our host sat down with Amahl at the Radcliffe Institute, where she is currently a fellow, to discuss her article and the observations she made through her research.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly part of Truth and Justice Radio) is an award-winning three-quarter-hour segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians' struggle for freedom from Israel's brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. It's a regular part of Truth and Justice Radio, aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, streaming live and archived for two weeks at wzbc.org; TJR's website, truthandjusticeradio.org, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at radio4all.net or by navigating through our playlists. (At this important time, TJR has been airing Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine.)
