Activism and BDS Beat 9 September 2011
On Wednesday, 7 September, I was interviewed by Dennis Bernstein on Flashpoints about the Irvine 11 trial which began earlier this week in Orange County, California.
Dennis and I discussed the opening day of the trial, the “selective and discriminatory” investigation by the Orange County District Attorney’s office to assemble their case against the group of Muslim students from UC Irvine and UC Riverside, and the nature of the trial itself which could set a troubling precedent for free speech and activism cases in the US.

Flashpoints is aired Monday through Friday on 94.1FM KPFA/Pacifica Radio in Berkeley, California.
