All Eyes on Rafah: World Erupts in Outrage

All Eyes on Rafah: World Erupts in Outrage

On The Freedom Side LIVE, Thursday, 5/30 at 3pm ET/12pm PT, Eugene and Rania are joined by special guests:

Yara Shoufani – A month ago, Biden said that Israel invading Rafah would be a red line. And now after Israel’s airstrike on the Al-Mawasi displacement camp that killed 45 civilians in a designated “safe zone,” the Biden administration has said this does not cross their red line. Yara Shoufani of the Palestinian Youth Movement discusses how Biden’s red line has vanished and how the movement should respond.

Vijay Prashad – While world leaders prepare to convene in Switzerland next month for a “peace summit” ostensibly called to advance peace in Ukraine despite excluding Russia from the meeting, Brazil and China have proposed an alternative. Both countries released a joint statement calling for an international peace conference with equal participation from both Russia and Ukraine. Vijay Prashad, the Executive Director of the Tricontinental Institute, explains how over two years into the war in Ukraine, peace remains nowhere in sight as the US and NATO refuse to allow Ukraine to negotiate.

Jon Elmer – After eight months of relentless massacres on Palestinians, Israel has yet to achieve its main objective of destroying the Palestinian resistance. Despite suffering some losses to their forces, the Palestinian resistance continues to persevere and wage a formidable fight against its US-armed, US-funded occupier. Jon Elmer, a contributing editor at The Electronic Intifada, discusses the strength of the Palestinian resistance and why Israel can continue to massacre, but will never win.

Dayvon Love – It’s been four years since George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. Floyd’s murder sparked a global mass movement demanding an end to police brutality and systemic racism. But has anything changed? Dayvon Love, the Director of Public Policy for Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, will join the show to discuss the uphill battle confronting the movement for Black Lives and the fight to end racist police violence.

Amanda Yee – One of the many cruel side effects of the U.S. blockade of Cuba is that child cancer patients often go without life-saving medicines. U.S.-based activists with The HATUEY Project are working to counter the shortages created by the U.S.’s 60-year blockade on the island. Amanda Yee, Managing Editor of Liberation News, joins the show after returning from Cuba where HATUEY activists delivered $60,000 in cancer medications and medical supplies to pediatric hospitals across Cuba.
