Info on Podcast #81

Special Report: Gaza Freedom March. We talk to 3 Americans who joined 1400 people from around the world in Cairo, Egypt–attempting to cross into Gaza to join Palestinians in a march to remind the world of Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza just a year ago. Ali Glenesk is a student at UC Berkeley who we talked to in Podcast 78; Tom McAfee is an activist and independent journalist from the Bay Area, and Col. Ann Wright (retired from US military and State Dept) is a courageous peace promoter who has been on our show many times. You’ll hear their accounts of the efforts to persuade the Egyptian government to let them cross the border, and their encounters with Cairo citizens and riot police.
