This week on COVID, Race and Democracy, a collective effort by producers from the Pacifica Network and radio affiliates, “we hear voices of solidarity with Palestine on the 73d anniversary of the Nakhba, when over 750 thousand Palestinians were expelled by massacre from their homeland. We also review some history.”

In this episode, COVID Race, and Democracy argues that in order to understand the Israel Palestine conflict, “we must first understand the colonial imperialist settler project behind Zionism.”

Featured guests:

Rabab Abdulhadi, chair of the San Francisco State University Arab & Muslim Ethnicities & Diasporas program

Abby Martin, host of the Empire Files

Dima Khalidi, director of Palestine Legal
