Sinha kindly invited me onto his show, The East is a Podcast in April — and of course I jumped at the chance.
The East is a Podcast is absolutely one of my top podcasts — you should definitely subscribe!
This is the video of a talk that Brighton Palestine Solidarity Campaign invited me to give at their annual AGM in June.
In it I talk about: the role of independent media within the Palestine solidarity movement, specifically The Electronic Intifada; and about Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs and its covert war against BDS, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
