This edition of Salaam Shalom: Report on Palestine/Israel is devoted primarily to examining the genesis, politics, principles, objectives, and accomplishments to date of the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions Campaign against apartheid Israel and its military occupation. It will feature a video produced by student solidarity activists from nine universities in the Greater Boston area called “We Are the Freedom Flotilla”, a short but powerful introduction to BDS narrated by Rafeef Ziadah and produced by the international BDS Coordinating Committee, and a comprehensive overview of the movement and its successes in the first ten years by Omar Barghouti, a co-founder of BDS and one of its most principled and articulate advocates. This edition also opens with excerpts from an interview by Al Jazeera Plus with journalist and activist Max Blumenthal, who was in Gaza during Israel’s massacres in the summer of 2014. Blumenthal is the author of several books, the most recent of which is The 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza.

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
