Flashpoints - December 26, 2007

Our Palestine Bureau Chief Kristen Ess reports from the occupied city of Bethlehem, as Israeli forces continue to kidnap, arrest, attack, and shoot Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza strip during Christmas celebrations; also, JR and the Block Report feature an update on police terrorism in Chicago; and activists in Santa Cruz and Berkeley, California, talk about why tree-sits are necessary actions to defend the environment, native land and the community from University collaborations with nuclear and military corporate contractors.
