The Electronic Intifada Weekly Podcast - 18 May, 2012

This week on The Electronic Intifada podcast, nearly 2,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails end their collective hunger strike: we’ll have a roundup of news from our correspondents and bloggers, as well as in-depth analysis from Sahar Francis, director of the Palestinian prisoner support organization Addameer, about the details of the agreement to end the history-making hunger strikes, and what still needs to be done in terms of bringing attention to the Israeli occupation regime of arrest and detention; also, the Palestinian Authority remains silent as Israel continues to consolidate its fuel monopoly; a report on Palestinian children who work for a pittance in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank; British student leaders condemn an anti-Palestinian policy at an Israeli college; and news from the global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
