First a local report; then, our host's direct interview with Canadian journalist/activist Eva Bartlett.
Bowing to a campaign by Zionist donors, Northeastern University's administration has abruptly banned the campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine. This was triggered by a purposely dramatic SJP action: placing Israel-style mock eviction notices under dormitory doors. The goal was to awaken the student community to Israel's daily practice in Palestine. But the reason given by NU's administration for banning was transparently flimsy, in actuality showing its willingness to silence any criticism of Israel.
Eva Bartlett was able to slip into Gaza in 2008, where she stayed for five years as a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement. She accompanied Gaza farmers and fisherman under threat of harassment and sniper fire from Israeli forces. She rode with medics in their ambulances during Operation Cast Lead, Israel’s devastating assault on Gaza in 2008-2009 that killed more than 1,400 Gazans. She has documented the 2012 Israeli attacks from a hospital in the central Gaza strip.She brings many shocking stories and photos back home.
