CNI Radio: Trip Jennings, Witness to the ‘Nablus Killings’, April 8th

Filed under: Events and appearances — Carlton Cobb @ 4:33 pm

Human rights activist Trip Jennings will be our guest on CNI: Jerusalem Calling this Thursday, April 8th, from 12 noon to 1 pm ET with CNI board member and host Dr. E Faye Williams. Jennings recently returned home from the occupied Palestinian territories where he worked as media coordinator for the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), an organization which connects the international community to Palestinians working to end the occupation. ISM also advocates the implementation of international law through non-violent direct action.

For months, Jennings lived with Palestinian families forcefully evicted by Jewish settlers in occupied East Jerusalem. He was on the ground in Jerusalem’s old city when tensions erupted into violence. Days later he witnessed the notorious Nablus killings.

As media coordinator he managed and distributed reports from activists across the West Bank and Gaza working closely with the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, a grassroots framework of Palestinian communities actively resisting the occupation.

The show will air live online from 12 noon to 1 pm ET (5 pm to 6pm GMT). To listen, go to the show’s homepage and click on the “Listen Live” button for Studio A, at the top left.

  1. I don’t think countries ought to be encouraged to act in their “national interest”. They ought to defend human rights whether it is in their interest or not.

  2. Unfortunately, Joe, that can be quite a luxury. By far the best case against current Mideast policy is that it is not in America’s interest. Any responsible government MUST do what is best for its nation and people, not some foreign nation. Essentially, AIPAC and similar groups have perverted our policy to the point where it is designed to serve Israeli, not American interests.
