Listen to Radio Intifada this Thursday, April 5, 2007

I just received the following information in an email from Eye Witness Palestine here in LA.
As you may have read in my post a few days ago, there is a sustained effort to silence KPFK radio. The below is the kind of programming for which KPFK is being targeted. BRAVO to this channel for their continuous effort to speak the truth. I added some links within the email itself for further information.

In remembrance of Deir Yassin & Land Day,
Celebrating Free Speech Radio

On April 9, 1948, 124 Palestinians in the village of DeirYassin outside Jeruslaem were massacred in a prelude to what Palestinians call the nakba – the catastrophe – that led to the expulsion and flight of 750,000 Palestinians from what became Israel. 28 years later, on March 30th, six Palestinian citizens of Israel were killed and 100 injured as they went on strike against massive land confiscations in the Galilee,

This week’s program commemorates those events with a focus on the ongoing struggle for peace and justice waged on the ground by Palestinians, Israelis and internationals – and their refusal to be silenced.

In the face of recent, vicious attacks on Radio Intifada and KPFK – accusing us of being anti-Semitic – RADIO INTIFADA is proud to again present the voices of Palestinians and Israelis not heard in mainstream media. We will not be silenced and we will not participate in the silencing of Palestinians and Israelis who speak out against the Israeli violation of human rights, UN resolutions and international law.
