Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - March 4, 2009 at 7:00pm

In this week’s program, Khalil Bendib in conversation with two labor activists who share with us progress made within the labor movements - internationally and domestically - around the issue of solidarity Palestine. Patrick Craven of COSATU (The Congress of South African Trade Unions ) discusses the latest action taken by a South African union that refused to offload an Israeli ship last month to protest Israel’s bloody massacres in Gaza, and Michael Eisencher of USLAW in Alameda County will talk about nascent efforts from within to break the US labor movement’s long-standing silence and complicity in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

Later in the show, two Bay Area-based Algerian-born musicians, singer-songwriter-activist Moh Alileche and DJ and music producer extraordinaire Chab-i-Sabbah, join us to tell us about an upcoming concert at Ashkenaz in Berkeley on Saturday, March 14.  They will both be participating in the release of Moh Alileche’s long-awaited and newest CD entitled “in Honor of a Hero. “
