West Philadelphia's community radio station, WPEB 88.1 FM, presents Radio Against Apartheid. Amplifying voices for justice and equality in the Middle East.
On this week's show, DJ Ev Daddy and Matt Graber are joined in the studio by Palestinian Lina Ibrahim, who has just returned to Philadelphia from the occupied West Bank after 10 months there. Lina recounts her participation in demonstrations and support with the International Solidarity Movement. Lina was assaulted by IOF soldiers on Palestine Land Day, March 30, but she says this is nothing compared to the violence others routinely face from soldiers and settlers there in the West Bank.
Also on the program:

Israeli authorities are now going door to door in Tel Aviv, and throughout Israel, and locking up African migrants (legal and illegal migrants and refugees). So far, 240 have been arrested, with another 300 volunteering to be locked up and deported. With racist sentiments prominent throughout Israel, the Israeli government responded by enacting a plan to detain 60,000 Africans in an internment camp and then deport them.
