Today we again provide some context to the horror evolving before our eyes in Gaza. By only listening to the Israeli narrative, which is reflected in our mainstream media, we are led to believe that this genocidal assault by Israel began on October 7th, triggered by,a so-called terrorist raid on Israel by Hamas. That narrative disregards several facts, among them that Palestine has been living under military occupation for 75 years. Hamas’ raid must be put in the context of the International right of Palestinians to resist that occupation, and resist the siege of Gaza and the apartheid being imposed on them.

So, we begin with a European voice, that of Greek political leader and diplomat Yanis Varoufakis, who helps us understand the context for the Gaza Genocide. Varoufakis is a Greek economist and politician. Since 2018, he has been Secretary-General of Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25), a left-wing pan-European political party he co-founded in 2016. We hear him today in an excerpt of an interview conducted in the UK.

Following that, our feature presentation today is a wonderful interview with journalist and cartoonist Joe Sacco, whose unique coverage of the occupation is legendary. We leave the formal introduction of Sacco to Chris Hedges, who conducted this interview.
