Impressions of Palestine

From the Wall to Halifax

by CKDU News Collective

Demonstrators at the weekly non-violent protest in Bil'in village are met with volleys of tear gas launched by Israeli Defence Forces. Despite IDF regulations, soldiers shoot high velocity tear gas canisters directly at protesters, causing an Israeli protester to suffer a fractured skull and internal bleeding on April 23, 2010.

CKDU 88.1fm presents: 'Impressions of Palestine'.

From the Wall to Halifax:
First hand accounts from Palestinians, Jews, and Canadian activists on recent trips to Occupied Palestine

'Impressions of Palestine' was aired live across North America on May 13th as part of Radio Free Palestine, an award winning radio series (NCRA 2009).

Radio Free Palestine 2010

Radio Free Palestine is presented by the IMEMC (in Beit Sahour, West Bank) and CKUT Radio (in Montreal, Canada) in commemoration of the 62nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba or catastrophe, marked this year on May 15th, 2010.

In 1948 eighty-five percent of the Palestinians living in the areas that became the state of Israel became refugees. More than 500 Palestinian villages were depopulated and later destroyed to prevent the return of the refugees. Today there are a total of 7 million Palestinian refugees, dispersed throughout the world - the largest and longest running refugee problem yet unresolved.

62-years later, Israel continues to occupy and colonize Palestinian land through the construction of Jewish only settlements and the Wall in the West Bank. The Gaza Strip has been turned into one large prison. Israel violates international law and commits ongoing war crimes and crimes against humanity.

CKUT received the 2009 Community Radio Awards for Best Special Programming for the Radio Free Palestine Broadcast held May 15th, 2008. The entirety of that broadcast is archived here: http://imemc.org/radio_free_palestine
