Movie Moles Denise Morris and Jan Haaken discuss Free Angela and All Political Prisoners, a documentary about the 1970-72 indictment and trial of the philosophy professor, communist party member, and Black activist Angela Davis, accused of complicity in a failed and fatal attempt to free Black Panther George Jackson. Director Shola Lynch calls her film a crime drama and a love story. Denise and Jan note the oddity of Lynch's decision to promote a romantic version of the relation between Davis and George Jackson, since it was the prosecution's story that cast her as a lovesick woman, a framing Davis resisted. 15:40 minutes (7.18 MB)
Bill Resnick talks with attorney Barbara Harvey about the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement. Barbara explains BDS is a nonviolent form of resistance to the Israeli occupation of Palestine, aiming to ensure not only the end to Israeli occupation, but also equal rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel, and recognition of Palestinians' right to return to their homes. The movement began in 2005 in a united call from almost all of Palestinian civil society, and seeks to place economic pressure not only on companies doing business with Israel, but also on all businesses that support the occupation directly or indirectly.
