Philip Weiss' blog, mondoweiss is covering this today, in an article titled, Who Would Teargas Avatar?
The award-winning film, Occupation 101: Voices of the Silenced Majority, will be shown at UAA Friday. Here's information from a press release by my friends at Alaskans for Palestine:
A powerful documentary film on the current and historical root causes of the Israeli-Palestine conflict and U.S. government involvement. The film includes thought-provoking commentaries from a "Who's Who List" of leading Middle East scholars, peace activists, religious leaders and humanitarian workers whose voices have too often been suppressed in American media outlets.
