Today our Palestinian voice is that of Sahar Francis, an attorney with Ademeer, a Palestinian Prison support and human rights advocacy organization. She spoke at the Harvard Law School and we were there to record her presentation. Here is a first hand account of the stark realities of Palestinian life under Israeli military occupation.

In Israel's apartheid "justice" system, Israelis are largely pampered and protected. Meanwhile, every Palestinian family has members now or recently imprisoned by the military. Children are in there too. Jailable offenses are vaguely defined. Arrest leads to lengthy indefinite detention, with no access to family or lawyers. Trials happen after long delay, in military courts that convict at the rate of 97%+.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians' struggle for freedom from Israel's brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's modest website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at or by navigating through our playlists. TJR sometimes airs Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine. We hope you'll write to us at if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments.
