Voices of the Mideast and N Africa

In this week’s program, we remember Juliano Mer Khamis, leading Palestinian rights activist, actor, filmmaker and Artistic Director of Freedom Theater in Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West bank. He was shot by unknown assailants in Jenin on Monday, April 4, as he was leaving the theatre.

 We bring you a conversation that U.C. Berkeley History Professor Beshara Doumani had with Juliano Mer Khamis about his award-winning documentary Arna’s Children. Also, Malihe Razazan talks to Nabeel Al Raee, Director of the Freedom Theatre in Jenin, where he worked closely with Juliano Mer Khamis for many years.

 Later in the program, Khalil Bendib speaks with Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri who are among more than 1000 artists calling for a boycott of the $800 million Guggenheim Museum being built in Abu Dhabi over the rights of migrant workers at the constructions site.
