Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - November 1, 2006

On tonight's program, as election day fast approaches, we take a look at some of the ways progressive candidates and campaigns are trying to break free from the tyranny of the corporate-sponsored Republican/Democratic duopoly and what in these efforts may be of direct relevance to voters worried about the insanity of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. First, we will speak with Green party senatorial candidate Todd Chretien about the important strides made by his party in standing up and pushing for a more just policy in Israel/Palestine and in the rest of the Middle East, and then we will have a conversation with veteran activist Mary Bisharat on the merits of Proposition 89, which aims to help cleanse California's electoral system of the catastrophic distortions of special interest money, and how such an initiative, should it pass, might help, to some degree, alleviate the death grip of the Zionist lobby on electoral politics in our fair state.

Later on the program, we will talk to Armenian-American sound artist Thea Farhadian and German visual artist Heike Liss about an evening of experimental films by women on Friday, November 10, collaboration between the Meridian Gallery in San Francisco and the Armenian Film Festival.
