This interview is from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of June 24th.
Paul Larudee, a human rights volunteer and a founder of the Free Gaza and Free Palestine Movements, discusses his involvement in the latest Gaza aid flotilla; MSM news coverage of previous efforts tilted drastically in Israel’s favor; the US State Department warning about likely Israeli violence against non-violent American human rights activists (yet providing no protection or punishment of Israeli actions after the fact); the background of the Gaza blockade following Operation Cast Lead; and the inspiration from the “freedom riders” of the American Civil Rights movement.
