Crossing the Line interviews activist Neta Golan

26 February 2008

This week on Crossing The Line: The ethnic cleansing of Palestine continues. As Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and his government expand settlements in the West Bank while asserting that “painful concessions” are being made, what is really going on behind the scenes? Host Naji Ali* speaks with Ramallah-based activist Neta Golan.

As always, Crossing the Line begins with “This week in Palestine,” a service provided by The International Middle East Media Center.

Crossing the Line is a weekly podcast dedicated to giving voice to the voiceless in occupied Palestine. Through investigative news, arts, eyewitness accounts, and music, Crossing the Line does its best to present the lives of people on the ground.

Crossing the Line’s host, Naji Ali, is an independent journalist currently living in San Francisco. Ali’s South African roots and desire for social change are the reason for his strong solidarity with the Palestinian people. In 1990 Ali was arrested in South Africa where he was detained and tortured for nearly two years by the South African secret police. Ali also lived and worked in the Old City of Hebron in the occupied West Bank.

*Naji Ali was formerly known as Christopher Brown.
