Young People on TikTok Support Palestine. Now They Want to Ban it. Coincidence?

Young People on TikTok Support Palestine. Now They Want to Ban it. Coincidence?

On The Freedom Side LIVE, Thursday, 3/14 at 3pm ET/12pm PT, Eugene and Rania are joined by special guests:

Kj Noh- In a rare show of broad bipartisan support, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to ban the extremely popular app, TikTok. Congress claims that TikTok poses a national security threat due to alleged “Chinese surveillance.” But what is really behind the ban? Kj Noh, a Peace activist, a scholar on the geopolitics of Asia & organizer with Pivot to Peace, joins the show to discuss this absurd outcome of the US Cold War against China.

Yara Shoufani – Over 31,000 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza by the genocidal US-Israeli war. Israel is plunging Gaza deeper into an unprecedented humanitarian crisis, refusing to let aid trucks into the besieged territory and driving thousands of Palestinians to the brink of starvation. As Israel vows to invade Rafah at any moment, the Biden administration continues bypassing Congress to flood Israel with weapons and ammunition. Yara Shoufani, a member of the Palestinian Youth Movement, discusses the potential for the bloodiest chapter in Israel’s onslaught and the turning point of the global movement for the liberation of Palestine.

Kerbie Joseph – Haiti’s unelected Prime Minister Ariel Henry resigned from his post on March 11 after repeated waves of protests calling for his resignation. As the violence waged by US-supplied paramilitary groups in Haiti intensifies, the US is seeking to use the political instability as an opening for more foreign intervention in the country. Kerbie Joseph, an organizer with the ANSWER Coalition, discusses the ongoing struggle for a free and sovereign Haiti and why foreign intervention is not the solution to the deepening crisis.

Rutendo Matinyarare – The US has lifted its two-decade-old unilateral and illegal sanctions program on Zimbabwe, opting instead for targeted sanctions on specific individuals and entities, including President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Zimbabwe stands as one of the most sanctioned countries in the world, as different Western powers target the nation with sanctions in an effort to destabilize it for resisting their influence. Rutendo Matinyarare, the Chairperson of Zimbabwe Anti-Sanctions Movement (ZASM) and founder of Zimbabweans Unite Against US War Sanctions (ZUAUWS) joins the show to discuss what the US’s move means for Zimbabwe.
