This week on Radio Against Apartheid, we honor the memories of Juliano Mer Khamis, Martin Luther King Jr., and Trayvon Martin.
We are joined on the program by a representative of Addameer, the Palestinian Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association to talk about the recent hunger strikes of Hana Al Shalabi, Khader Adnan, the process of administrative detention, and the “kangaroo courts” of the Israeli military in the occupied territories.
Palestine News Network provides a tribute to the memory of Juliano Mer Khamis, and gives a wrap-up of this week’s news in the occupied territories.
Finally, we are proud to conclude the show with a song from Philadelphia’s own tUnE-yArDs, who back in January canceled their show in Tel Aviv as a demonstration of their support for the Palestinian call for a cultural boycott of Israel.
It should be noted that in the United States prisoners are being unjustly held in solitary confinement. Two such cases which have gotten the attention of the BBC and Amnesty International are those of Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace, two black men held in solitary for almost 40 years.
Please sign Amnesty’s petition to LA state governor Bobby Jindal to have them both released to general population, and to hold the state accountable for this cruel and inhumane punishment.
