Frank Barat interviews Leila Khaled on refugee rights, the different forms of Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation and what Palestinian leaders should do if negotiations fail.
Frank Barat talks with Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters about his support for the BDS movement and politics in Israel/Palestine.
What Comes Next: The struggle we are fighting for is the right to assert what our life will look like
Frank Barat talks with Leila Farsakh and Noura Erakat in a wide-ranging interview that took place during a conference in Brussels called “New paradigms for Israel/Palestine.” This post is part of “What Comes Next?: A forum on the end of the two-state paradigm.”
Activist Frank Barat interviews Israeli filmmaker Lia Tarachansky about her new film, which tells the story of the fighters who sought to erase Palestine by perpetrating the Nakba.
Frank Barat talks with Noam Chomsky about the current state of the peace process, the ongoing violence in Syria and the threat of a U.S. attack. Chomsky says, “Syria is descending into suicide. It’s a horror story and getting worse and worse. There’s no bright spot on the horizon. What will probably happen, if this continues, is that Syria will be partitioned into probably three regions . . . [and] Israel is looking by and enjoying the spectacle.”
Yet another Palestinian solidarity activist is questioned for hours on entering Israel and refused entry to the occupied territories. Frank Barat, a coordinator of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, had wanted to visit friends in the West Bank. But Israeli security officials demanded he open his email account, so they could see whom he was in touch with. Barat gave a second email account. His story follows
Frank Barat writes a personal remembrance of Stéphane Hessel who died Tuesday at age 95.
65 years after the UN partition plan (that, it is hardly remembered, never went through the UN Security Council, which, in practice makes it legally dodgy) that envisaged to divide Palestine in 2 countries and more than 44 years after the beginning of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, Palestine has become a “non member State” at the United Nations. But what does this upgrade means in symbolic and practical terms?
The US is bombing Pakistan, the EU is its poodle, the UK has invaded everywhere, and Tony Blair is a warmonger — and these are the saviors of the Israel Palestine conflict?
Following the recent 4th session of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in New York, a few articles criticising the initiative were published in The Electronic Intifada, +972mag and The Palestine Chronicle. Those pieces are very shortsighted, often factually wrong and seriously miss the point of the tribunal and of its last session in New York.
Earlier this month a group of London activists took over a building, re-branding it “Palestine Place,” a hub for political discussion and social change.
Frank Barat recounts his recent trip to Canada to speak at Israeli Apartheid Week events across the county where he found a rapidly growing movement for freedom, justice and equality.
