The Electronic Intifada Weekly Podcast - 10 May 2012

This week on The Electronic Intifada podcast: Israel’s top court rejects the appeals of two Palestinian prisoners who have been on hunger strike in Israeli jail for more than 70 days; up-to-date coverage of the ongoing hunger strike protests by the thousands of Palestinian prisoners as the international media continues to refuse to take notice; Israeli forces raid the Ramallah offices of the grassroots Stop the Wall campaign, stealing computers and hard drives; plus, in news from the global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, the new French president says that the boycott of Israeli goods is “illegal,” yet a Paris court acquits more BDS activists and ruled that it cannot be deemed “incitement to discrimination” to call for the boycott of a state; and we speak with our correspondents Asa Winstanley and Linah Alsaafin in the West Bank about the protests in support of the hunger strikers and the Palestinian Authority’s reaction, and the case of four brothers in one family who are all currently in Israeli prisons.
